Winter time calls for warming herbs that help us circulate, clear out and renew. Stuck indoors with stuffy, dry air and depressed immunity leads to lingering coughs and colds that take weeks to clear up. That is why I created the “Deep Breath” blend with equal parts wildcrafted mugwort, mullein and mint. A splash of lemon adds Vitamin C and a touch of honey sweetens this medicinal brew that my whole family loves – and yours will, too!

Simple Ingredients: 

Lemon juice, honey, and Deep Breath bulk or individual sachets
