Yarrow Tea
Lawrence Dillard
Yarrow Tea is a good remedy for severe colds, being most useful in the
commencement of fevers, and in cases of obstructed perspiration. The infusion
is made with 1 OZ. of dried herb to 1 pint of boiling water, drunk warm, in
wineglassful doses. It may be sweetened with sugar, honey or treacle, adding a
little Cayenne Pepper, and to each dose a teaspoonful of Composition Essence.

It opens the pores freely and purifies the blood, and is recommended in the
early stages of children's colds, and in measles and other eruptive diseases.
