The lymphatic system is a drainage network of fluid, organs and vessels that is responsible for the removal of cellular waste and foreign agents such as bacteria, viruses, toxins etc. The lymph is the fluid that circulates throughout the lymphatic system.  The lymph moves through the lymph nodes, where they are destroyed.

I’ve shared with you in the past natural ways to cleanse your lymphatic system, and one of them was using herbs. The herbs in this lymph cleansing infusion are famous for their excellent effect on the lymphatic system, and if you consume this lymph cleansing infusion regularly, it will help to ensure proper lymphatic drainage.

Calendula – the most common uses of calendula flowers are for wound healing, reducing skin inflammation, clearing the lymphatic glands and as a general immune tonic.

Cleavers – this herb stimulates the activity of the lymphatic system and organs so they can perform at their best. It helps in cases of lymphatic congestion and swollen lymph glands, and it also helps to cleanse and nourish the blood.

Mullein – this herb treats lymph congestion. The leaves and flowers activate lymph circulation and can be useful for swollen glands, especially when lymph nodes in the throat, neck, arms, and groin swell or are congested.

Lymph Cleansing Herbal Infusion Recipe

2 parts calendula
2 parts cleavers
1 part mullein

Place the herbs in a small saucepan and cover with cold water. Heat slowly and simmer, covered for 20-45 minutes. The longer you simmer the herbs, the stronger the tea will be. Drink 2-3 cups a day for 2 to 3 weeks.

  7. kim s says:

    when you say parts…. to be steeped… exactly what is the measurement of these parts? teaspoon, tablespoon, 1/4 cup? and how much water are you using?


    • Jenny says:

      Hi Kim, you can choose the measurement (part) according to the amount of infusion that you want to create. Also the more water you add, the less concentrated the infusion will be – It is a flexible recipe. You can start by using 1/2 teaspoon as your measurement (part), so you will have 1 tsp calendula, 1 tsp of cleavers and 1/2 tsp of mullein and cover with 2 cups of water, but again, it can be flexible according to your own preference.

    Will this tea interfere with prescription medication like synthroid?

    • Jenny says:

      I don’t really know (I’m not a doctor). Best to check with your doctor to be on the safe side of things.

  9. a'ndrea says:

    Hi. Is ti mullein leaf or flower? Does it matter? Thanks.

    • Jenny says:

      Both flower and leaf can be used. An infused oil of mullein flowers is a common remedy for treating an ear infection due to the anti inflammatory and antiseptic properties of the flowers. The leaves are commonly used to treat congestion and dry coughs, as they are an excellent expectorant. Few people know, however, that mullein is also an excellent remedy for the lymphatic system, and in this case, both flower and leaf can be used. Even the root can be used as it is anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic and expectorant.
