I have really enjoyed the process of making my own tea to both deal with symptoms of colds and prevent future colds. By mixing and matching the following ingredients I am able to create a perfect tea for whatever the cold season brings! Just add your ingredients of choice to a small saucepan and simmer.I prefer to add certain ingredients such as the vanilla and honey at the end. Strain into a mug and enjoy!
A note about honey: Honey loses many of its medicinal benefits at 104F.
|Ginger||Anti-inflammatory/Boosts immunity/Loosens congestion|
|Honey||Boosts immunity/ Loosens congestion|
|Bay Leaves||Boosts immunity|
|Lemon||Boosts immunity/ Loosens congestion|
|Apple Cider Vinegar||Boosts immunity/ Loosens congestion|
Each ingredient is linked to an external site that provides additional information on each ingredient. I am still working on learning more about the benefits of each ingredient and will update each link as I find sites that provide better, well researched information.
