Flu Recovery Tea Recipe by Botanist Dimitris Kallimanis

“In a mug of freshly boiled water add 7g in equal measure of red rose petals, lavender flowers, oregano leaves, thyme leaves, mountain tea and dittany (diktamos). Leave to steep for 10-15 minutes. Add 1 tbsp of thyme honey, which has antimicrobial and warming actions. Lavender, thyme and diktamos have strong antibiotic properties and are effective in treating fever, infections and respiratory ailments. Red rose petals also help to reduce fever, while mountain tea acts as a tonic and detoxifier for the internal organs.”
