The Holistic Tree's Natural Cold & Flu Elixer
Have you caught the terrible flu and or colds that have been going around this winter? You will want to check this out! This is definitely not a new recipe, rather it is a classic that has been around for a long time! It has lasted the test of time because it is soothing, healing and natural.
When you feel a cold coming on, or you are full blown under the weather, you can mix this up easily and feel better instantly (thanks to the soothing properties of the honey on that sore throat!). It is also great for prevention if someone in your home or workspace is sick, and tastes delicious added to your favourite tea. Three ingredients: raw honey, lemon, & ginger. Add all three to a mason jar, 1st lemon and ginger, then fill the remaining space with honey. The honey, lemon and ginger are antibacterial, and the honey contains enzymes to help fight infection and soothe a sore throat. You can add a spoonful to warm water or tea, or just take a spoonful. You can take this up a healing notch by adding 2 drops of doTERRA lemon essential oil for a major antibacterial boost and to soothe the throat. This will keep in the fridge for up to two weeks. Get well and feel better soon xo the holistic tree :)
