Cure for your Cold? (Ginger Tea)

A guest post by Juliette Britton
Ginger Tea!

It may not completely cure your cold, but it will definitely help soothe a sore throat.  At the first signs of a cold, I drink 1 to 2 ginger teas per day, and I find my symptoms subside quickly. Since it is caffeine free- it safe for most children 2 years and older (you just need a little less ginger- and maybe more honey)!

This is what you need:

12 oz of hot water

1/2 to 1 T honey

1-2 T grated ginger (1 to 2 teaspoons for children)

 

Hope you stay healthy during this cold/flu season!

Ginger tip: you can use bottled ginger, but I prefer the taste of natural ginger root.  Ginger root stores well in the freezer.  Prior to freezing, break the ginger into 2 inch pieces and place in an airtight bag.
