When your child has a fever, you want to help him or her feel better, fast. This gentle, natural tea can help to reduce the fever, naturally, without interfering with the body’s ability to fight off the illness.
Yarrow – Yarrow is the go-to herb for fevers. It helps to open pores so the body can release extra heat naturally.
Catnip – Catnip helps children relax and also increases sweating, which helps lower fevers.
Peppermint – Peppermint, too, helps to open pores and increase sweating, plus it has a pleasant taste that most children like. You may use spearmint instead, if you prefer.
