DIY cold & flu remedy

This is the second year we have used this flu remedy and it works really well for us. You can also use it outside of winter by adding a teaspoon to your regular cup of tea. I encourage you to use this remedy as each ingredient has multiple health proprieties.

GINGER

Highly effective against nausea
Anti-inflammatory properties
Can lower blood sugar
Treats indigestion
Reduces menstrual pain

LEMON

Aids indigestion and constipation
Helps with dental care: massaging the juice on the gums can stop gum bleeding
Hair care: applying the juice on the scalp can get rid of dandruff and hair loss
Helps reduce weight
Eases the pain of sunburn
Stimulates the metabolism

HONEY

Heals wounds and burns
Can treat seasonal allergies
Fights infections
Cold relief

Ingredients

1 organic lemon (because we use the skin as well)
3cm of peeled ginger
2-3 tablespoons of honey
A small jar with a lid

Wash the lemon and cut it into small slices. Peel the ginger and slice it as well. Add them both to a jar and add the honey.

In a few days, this mixture will be runnier, because of the juice from the lemon. Add 1 teaspoon of the flu remedy to your tea (chunks of lemon and ginger to your tea plus the liquid mixture), or add 2 teaspoons to make a tea out of this.
