Immune Support Tea by The Essential Herbalist


This is a wonderful winter tea to keep your immune system strong! Mix this up well and keep in an airtight container (I love canning jars!) for easy use!



1 oz Alfalfa

1 oz Red clover

2 oz Burdock root cut

1 oz St. John’s Wort tops

1 oz Echinacea root cut

2 oz Echinacea tops

2 oz Peppermint leaf

1 oz Nettle leaf

1 oz Dandelion root cut

1 oz Astragalus root cut

1 oz Spearmint leaf


Place all of the above in a large bowl and mix thoroughly.  Store in air-tight containers. Use 1 heaping teaspoon or more to 1 cup of hot filtered water.  Do not boil your water – heat to just before boiling. Pour the water over the herbs in your mug and cover and let steep for 10 min.  Sweeten with honey or stevia but please no sugar (it suppresses your immune system!). It is delicious without sweetener…nice and minty!


This makes approximately one pound of tea.  Put in pretty jars with a ribbon and a tag and give as gifts! Drink daily during winter or when you feel your health has been compromised!
