Elderflower Tea for Colds

Elderflower tea can reduce nasal congestion especially when taken as a hot tea before bed. It can cut the duration of a cold when taken at first sypmtoms and drank hot, 3-4 times a day.

Use:

2 heaping teaspoons dried elderflowers or 4 heaping teaspoons fresh. (always remember that dried herbs are twice as strong as fresh)

1 1/4 cups boiling water.

pour the boiling water over the flowers, cover and infuse for 5 minutes. Strain and drink hot. A squeeze of lemon juice or a bit of honey will improve both the medicinal qualities and the taste.
