Best herbs for colds

To fight colds, you need herbs with the two main following properties:

  • Antiseptic/antimicrobials to help the immune system combat the viral infection.
  • Febrifuge to help reducing fever.

Below is a list of herbs than can be used:

  • Echinacea: there have been more than 300 scientific investigations on the immune-enhancing effects of Echinacea. This is one of the most popular herbs in the treatment of the common cold.
  • Baylahuen is febrifuge: an infusion of baylahuen is what you need to help reduce the fever when suffering from common cold.
  • Thyme has power antiseptic properties. It is a good choice to fight infection and alleviate its symptoms.
  • Elderberry can be taken to treat respiratory problems such as cold and flu. It will reduce congestion of respiratory tract, and possibly making you sweat more.

Recommended combinations:

Echinacea + Elderberry / Baylahuen + Thyme / Echinacea + Baylahuen
