Natural Cold and Flu Remedies That You Can Make at Home with Herbs

Stock up on these herbs for natural cold and flu remedies that will boost your immune system and help you feel better faster!

I’ve had phenomenal success with some particular herbs meant to help boost our immune systems and support our bodies when we get sick – particularly during cold and flu season.


You can make a very nourishing tea that will support your immune system as it is fighting off a cold or flu.

I would suggest 2 key herbs that can help do that: Elderberry Echinacea I like to steep a bit of both for a warm herbal tea, and I often add peppermint herb for a yummy mint flavor.


I suggest making a homemade elderberry syrup and freeze it in batches to always have it on hand. It’s even great for gifting during the Holidays!

Having the syrup can be more convenient and concentrated than a tea. Give a small dose to your family daily during the hight of the cold and flu season or when you have been around someone that is sick.


For another immune boosting option that is super convenient, try these cold care capsules from Rosemary’s book.  These 4 powdered herbs come together in a vegetable or gelatin capsule, to pack an amazing immune boosting punch.

1.Echinacea root powder 2. Goldenseal root powder 3. Marsh mallow root powder 4. Cayenne powder

You just mix all these powders together and pack inside the capsules. At the first sign of a cold or flu, you can take 2 capsules every 2-3 hours (or up to 9 capsules a day) until the symptoms ease.
