Cold and flu season is upon us,
both hubby and I have been hit hard,
so the past few days we have been eating
nothing but soups.
Our favorite home remedy,
4 cups water
4-5 inch piece of thick fresh ginger root
1 cinnamon stick
1 star anise
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup honey
1 green tea bag or tsp green tea leaves
dash of cayenne pepper
bring to boil cover,shut off heat let sit for 20 minutes
strain into a thermos
and sip thru-out the day
it sure helps,
Did you know that,
Antibiotics are not prescribed for colds and flu
because they are viral. Antibiotics only kill bacteria.
Do you have a home remedy to share?
I sure would appreciate it.
Have a blessed day,
Lady of the Mote
