Pollen is the main culprit in this battle between your immune system and nature. Basically, every time spring rolls around trees, flowers, and weeds release an allergen (like pollen) into the air that your body decides is a dangerous foreign substance and needs to fight off. Symptoms can be as mild as a runny nose and as extreme as your throat closing up.

Our organically grown ingredients and how they help:
Horehound is a bitter mint-family herb, and it is often used in cough drops, with proven ability to help suppress a nasty cough. Its main benefit is that it helps thin and move mucus buildup, so if you are stuffed up, this might do the trick.
With soothing and healing properties Mullein is a respiratory remedy that can fight irritation or inflammation. It is an excellent supportive herb in a tea that will leave you feeling calm and like you can breathe deeply again.
Stinging Nettle Leaf
Stinging Nettle has been proven to be an effective anti-histamine and even has the ability to inhibit multiple inflammatory events. It is an herb that is going to put in a ton of work for you and target several areas at once.
Recently it has been credited in helping relieve asthma symptoms because of the rosmarinic acid found in it. This acid, which has both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, is what makes it appealing to seasonal allergy sufferers as well. Basically, the rosmarinic acid can help suppress the inflammatory responses of white blood cells as well as allergic antibodies, making it a great option as a natural allergy relief.
A natural decongestant with calming properties. Ask any cat - they swear by it.
Marshmallow is a demulcent herb; it has a smooth, slimy texture that soothes dry, irritated, or inflamed tissues of the throat and lungs.
Ginger is a natural antihistamine and great for the immune system.
Wild cherry bark is an ingredient often used in herbal cough syrups. It has a soothing, sedative-like action on the respiratory system and also acts as a digestive aid.
