Oregon Grape Root
SMILE Price: $2.99
Organic Eucalyptus Leaf
SMILE Price: $2.99

Elecampane helps rid the lungs of excess mucous. It provides relief when the respiratory system is exhausted from coughing and infection. It is most commonly used in cases of emphysema and bronchitis when the lungs are struggling with mucous.

Elecampane has a high essential oil content and therefore has a strong anti-bacterial effect. It soothes and heals damaged respiratory tissue and stimulates the respiratory system toward normal, healthy function.

It also helps with digestion and asthma.
Oregon Grape is commonly employed as an alternative to Goldenseal, due in part to their similar berberine content. Eucalyptus  leaves contain eucalyptol, a common flavoring ingredient in commercial mouthwash, cough drops and vaporizer fluids.
Pau D'Arco Bark
SMILE Price: $2.99
One of the best known, but least understood, herbs from the Amazonian rainforest, pau d'arco is a key ingredient in the tribal medicine chest. Licorice has been used in Eastern and Western herbal traditions to make coughs more productive and as a vitalizing herbal tonic. Elderflowers are often found in cold, flu, fever, and allergy
formulations. They are soothing and detoxifying, and they contain
antibiotic essential oil. They help break fevers and fight pathogens,
especially when combined with peppermint and yarrow. Elderflowers are
good for clearing the skin and a tea of elderflowers will help clear up
acne and other blemishes. Externally, elderflowers are very effective in
salves for inflammation, wounds, burns, cuts, abrasions, dry skin, and
acne.
Bayberry (Myrica cerifera) is a circulatory stimulant. It is warming and encourages "flow" throughout the body. It dissolves excess mucous and helps it pass from the body. Bayberry is often found in cough and cold formulas as it breaks up mucous and contains anti-microbial essential oils. It is excellent as a gargle for sore throats. As a mouthwash, it supports good oral hygiene.

Bayberry is an astringent herb, and it is helpful in cases of diarrhea and dysentery. It is also used for excessive menstrual bleeding and uterine discharge.
Eucalyptus Essential Oil. Eucalyptus globulus

Clearing, penetrating, invigorating. Powerful antimicrobial properties, an effective inhaler for colds and congestion. Blend in massage oils for a penetrating, camphorous effect, or use in cleaning products to disinfect surfaces.
Personality
Lively, lovely and delightful.

Herbal Power
Aromatic and sweetly minty, spearmint is widely used as a refreshing beverage.

Reason to Love
We like to think of spearmint as the fun-loving, slightly less intense cousin of peppermint. In fact, spearmint and peppermint are so closely related, and look so much alike, they're often confused for one another. Soft and sweet, with that characteristic minty zing, spearmint is so named because of its pointy, spear-like leaves. Milder than peppermint, it is still aromatic and refreshing. We love it for its distinctly spearminty, mildly sweet flavor.

Taste
Fragrant, sweet and minty.

Helps you sing it loud, say it proud, stand up and be heard.

Reason to Love
Slippery elm or Ulmus rubra (Latin for 'red elm,' so called for its lovely reddish bark) is a beautiful, native North American elm tree. It's the inner bark of this tree that is actually called 'slippery elm' due to its, yes, slippery, smooth, and slimy-in-a-good-way properties.
