From Dena Place of Good Shepherd Herbals:
Cold and flu season is upon us! It’s time to stock our medicinal cabinet with a few cold and flu helps:

Elderberry Syrup ~ Elderberries have antiviral and immune stimulating properties. The berries are useful for most all upper respiratory complaints (particularly sinus irritation) caused by colds, influenza and other viral respiratory disorders.

Breathe Easy Tea ~ Licorice Root- the demulcent actions heals mucus membranes, especially in the lungs. Peppermint Leaf- excellent for the sinuses. Mullein- a mild expectorant, soothing to irritated mucus membranes. Elecampane- known primarily as an antiseptic expectorant especially for bronchitis and pneumonia. Ginger Root- useful for colds; cough, lungs and sinuses.

Throat Tonic ~ Both Licorice Root and Marshmallow Root are soothing to the mucus membranes in the throat. Wild Cherry Bark – pain caused by a red, inflamed throat may be alleviated with its use. It is also known for its bronchial antispasmodic action making it useful for coughing associated with bronchitis, chest colds and pneumonia. Slippery Elm- healing and strengthening, soothing for a scratchy throat. Fennel Seed – useful for sore throat and immune support.

CHANGE IN MILK PRICES
We are so fortunate to have the excellent milk from Cedar Rock Dairy and Sam has done his best to serve our needs. Just like everything else, feed prices continue to increase and Sam has experienced 2 increases since he started with the Market. This last one was significant enough that he has no choice but to increase the price of milk. Effective immediately, milk will increase $0.50 per container.

GREEN PASTURE If you placed an order with me for Green Pasture products, they are in. I will have all the orders at the market on Saturday. Please plan to pay for your items when you come to pick up.

Thank you so much for your support and I look forward to seeing you soon.
