Cough Tea - Organic

Herbal Mixes: Cough Tea

Contains Naturally Caffeine Free: Red Clover tops Licorice root and Ginger root

From our Experience:

Red clover is one of history's most popular herbs. Farmers plant it for a cover crop and mix it into their hay crops to increase the protein content of their animal feed. Due to its high nutritional content, red clover is the base for many tinctures. Many health-conscious people add a little red clover to their salads. If you pick your clover from your own property, make sure the dog and cat haven't passed that way recently.

Not recommended to use during pregnancy.

Cough tea tincture
by Dallas on Nov 28, 2014

Is it ok to make a cough tea tincture???

    Re: Cough tea tincture
    by Bulk Herb Store on Dec 3, 2014

    Most definitely! You could definitely make this into a tincture, however I would recommend using a glycerine tincture as a vodka tincture may be irritating to a sore throat. Thanks!

Amounts of herbs?
by Martha on Mar 24, 2014

I have had your cough tea, and found it very helpful! I have the herbs that are in the mix. Could you tell me how much of each are in your cough tea? Equal amounts?

    Re: Amounts of herbs?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Mar 25, 2014

    Hello, unfortunately we are unable to share the recipes of any mix we currently sell, however we do provide our customers with the ingredient list so that you can experiment with the ratios yourself. Thanks!

Cough Tea
by Anonymous on Jan 25, 2014

I don't know how it does it, but this tea REALLY WORKS! It breaks that gunk up and eases the coughing at night. I had a bad cough from the respiratory flu. When my daughter reminded me about the tea (we store it in the freezer, so it had slipped my mind), I used it and had much relief quickly! i highly recommend having it on hand.

by Michelle W. on Jan 23, 2014

I made this into a tincture. What would be the dosing on this? P.S. we drink this as a strong tea and my kids and husband love it! Thanks for the great mix!

    Re: dosage
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jan 31, 2014

    Hello, unfortunately we cannot give dosage amounts because we do not know you and your family and each herb is going to be different for every person. Thanks!

Cough tea for trying to conceive
by Poorni on Jan 9, 2014


Can I use this tea for trying to conceive?


    Re: Cough tea for trying to conceive
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jan 15, 2014

    Hello, I wouldn't recommend using this but perhaps you could try our Berry Herbal Brew or the Red Raspberry as those are more helpful with fertility. Thanks!

cough tea
by Susie on Jan 2, 2014

is cough tea safe to drink while pregnant ?

    Re: cough tea
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jan 3, 2014

    Hello, we don't recommend drinking this tea while pregnant because the Red Clover may cause rises in estrogen which can be harmful to your baby. Thanks!

Cough Tea!
by Christena on Dec 31, 2013

Our family has been sick with the flu. I just realized I had a bag of the cough tea! I looked at all the reviews and I can't wait to try it. I have 10 children so I am brewing a full coffee pot of this cough tea!

Cough Tea during breast feeding?
by Sherryl on Dec 27, 2013

Hi, I mixed some of this tea with my elderberry syrup brew when I made it. I know elderberry is safe to use while breast feeding, can I use the cough tea when breast feeding as well? Thanks!

    Re: Cough Tea during breast feeding?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Dec 30, 2013

    Hello, yes the Cough Tea should be fine in moderation. Just use with caution as licorice may cause a rise in estrogen and I'm not sure what that would do to your milk. Thanks!

Honey and lemon
by Sarah on Dec 13, 2013

I know I can add honey. But can I add a little lemon?

    Re: Honey and lemon
    by Bulk Herb Store on Dec 16, 2013

    Yes you could lemon! I'm sure that would be yummy! Thanks!

Safe while breastfeeding?
by Diana on Nov 18, 2013

We are late in the game as my family already has a bad cold and I am completely unprepared - but I want to be ready for the inevitable next time! Would this (in your non-medical, purely friendly advice opinion) be safe to take as a tincture while nursing? Thank you!

    Re: Safe while breastfeeding?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Nov 19, 2013

    Hello! Thank you for your question. We would not recommend using the Cough Tea while breastfeeding as it does have Licorice root in it and Licorice can cause water retention, and may interfere with your milk supply. However we would recommend the Double E Immune Booster Tea as a safe alternative. Thanks!

Wild cherry bark/mullin
by Sara on Nov 8, 2013

I have a child who tends to get respiratory issues with almost every cold, so Im looking for something to help with that. I know wild cherry bark and mullin are also good for coughs/asthma so I was wondering if it would be worth wild to add these to the mix to add extra power to it? I would be making a tincture with them.

    Re: Wild cherry bark/mullin
    by Bulk Herb Store on Nov 12, 2013

    Yes, you can add mullein and wild cherry bark to your tincture. Mullein is great for relieving mucus from your chest and Wild cherry bark is soothing for your throat!

