Do you feel like you are surrounded by coughing and sneezing people? Need a little help combating invading germs? ImmuniTea is a wonderful immune system booster that can be used daily during the cold and flu season. It is full of nourishing herbs that will help your body fight viruses and infections naturally.
Tea is a huge part of my life! As a mom and herbalist I turn to herbs for healing every single day. They are my lifeline for health and wellness along with a real food diet!
Classic immune boosting herbs are used in this blend that support the immune system and keep it strong. They have been used for thousands of years to prevent illness and have a long history of effectiveness. This is a blend that my family has been using for quite a long time with wonderful results. It’s one of the many natural tools we use to prevent illness or shorten duration.
What you’ll need to make ImmuniTea
I’ve linked to where you can buy all the ingredients for your convenience.
Organic Elderberries – Rich in antioxidants and vitamins A, B, and C. Used to fight colds, coughs, flu, bacterial and viral infections. Bioflavonoids along with other proteins in elderberry destroy the ability for a cold or flu virus to infect the cell.
Organic Elderflowers – Wonderful for the respiratory system. Helps keep allergies at bay and the sinuses clear. Also wonderful for fevers, especially those that come on suddenly. It helps support the body’s natural defenses.
Organic Chamomile – Very calming and anti-inflammatory. Wonderful for stomach ailments and colds. Also has antibacterial properties.
Organic Rose Hips – Contain 50% more vitamin C than oranges! Excellent immune system booster. Also high in vitamin A and a variety of antioxidants.
Organic Astragalus – Wonderful immune enhancing herb. Useful in preventing the common cold.
Organic Echinacea Purpurea – Stimulates the cells so they can fight infection. Has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties.
Use 1 part of each herb for this blend. A part can be anything from a teaspoon to a cup or beyond. I make this in large batches for my store so I use a cup as my part. The recipe looks like this:
- 1 part elderberries
- 1 part elderflowers
- 1 part chamomile
- 1 part rose hips
- 1 part astragalus
- 1 part echinacea
Simply mix all the herbs together and store in an airtight container.
Using a tea ball or by leaving it loose in a mason jar or tea-designated French press, use 1 tsp of ImmuntiTea per 1 cup of hot water and steep for at least 20 minutes or overnight for a more potent herbal infusion. If keeping tea loose, strain through a mesh strainer and sweeten with raw honey for additional healing properties. Can also sweeten with Stevia(herb added to the blend, or liquid – homemade or store-bought) or leave unsweetened.
This tea is safe for all ages and is wonderful sipped hot or cold. Individuals with autoimmune diseases should use caution when using any immune stimulating herb. I do not recommend this tea in those cases.
Drink throughout the day when you know you will be or have been exposed to illness, or are starting to feel sick.
