Make this cold-fighting super tea when you’re feeling yucky.

posted in: Herbalism | 1

My throat has been SO SORE and dry lately, which bites, but on the plus side it's been pretty encouraging to me to drink more water. ‘Tis the season, so I know I'm not the only one fighting a scratchy throat right now.

While you can definitely get the flu or a cold any time of year, there's no question that they spike this time of year - so what can we do about it? Here's my favorite herbal cold and flu season tea along with some other health tips for the months ahead.
You too? Make this!
Cold fighting super tea!
 
Start some water boiling on the stove while you grate about 1 teaspoon of ginger. Put it in a tea ball or straight into a mug if that's your thing. Add another teaspoon of honey (I like it sweet, what?) and a squirt of lemon. Pour in hot water when it's ready and let it steep for a few minutes. Enjoy the sweet, gingery goodness.
It's also fun to make a big batch of this, put it in a thermos, hand your children off to some kind soul and retreat to bed for the day.

    I had been hanging out with a friend with strep. Once I felt a sore throat come along with a slightly runny nose I ate garlic and onions (natural antibiotics) in every meal with lots of rest (10 hours) so I could stay lightly productive at work (I do research for a few universities from home or the lab). It passed in 2 days with only a slight tingle in the throat and I coughed maybe 3 times. Saved a trip to the doctor and to pay for a prescription antibiotic. Preventative natural methods for the win! Roommate didn’t get sick either 🙂
