If you feel a bit of the flu coming on or have a really sore throat, this is a great herbal remedy.


1 tsp dried sage

1 tsp thyme leaves

1 tsp licorice root powder

1 tsp cayenne pepper (optional – suggest not if it is for children)


Place the sage and thyme in an enclosed tea strainer and pour over 500mL of boiling water. Place the tea strainer in the solution for at least 15 minutes and stir in the licorice root powder. You will need to stir before each use as the powder will settle. Simply keep in the fridge and pour a bit into a cup a couple of times a day and gargle and spit. It is a pretty nice cup of herbal tea as well if you like (without the cayenne pepper).
