Mullein and Yarrow Tea

On a recent outing I found myself feeling a little under the weather. I couldn’t breathe because my nose absolutely stopped up on me. I started to feel a little feverish and my chest was beginning to feel a little congested. I had been camping for a few days and while the days were well into the 70s the nights were falling into the low 40s. One night dropped into the high thirties so I know breathing that cold night air didn’t do me any favors. For one I was suffering from some pretty bad seasonal allergies which resulted in the mucus draining into my ears and chest, not a good deal.

These types of issues can actually result in the onset of pneumonia. Knowing what area I was in I knew that the Mullein would help me with my congestion and help open up my lungs while the yarrow would help with my fever and a host of other issues.

I quickly boiled up some water on the fire. Once the water was done boiling I added the herbs I had picked. This was 4 small Mullein leaves and 8 or 9 sprigs of yarrow. I allowed them to steep for about 20 minutes then strained them off through a bandanna into another container. I quickly drank this up and with in a few minutes I could breathe again. Had I needed more I could have taken more in around 3 to 4 hours. I generally find that I get really fast and amazing results anytime I use a natural remedy.

Understand that yarrow is considered edible. However it does have toxic properties and should be consumed in small quantities.