Cough Tea for asthma
by Alicja on Feb 25, 2013

I have asthma and often get miserable when having a cold. Last time I ended with real trouble breathing at night, and since I just have gotten my order with the Tincture Mix Kit I thought I'd give it a try. All next day I kept drinking ImLife Tincture prepared as tea, but in the evening I still could feel my congestion was getting worse and worse. I must say that I was very skeptical that the Cough Tea with its simple ingredients would bring any significant results... However, at bedtime I felt that another asthma attack was approaching and in act of desperation I made myself a cup of strong Cough Tea. Then... I forgot about my troubled breathing till I realized it was not that bad anymore! The result was stunning! So I promised myself to keep drinking the Cough Tea and ImLife Tea daily, hoping they will help my breathing in general.
I also read somewhere here about adding Mullein Leaf to the Cough Tea. I read about the herb and it sound like a good idea. Any reason not to combine the two?

    Re: Cough Tea for asthma
    by Bulk Herb Store on Apr 19, 2013

    I would suggest just adding a tsp of Mullien to your cough tea if you feel your breathing is getting bad. I would not take it all the time though because it is possible that it could give you diarrhea if you take to much.

Cough Syrup
by Elizabeth Entenmann on Feb 4, 2013

I used your Cough Tea and I made a tincture out of it, using the steps as a normal alcohol tincture. Once that was poured off, and mixed that with some local raw honey. It's been an excellent cough suppresent for my husband and I. Two teaspoons will do.

Great for the flu
by Bonnie on Dec 30, 2012

I used this to help get over the cough from pneumonia and the flu. It really works especially with 2 T. of raw organic honey in the mix. I have been handing it out to all my family as they are sick with lung ailments and it really works wonders. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Keep it on hand!

This tea is fantastic!
by Heather on Dec 26, 2012

My family has been struggling with head colds and congestion, as well as hacking coughs for over a week. I have had a tough time sleeping because of this cold, and now, after sipping two cups of this tea, find that my cough is productive, I dont have that tickle in the back of my throat, and my whole chest feels more relaxed. thank you SO SO much for making this available---I am recommending you on my blog, The Welcoming House, and my FB page of the same name! Blessings to you and yours!

Helped during a flu bout
by Sharon on Dec 12, 2012

Our order of herbs came just in time for a bout with the flu. I mixed up a pitcher and had our kids drink it and they were able to sleep through the night with only a few episodes of coughing.
One plus with herbs is you can give more when needed usually while with over the counter meds or prescriptions you have to wait hours for the next dose while your child suffers. Thank yu for making mixtures that work and even taste good!

so thankful for this product!
by Tiffany on Oct 8, 2012

With winter fast approaching, I decided to use some of my cough tea to make a tincture. I had my first opportunity to try it out this past weekend. My 6 year old woke us up at 1 am coughing so hard that he was gagging; it was one of those raspy "frog" coughs. I gave him some of the tincture and steamed him in the bathroom. He went back to bed and did not cough for the rest of the night. He slept peacefully until the next morning! I've given him some before bedtime until his cold clears up, and the tincture has kept the coughing to a minimum. Thank you for a wonderful product that I can give my child, knowing that it isn't full of chemicals or other drugs that may be harmful.
As a side note, I also gave some to my dad who is a smoker. His cough is horrible. While the tincture won't cure his cough entirely (only quitting smoking will do that!!), the tincture has lessened the severity of his chronic cough.

Best Tea for Cough
by Ratzlaffs on Jun 7, 2012

My hubby has had this tickle in his throat and a dry cough for a while now. He tried your cough tea that we had bought a while back and has been stored in the refrigerator. He has been drinking this tea and he said of all the herbs he has taken for different things he thought that this has helped him more than any other herbs.
Thanks for bringing quality products to families that are wanting to go the natural route.

whooping cough
by Anna on Jun 4, 2012

All three of my kids had whooping cough. I had some tincture made with this and the first child that had it recovered so quickly, but used up all my tincture. The other two kids struggle through it until my second batch of tincture was ready to use. Once the tincture was ready my five month old who struggled badly for two whole weeks suddenly recovered after two days on the tincture. The whole time the tincture was being made, I tried to give him a strong infusion with tea but it seemed to do nothing. SO, I think the key to this being a remedy for whooping cough is to make it into a strong tincture. I used half vodka and half glycerin. I put it in the blender to speed up the process. It should set for at least two weeks.

by J. Kite on Oct 11, 2010

This tea has been a life saver for our seasonal allergies. It opened up our sinus congestion and relieved our sore throats. Thank you.

Relieves Whooping Cough
by Mrs. K. Campbell on Feb 18, 2010

Our children came down with pertussis recently. The Cough Tea was WONDERFUL in helping to relieve the congestion, inflammation, and
spasmodic coughing. I have QUICKLY gone through my first order and am ordering another pound and a half to help see us through this. The
children love the taste and ask for it often. I make it like you would iced tea and they drink it throughout the day. THANK YOU for offering
this mixture.

PS: In several of my herb books red clover is highly recommended for whooping cough.

From our Mailbox

I am addicted to your store! In looking for a good quality loose leaf tea for pregnancy I discovered the Mama's Red Raspberry Brew, picked up Dr. Cinnamon for my husband who is pre-diabetic and the Sleep Tight Tea for his insomnia. Then I came back for the Mama's Milk Tea and picked up the Baby Bath while I was at it. I just sent the New Mama and Baby Kit to an expecting mother and she loved it! The latest newsletter has now tempted me with your tincture kit - I have been searching for remedies for my toddler who has started daycare and is now often sick. I discover something new every time I come to your website. Great stuff that I will definitely recommend!!
