Cold & Flu Tea

DO NOT TAKE IT WITH ANY OVER THE COUNTER COLD MEDICINES! The ingredients have some of the same actions as cold medicines and could lead to an overdose or sickness. Also, check with your doctor before drinking if you are on any prescription medications.

Despite popular belief, herbal remedies are medicine and can interfere with other medicines. No herbal remedy should ever be used alone in treatment of a serious or life threatening illness.
