  • 4 tablespoons dried or 8 tablespoons fresh marshmallow root, roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon aniseed seeds
  • 1 teaspoon whole cloves

Put the marshmallow, aniseed, cloves, elderberries, liquorice, eucalyptus and orange into a saucepan with 2 1/8 cups water. Simmer until the liquid is reduced by one-fifth.
