Fall is upon us and so is Cold and Flu Season.
Now this time of year doesn't have to be the scary time we all grew up knowing it to be, as we have access to such great information about how to build up our immune systems in addition to all the great things modern medicine is doing to try to prevent disease.
However, this is 2020 and unfortunately most of us are more scared about Cold and Flu Season then we are ready to admit. Never fear Breeze Botanicals is here to tell you all about Herbs For Fall. In this blog we will discuss immune defense and how important it can be to preemptively protect yourself.
We have two products that tend to fly off the shelves this time a year and this year is no different. Panacea Immune Defense Tea and Tincture come together to create a perfect combo of herbal immune support. Panacea was a goddess of healing by way of curative medicine in Greek mythology. Her name gives us the word panacea, which refers to a cure-all for disease. She was said to carry a magic potion, which she used to heal people with any illness at all.
The Immune Defense Tea is great for those blustery fall evenings. Say after you go to the pumpkin patch. The body needs both warming up and immune support. The herbal tea is great for preparing the body’s immune system for outside attacks. Herbs like hyssop and echinacea have been traditionally used by herbalists to help your body fight off bacteria and viruses, while also nourishing your immune system.
Now if you’re a busy human, as we find most people to be during 2020, who may not have all the time in the world to sip a cup of tea but are longing for some herbal support that's ok we have something for you too. Panacea Immune Defense Tincture is great because it too is blended with the same herbs as the tea to aid in preparing the body’s immune system for outside attacks.

Hyssop has been revered as a holy herb since the beginning of religious ceremonies, and has been recorded in the bible many times most notably stating, “Purge me with hyssop, and I will be clean”.
