Ingredients:

Chickweed

Chickweed has been used in folk medicine for skin conditions, indigestion and a variety of other conditions, such as cough, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, stomach ulcers and as a "blood cleanser". Today, chickweed is rarely taken internally. It's more common as a topical remedy for skin conditions.

Comfrey

Lavender is a showy herb that can be included in a medicinal, culinary or ornamental garden. The botanical name lavandula comes from the Latin word lavare, meaning "to wash."

Eucalyptus

The Eucalyptus tree is one of the most useful trees in the world. Eucalyptus oil was in huge demand during World War 1, as it was used to control a meningitis outbreak and for the influenza of 1919. Eucalyptus is one of the most universal and versatile of essential oils. Some of its many properties include analgesic, antiseptic, deodorant, expectorant, and vermifuge (anti-parasitic). Eucalyptus has a predominately stimulating effect on the nervous system and therefore should assist those suffering from depression and lethargy. Known as a 'stimulating' expectorant due to its invigorating action on the mucus membranes, it is widely considered an effective remedy for respiratory ills. Additionally Eucalyptus is used to relieve muscular aches and pains, in particular those of a 'cold' nature such as rheumatic pains. Although eucalyptus is considered generally safe for aroma therapy, it is prudent to avoid use in infants.
