Expectorant Herbal Tea Mix

Expectorants treat coughs and congestion caused by the common cold, bronchitis, and other illness affecting breathing.

This is how to make yourself an expectorant herbal tea blend:

  • 15 parts Stinging nettle leaf
  • 15 parts Thyme
  • 5 parts Marsh Mallow leaf
  • 5 parts Licorice
  • 2 parts Mallow flower
  • 5 parts Centaury
  • 5 parts Linden flower

Use one tablespoon of the blend of herbs for a cupful of tea. Drink one or two cups daily till your symptoms persist, but no longer than one month.

The numbers in the recipes represent the weight ratios or units; e.g., grams(g), drams(dr), ounces(oz), etc.

Use a kitchen scale to measure each type of herbs.

To mix the measured herbs, use a bowl.

Keep your compound in an airtight container.
