Colts Foot    Tussilago Farfara

For thousands of years Coltsfoot Leaf has been used as an ancient cough medicine, suppressing coughs from colds and illness via a wide array of treatments. It was even used in smoking blends as a method to ease breathing. For ages it was recommended for dry coughs and breathing problems, with attention paid to these properties in the writings of the Greek doctor Diosocrites. There was some debate however between East and West as to what portion of the Coltsfoot plant was the most useful medicinally. In China, the thought was that the root was most potent and most beneficial, while in Europe it was generally believed that the leaf provided the greatest benefit.

Today, it is still popular in suppressing coughs, with research showing that extracts from the leaf can improve the immune system, as well. Modern research has also shown that it should not be taken by pregnant women or given to children under the age of six.

Coltsfoot flowers, leaves and even the buds are used as ba tea or often smoked alone by blending it with other herbs to treat coughs and chest problems.
