It can be used to loosen and lessen mucous as well as to treat fevers and cramps. The essential oil is used as an ingredient in cosmetics and perfumes and is known for its antibacterial properties.

Herbal teas with light, delicate blossoms or leaves require somewhat shorter steeping times and lower temperatures than other more hearty herbs. We recommend using 2 teaspoons of leaf per 8oz of near boiling water (180 to 200 F) and steeping 3 to 5 minutes. This provides a sweeter, better tasting brew while repeated infusions allow you to extract all the nutritional and medicinal benefits from the herb.
Herbal teas can be brewed in porcelain, ceramic, glass, or stainless steel but never in aluminum or other harmful materials. Be sure to cover the cup or teapot while steeping to prevent the loss of fragrant essential oils and other therapeutic and nutritional elements.
