Our Sinus Liquid Extract Combination has been a wonderfully popular herbal aid for our customers, particularly those living in St. Louis, who suffer allergies that affect the nasal passages and the airways. But this combination may also be used for other conditions of the respiratory system.
The seven herbs in the Sinus Liquid Extract Combination are:
Marshmallow Root - is not only soothing to mucus membranes, but can help relieve congestion and hardened mucus.
Elder Flower - helps with congestion, thick nasal mucus, restricted breathing, coughs, fever, colds, sore throat, and sinusitis.
Lavender Flower - helps relieve congestion, coughs, fever, and colds.
Mullein Leaf & Flower - is beneficial when we suffer allergies and sinusitis, soothing dry tissue and relieving ticklish coughs. May be used for croup, pneumonia, pleurisy, asthma, and emphysema.
Thyme Leaf - is antimicrobial and helps move stuck mucus. May be used for sore throat, laryngitis, tonsillitis, colds, bronchitis, shortness of breath, and emphysema. Very useful for helping to manage postnasal drip and perpetual clearing of the throat.
Peppermint Leaf - is an herb that opens us up, improving our breathing.
Rosemary Leaf - also helps open us up by allowing for expectoration and removing mucus buildup. Beneficial for sinusitis, bronchitis, and asthma.
Overall, this product, as with any other of our liquid extract combinations, is a synergy offering more to us than any one of the individual herbs in it can offer, thereby helping to decongest, break up and thin mucus, ease troubled breathing, soothe and moisten irritated membranes, and relieve stuffiness, coughs, and soreness.
When we're suffering allergies, particularly those caused by airborne allergens, we might also want to enlist the aid of Eyebright Herb to ease any accompanying eye discomfort such as redness, itching, and tearing. Nettle Leaf or Ginkgo Leaf can be used as an antihistamine. If we assume our immune system is over-stimulated by certain allergens, we might want to consider the daily use of an immune-normalizing herb such as Lapacho Bark, Echinacea Angustifolia Root (5 - 10 drops of liquid extract daily) or Astragalus Root.

Use 5 - 15 drops, 1 - 2 dropperfuls, or as much as a teaspoon at a time. Dose frequency could be 1 - 3 times or several times a day as desired. Generally best to use large, frequent doses in acute situations. When more comfort is achieved or the situation is less severe, doses can be smaller and less frequent. Dose recommendations are for adults. For a child, adjust the dose according to weight. For example, if a child weighs approximately half what an adult weighs, give half of any of the above dose suggestions.
