Product Details

Echinacea, commonly referred to as "coneflower," is a genus of nine different herbaceous plants native to North America. The two primary species used in herbal preparations are E. Angustifolia and E. Purpurea, which are often used interchangeably. It's one of the most widely used plants in herbalism, and Native Americans relied extensively upon it. Once widely spread, over-harvesting has greatly reduced wild populations and it's most commonly found now in cultivation.

Echinacea Purpurea Herb is a versatile ingredient that can be used to make hot tea or other hot beverages. It is easy to prepare and abundantly available. It blends perfectly with lemongrass, especially in teas and soups. Frontier Co-op Echinacea Purpurea Herb is mildly minty. This herb is most effective when added to teas. It delivers a tongue-tingling sensation.

To prepare as a tea, pour 8 oz. boiling water over 1 tsp. of herb. Cover and steep 3-5 minutes, strain and serve immediately.
