Dandelion herb – A mild diuretic so use it if you’re premenstrual, have fluid retention or bloating. Blend dandelion with Echinacea for an upset tum.

Liquorice – A tonic to build energy levels and boost immunity. Take when you’re running on empty for a real boost! Good for chest problems too.

Echinacea – Helps to prevent colds and flu so take when your immunity is low and blend with liquorice for cold with an infection.
