Daily herb tip: yarrow for fever

Yarrow, a diaphoretic (induces sweating) and antipyretic (reduces/prevents fever), is helpful for treating colds, flus, and fevers -- an herbal tea made with yarrow, lemon balm, mint, and elder flowers will induce sweating and help bring down a fever.

Always consult a professional herbalist before using any herbs. For more information about yarrow, see your local herbal shop:  Apothecary Tinctura in Denver, Rebecca's Herbal Apothecary in Boulder.
