Daily herb tip: cayenne for influenza

Cayenne, a stimulant, is very warming to the system making it beneficial to the heart and circulation, and is considered an all-around useful first-aid remedy, especially for arthritis.  Add cayenne to soup or orange juice for treating influenza to help increase the flow of mucus and relieve congestion.

For more information about cayenne, see your local herbal shop or health-food store: Apothecary Tinctura in Denver, Rebecca's Herbal Apothecary in Boulder or Vitamin Cottage.
