Anyone used garlic or catnip tea for fever reduction?

I read that both can be given as a enema to reduce fevers.

Very holistic here. Hate meds and prefer natural/herbal remedies.

I don't know about the herbal enemas for fever reduction but There's a gypsy fever remedy with equal parts yarrow flowers, pepper mint and elder flowers that brings down the fever.

I have never used these teas for enemas, since I don't have a colon anymore (haven't had one since I was little, due to congenital bowel dysmotility). But, I have used catnip tea for stomachaches. It works very, very well for this, especially if you or your child has acid reflux and can't drink peppermint tea.
