Spiced Relief

Ingredients

1 teaspoon anise seeds, crushed or ground
2-3 cinnamon sticks
1 inch of ginger, sliced
1-2 teaspoons dried loose Echinacea


Method

Combine spices and Echinacea in a pot with three cups of water.  Bring to a boil and then simmer for 15-20 minutes to make a decoction. Strain into a mug and add honey to taste. 

This is a multifunction tea. Anise acts as an expectorant, ginger soothes the cough, and cinnamon has anti-bacterial properties.
