How Our 'BREATHE' Tisane Ingredients Can Ease Sinus Congestion

  • Echinacea is widely used as an immune stimulant to counter both bacterial and viral infections.
  • Elderflower is known to reduce fevers and tone the linings of the nose and throat, increasing their resistance to infection.
  • Marshmallow is soothing and protects the mucous membranes. Its demulcent quality also relieves dry coughs and bronchial catarrh.
  • Nettle is cleansing, detoxifying and has anti-allergenic properties.
  • Blueberries (freeze dried to preserve as many nutrients as possible) are superfruits, packed with antioxidants and vitamins.

Ingredients: Blueberries, elderflowers, echincea, nettle, marshmallow leaf.

Suitable for vegans. Gluten free.

Packaging is made from renewable resources.


Infuse a heaped teaspoon of the tisane to hot (just off boiling) water using an infuser, a teapot and strainer, or a cafetiere and your favourite mug. Let the tisane infuse for 5-10 minutes, then strain and sip. Drink up to 3 cups a day. View our range of infusers here.

*Holly's Tip* Add a squeeze of lemon juice to this tisane. The dark purple colour turns to a lovely pink and you're getting vitamin C!

Long lasting or recurring sinus problems can be a sign of a more serious health issue. If you are concerned speak to your GP.

The Science

Viral and bacterial infections cause immune system reactions, in which an important role is played by the lymphatic system. Part of the lymphatic system involves the mucous membranes, such as those in the sinuses. Mucus is an essential substance synthesised and used by the body; it protects and hydrates the body’s tissue, it traps bacteria and allergens before they have the chance to infect the body and it even contains antibodies to destroy invaders.

So, if the lymphatic system and the mucous membranes are not functioning as they should be, the reaction to infection will be more severe and will take longer to recover from. Especially during cold and flu season, these systems can become congested and overwhelmed and they need a little help.

You can support your immune system in three ways:

  1.  By using mucilaginous herbs, such as marshmallow leaf. Mucilaginous herbs tone and support the mucus membranes, keeping them hydrated and slippery, ensuring microbes are swept away and destroyed before they can make you as ill. A more effective immune system response means quicker relief for sore sinuses.
  2. By rebalancing your proteins. Sinus congestion is caused by an imbalance of proteins in the mucous membranes, making them less effective. Tannins, such as those in Echinacea leaf, bind to used or excess proteins and remove them, restoring fluidity and the ability to flush away invading microbes.
  3. By staying hydrated. It may only be a cup but every bit of water you drink helps to keep your body and its systems hydrated, making everything work more effectively.

    Bursting with blueberry flavour

    Posted by Suzette McKenzie on 10th Jul 2020

    This light, floral herbal infusion was my absolute favourite because it was bursting with blueberry flavour and it looks stunning. Blueberries are my super fruit and they are packed with antioxidants and vitamins. As a lover of elderflower drinks I think it always help me with nose and throat infections. Combined with Nettle which is known for cleansing, marshmallow leaf which soothes & protects and the well known immune stimulant, my favourite Echinacea and hey presto I would fully recommend this fusion of taste! Highly Recommend! Easy to make, fun to drink and suitable for vegans.
    Used as part of my awareness for #PlasticFreeJuly.

    Great for start of a cough/cold

    Posted by Athena on 1st Aug 2017

    I drank Breathe a few times a day at the start of a cold. It helped relieve the congestion symptoms and the cold didn't progress to anything worse. Definitely one to keep in the cupboard!

    It actually works!

    Posted by Colin on 24th Jan 2017

    What a great product! I was ill with a bad cold last week, my nose was all blocked up, my throat was really sore and I felt dreadful. I alternated between Breathe (which really did ease the sinus congestion) and Soothe (which helped the sore throat). Really impressed, will definitely keep in the house for any future patients! :)
