Around this time of year, a lot of people endure allergy symptoms or colds. With a good portion of the population either stuffed up with congestion or managing runny noses, it’s a great time to clear out the respiratory organs.
Elder flower is a beautiful ally for this job. Just like her brother elder berry, the flower is also great for cleansing. Doing an herbal steam tent or drinking tea with elder flower will aid in mucous expulsion, decrease inflammation of the mucosal lining, reduce mucous production, and dry up secretions.
