Comments

You can also use thyme leaves together with echinacea , instead of using 50 g of echinacea roots , you can use, for example, 10 g of thyme leaves and 40 g of echinacea root But add the thyme immediately before the filtration step (read in Preparation ), that is, before preparing the syrup itself, simply make the thyme tea by boiling it for a maximum of 3 minutes.
