Weleda Organic Cough Elixir. Soothing and expectorant for the relief of wet and dry coughs. Helps to relax and soothe the throat and chest, decrease mucous formation and aid expectoration.

The key ingredients include althaea, pimpinella, drosera and homeopathic ipecacuanha: help soothe irritated mucous membranes in the throat and chest by reducing inflammation and relaxing constricted muscles. Plantago, thymus and marrubium: help to break up and eliminate mucous. This cough elixir is mixed with warm water, and sipped on. Ideal for children.
Cough Elixir is not a cough suppressant. The cough is a protective mechanism for clearing breathing passages, which we do not try to suppress. The herbs Althaea (Marshmallow root), Pimpinella (Aniseed), Drosera (the Sundew), and homoeopathic Ipecacuanha act together to help soothe irritated mucous membranes in the throat and chest, by reducing inflammation and relaxing constricted muscles. Plantago (Plaintain), Thymus (Thyme) and Marrubium (Horehound) are expectorants, helping to break up and eliminate mucous. Inula (Elecampane) helps relieve chest congestion. Weleda Cough Elixir is manufactured using traditional herbal methods over three days. The dried herbs are soaked overnight, and then boiled as a decoction. Raw sugar and malt are added to produce a syrup, and upon cooling the homoeopathic liquids are added. After filtering, it is bottled and pasteurised. The raw sugar softens the herbal taste and acts as a preservative.
