This herbal combination of elecampane, mullein, thyme, ginger and cinnamon has warming, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and expectorant actions. Elecampane root is anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, giving it lung protective effects. Mullein leaf soothes the mucus membranes in the respiratory tract, and is wonderful for irritation affecting the respiratory system. Thyme adds an antiseptic, antispasmodic and tonic influence; and ginger and cinnamon are warming and anti-inflammatory. Excellent for coughs, blocked noses, congestion, excessive mucus and other symptoms of colds, flu, and sinus infection.
Autumn represents discernment: the capacity to take in, and let go; physically, mentally and emotionally; allowing us to ‘breathe easy’.

The elecampane is grown in my organic garden (and one of my most revered plants!) The mullein has also made her home there too. The other ingredients are ethically sourced and lovingly made into tinctures using time, care and patience.
