Elder Tea

From Dr. Christopher's School of Natural Healing book
Flu remedy, fevers, inflammation

1 ounce Elder flowers (Sambucus canadensis)
1 ounce Peppermint leaves (Mentha piperita)

Preparation: Place in appropriate vessel and pour 1/2 pint (2 cups) of boiling distilled water over the herb, cover tightly and keep warm on stove for 15 minutes, strain and cover immediately and keep warm.

Dosage: 1 teacupful every 30 to 45 minutes until the patient perspires; then 2 tablespoonfuls every 1 to 2 hours.

Administration: This tea taken hot will break down congestions, equalize circulation, and restore a functional equilibrium. Keep patient well covered in bed overnight; then sponge the body in the morning with equal parts of apple cider vinegar and water (this will act as a tonic and cleanse waste from the pores). For children: Give smaller doses and sweeten. (SNH)

I too enjoy a elder tea.But haven't used peppermint in it. will have to try it.  I add honey and lemon to Elderberry juice.   Also have made a "cough syrup" that has worked really well for most of the flu's going around. Has elder juice, honey, lemon and in some.. i added clove oil, to help with sore throats.

wonderful holictic healing!
