Throat Tonic Tea (Horehound & Hyssop) – $4.00/ounce  
Horehound  can effectively alleviate coughs, even as severe as whooping cough. It eases sore throats and acts as an expectorant, loosening phlegm in the lungs to promote breathing. Hyssop pairs well with horehound in treating respiratory issues, feeble stomach, digestion and sore throat. Horehound can be a bitter, so I’ve added to this blend some peppermint which also helps with spasmodic coughing and sweetens the taste. I suggest sweetening further with raw, local honey.

About Caitelen The Herbalist:

Necessity is indeed the mother of invention. When baby #1 had her first real diaper rash I sought the help of my midwife, who is an excellent herbalist. She taught me how to make and use the sweet, healing balm, called salve.  Soon after, I was playing with variations on her recipe and experimenting with new herbs. Thus, I became an amateur herbalist, hungrily reading and learning as much as I could about using herbs in various forms. I have seen how gentle and effective they are, and how responsive the body can be to their healing properties. 

I believe in a well-rounded approach to health that also includes exercise, whole, full-fat, real foods, essential oils, homeopathy, chiropractic care, and most importantly healthy relationship with God and a good prayer life.

I use as many organic materials as I can, and grow as many of my own herbs as I am able to. My goal is to keep things priced reasonably, but I am willing to consider making a trade for art, services, food, or other wares! My heart in these endeavors is to spread the love of herbs in my community and educate friends and neighbors about the benefits of using them at home. 

**All of these products are hand-made with care and with quality ingredients. They are for use as preventative, pampering, soothing, or promoting your holistic health. They are NOT guaranteed to cure anything. Please keep in mind that I am not a certified herbalist and you should consult with a professional or doctor if ailments persist.***
