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.
