It is the first day of winter. This is also known as the winter Solstice, where there will be the least amount of daylight / sunlight on this day. In many parts of the world, there is sun, in other parts it is cold, with wintry weather. Today I thought to share a herbal cold remedy, since I have been thinking about health lately. I don't keep pain killers, or traditional cold / cough medicine at home. I think that the best remedy for a cold or a cough is lots of rest, fluids, and the following Ginger, Honey and lemon remedy.
Ginger, Honey, & Lemon Remedy
4 Cups of water I chunk of raw ginger peeled 1-2 teaspoons lemon Honey as preferred
In a pot boil the water with the ginger Boil for about 5 minutes, until the water turns slightly yellow Pour the water in a cup Add a teaspoon of honey Add some drops of lemon Drink / sip while hot
During throughout the day at least four times a day. There will be enough water boiled for four cups. Just heat up the water the next time you are ready to drink this during the day.
This remedy is really easy, i have found that it works, the trick is to make sure that you drink this more than once during the day. Also it is also a good alternative to tea or coffee if you are making a drink for a traveling mug in the winter as well.
Enjoy! Be well! Happy First Day Of Winter! :)
There are still warm hearted people, in this cold world. - quote
