Self-Care Cold Repair: Ginger Lemonade
January was a busy month even though I had less energy because I was sick. I had to stay motivated to take care of my family. This all natural Cold Remedy always lifts my spirits.
Take your time giving yourself the comfort of making a ginger, lemon, garlic and honey tea when you begin to feel that cold feeling beginning to attack. Try this traditional remedy also recommended by modern naturopaths: Ginger for soothing the throat, garlic for the immune system, lemon for vitamin C and boosting immune system, cinnamon for both deflammatory and immune system needs, honey for its antibacterial properties and for soothing the throats. Boiling the ginger, garlic, and cinnamon together gives you an infused tea that is then mixed with freshly squeezed lemon juice and honey for a tea. Adding 2 drops of food grade peppermint essential oil is also helpful. Pin the recipe below for the next time you can feel a cold starting.
