    Immuni-Tea

    Drink this tea for comforting immune support. Nettle is thought to help modulate the immune system with antiviral effects, while chamomile may help bring calm for a restful night’s sleep to give our immune system the chance it needs to regenerate.  Menthol in wild mint helps open up sinuses and calm the stomach, and a final squeeze of fresh lemon gives a boost of vitamin C.
