Originally uploaded by AquarianBath

I took this picture at my Cold and Flu Class at Maggie's Herb Farm in St. Augustine this weekend.

This is a small selection of the herbs available at the farm which are useful for colds and cough.

Back:

Garden Thyme: for cough, bronchitis, whooping cough, inflamed sinuses, bloating

Clockwise:

Tilo: for cough and sore throat

Vick's Salve plant: a succulent herb that can be used fresh to make a steam treatment for chest and sinus congestion.

Horehound: A very bitter herb used for making horehound candy cough drops.
