Nature's Beauty. Echinacea
I've taken echinacea for years but was surprised to learn it's origins are in the flowering daisy family.
Being cold and flu season, it's a good idea to keep the natural remedy in your cupboard or medicine cabinet. If you choose the liquid form make sure it's alcohol free.
I keep echinacea tea in the house as well as the capsule form. It's great to take if you feel might be coming down with a cold, flu or sore throat (add a bit of goldenseal). Additionally, the herb is also beneficial for other ailments such as urinary tract infections, gum disease and tonsillitis.
