Respiratory irritation can occur from environmental exposure or seasonal discomfort.

Breathe deeply and support your lungs with these time-honored herbs.
Our lung care combination extract goes well in water or juice or can be taken directly on the tongue and includes:
Elecampane: This root has been used for its healthful properties in traditional European herbalism since the time of ancient Greece. It is considered energetically warming and drying with a special affinity for the digestive and respiratory systems. Elecampane was also a part of various Native American healing systems, where the roots were utilized for their wellness supporting qualities.
Horehound: With a long history of use for its wellbeing support in traditional European folk herbalism, this energetically bitter and cooling herb was employed for its affinity for the respiratory and digestive systems.
Marshmallow: Traditional folk practices used marshmallow to comfort the mucous membranes of the body, as well as an external poultice. Marshmallow root provides natural mucilage that supports, soothes, and moistens mucous membranes of the respiratory, digestive, and urinary tracts.*
Mullein: With its distinctive yellow blossoms, mullein has been revered for its healthful benefits for at least 2,000 years. The leaves have an exceptional affinity for the respiratory system and are regarded for their expectorant and demulcent properties. Mullein’s energetic actions include cooling, drying, and moistening.
Pleurisy: Asclepias tuberosa has been traditionally used by indigenous cultures for centuries. Much of the plant is edible, including the young shoots, flower buds, and stems. The fibers can be fashioned into fabric or rope. Pleurisy root has an affinity for the pulmonary system and is commonly used topically for a range of healthful benefits.
Ginger: This botanical has been valued as a zesty spice and a reliable herb for centuries, with the first recorded uses found in ancient Sanskrit and Chinese texts. Pungent and warming ginger is now a widely known herb in most parts of the world and has been incorporated into many folk herbal practices. In Traditional Chinese Medicine this root was utilized to support the lung, spleen, heart, and stomach meridians for thousands of years.
Licorice: An impressive number of Chinese herbal formulas (over 5,000) contain licorice root to sweeten teas and to “harmonize” contrasting herbs. Many traditional healing modalities treat Glycyrrhiza glabra as a tonic herb. Licorice root has an affinity for the digestive and respiratory systems and has adaptogenic tendencies.
