Being able to step out into the back garden and harvest some herbs is a real gift.
My kids have had a stonking cold, I was the last to go down . Listening to my youngest i can hear he is still super phlegmy – Ground ivy (Glechoma hederacea, in the mint family) immediately sprung to mind so I nipped into the garden to harvest a load before it goes over. His tea is brewing as I type this (other ingredients in pic 2).
I already have fresh Ground ivy tincture brewing. This lot will be dried for home use as teas. Best I dilute his brew with cold water and get it up to him before school
