Cold Season Remedies

Location – Avebury Village & World Heritage Site

Summer time is the best time to prepare to get through the winter. The herbs that have traditionally been used to treat earache, sinus infections, colds, influenza, coughs, chest infections, chilblains, sore throats, bronchitis, pleurisy and many more complaints are abundant now and become difficult to obtain from the wild in the winter months when they are needed the most.
