Coping with a urinary tract infection can be difficult. However this special blend can help to soothe and alleviate the symptoms.

  2. Licorice Root: Adds a flavor perk to the tea. It's naturally sweet in taste, it is good for soothing mucous membranes and coating inflammed tissue.
  3. Chamomile: This is also added for taste, but with taste it is also complimented by its many healing benefits. It's a antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic (pain relieving), antibacterial against strep strains, antiseptic, and antifungal.
