Herbs For Fall: Cold and Flu

Herbs For Fall: Cold and Flu

With cold and flu season here and COVID case numbers on the rise yet again, it is important we gear up and protect our bodies as best we can. Last week we talked about Herbs for Fall from an immune boosting point of view. Now this week let’s have a conversation about some herbs that might be useful if you start to feel a little under the weather. 

As we mentioned last week. Panacea was a goddess of healing by way of curative medicine in Greek mythology. Our Panacea line of teas and tinctures includes not only the Immune Defense products featured in last week's blog but also a Cold and Flu line. These teas and tinctures feature herbs like mullein, echinacea, elderflower, and yarrow.

Panacea Cold and Flu Tea a gentle blend is that is a perfect companion for a sick day, as it may help ease the aches and discomfort associated with seasonal illnesses. Herbs like elderflower and mullein have been traditionally used by herbalists to support mucous membranes, while assisting the immune system. This formula may also help to soothe coughs and assist the body’s natural ability to expel phlegm.*

Like the tea the Panacea Cold and Flu Tincture is formulated with ingredients used by traditional herbalists to help fight the common cold, viruses, and allergies.* We think the tincture gives a little bit more instant relief because you may take it orally without waiting to boil any water and steep the tea. These are also great on the go, and this is why many choose the tincture during this time of year. 




Mullein (click title for more information)


Mullein has been noted as the go to ear and lung remedy, especially when pollen is in abundance during those seasonal shifts. Luckily, this herbal ally has been used since ancient Egyptian times and has remained relevant ever since. Mullein provides a multitude of applicable uses, not limited to just respiratory and immune balance.*  

Echinacea (click title for more information)


Echinacea, also referred to as Cornflower, is well known for its immune-boosting abilities; having historical relevance in American folk herbalism dating back centuries. Its reputation as a cold and flu remedy is quite common, and has become one of the most available dietary supplements in health and food stores to date.* 

Elderflower (click title for more information)


The Elder tree has been used by herbalists and healers alike since the fifth century A.D, and has a rich folklore beyond its physical uses. The Elder tree is said to be the doorway to the underworld, inhabited by fairies who both heal and harm, and bring about mystical dreams onto all those who sleep under the canopy. The Elderflower is a powerful medicine with many modern day applications.*



Yarrow (click title for more information)


Do not be fooled by the intoxicating scent or delicate flowers of the Yarrow plant- it has been used for centuries in ceremonies promoting both physical and emotional boundaries to those easily influenced, and also for its eclectic first-aid applications among many. Yarrow is intertwined in folklore and across cultures, all highlighting the variety of therapeutic properties found in this healing herb.*

While strengthening the immune system is important, these herbs and products are here to help should you start feeling under the weather.

Why Your Body Prefers Natural Herbal Medicine

Plants grow wild and abundant on this planet, and have always been the first chosen medicines of all cultures. Plant medicine and specifically medicinal herbs have adapted over time as humans cultivate and wildcraft them to meet our medicinal needs. Modern pharmaceutical medicine is relatively new and has only been around for a few hundred years. However, what most people do not realize is that most of the pills you purchase in a store were created in labs to chemically copy the natural compounds found in wild plants.
