When our herbs arrived I needed to test out a few things like our scale, bags, and measuring devices. To accomplish this I decided to make a blend that would hopefully help with our daughters seemingly non-stop cough, you know that one we all get this time of year and none of the cold remedies work?
I sat down with some of our herb books and decided on 3 herbs that would make up the remedy: 2g Galangal root, 1g Mullein Leaf, and 1g Echinacea leaf. I took this home and simmered it in 473ml of water (that’s about 2 cups) for 5 minutes and then let it rest for another 15 minutes before straining.
The resulting infusion was very pleasing to smell and our daughter gobbled up the spoonful that I gave her without any foul remarks or issues. That night she was not coughing and when she woke up she was quite chipper.
