This Monday at Herb Companion HQ, we all showed up with sniffles. I can feel it coming on ... my nose is twitchy, my shoulders are achy, and my throat is scratchy. But right now it's still a baby cold. Here's hoping echinacea can come to my rescue! I'm hitting the Ulitmate Strength Echinacea from Jash Botanicals our Editor in Chief left on my desk a few months ago when I was wheezing --- I'm using it early and often this time around. This particular mixture is Echinacea angustifolia root in grain alcohol. I just put a couple of dropper-fulls in my water and try to drink a glass of water every hour or two. I'm almost out of this stuff. I think next time I'll try their Ultra Immune, which has both Echinacea purpurea and Echinacea angustifolia.
