Echinacea Tea Benefits
Echinacea tea is derived from an herb found in scattered patches in rich prairie soil or sandy soil. In the Unites States, Echinacea is most abundant in the areas from Texas to Alabama, and in the heartland from Kansas to Nebraska.
Echinacea grows to a height of 2 to 3 feet. The color of the flowers of the echinacea range from whitish rose to pale purple. It has brown fruiting heads that are conical, stiff, and chaffy. The plant has a thick, blackish root. The two most potent species of this plant include Echinacea angustifolia and Echinacea purpurea.
Echinacea is used as a traditional herbal treatment for problems in proper immune system functioning, as well as respiratory concerns. The Native American Indians have used the Echinacea herb for several hundred years.
How to make Echinacea Tea
Echinacea Tea is prepared by simply infusing the leaves, stems, flowers and roots of the Echinacea plant in hot water. The natural healthy properties of the herb, principally the polysaccharides and echinaceoside, are transferred to the Echinacea tea during the infusion process.
In times of stress, in harsh environments or seasons, whenever the body is in need of reinforcement, echinacea tea may be used to supply the boost required to maintain the body’s resistance to infection, to mend injured tissue, and to stimulate healthy body functioning.
