Appalachian Cold Care Tea
This blend is a re-creation of what a rural family herbalist might brew up when they felt like they were coming down with something, based on what was growing in the garden and on the land around them. Echinacea stimulates immune response, while peppermint decongests and red clover helps clear the respiratory tract. Mullein soothes sore throats and helps clear the lungs, while boneset is an all-around cold and flu herb from the Appalachian tradition.*
- Ingredients: Echinacea, peppermint, red clover, mullein, boneset

Wooden Spoon Herbs is a small-batch southern Appalachian apothecary. Rather than tap into the booming global herb trade, where herbs are imported from countless countries and travel countless miles, Wooden Spoon Herbs products are thoughtfully made with American-grown herbs. Founded by an herbalist, writer, forager , and gardener born & raised in Tennessee, Wooden Spoon Herbs' focus is using traditional Appalachian plants, both wild and cultivated, in global ways.
Wooden Spoon Herbs aims to inspire and empower their community to take self-care into their own hands in a very real and connected way. The plants they work with have been either lovingly picked by their own hands, sourced from small family-run medicinal herb farms or grown with the utmost care by local farmers and foragers in their bio-region.
