HOME REMEDY – all NATURAL ingredients! This Ginger Lemon Honey Herbal Tea contains the best things for you to fight a cold or flu naturally like:
℘ Lemon: High in vitamin C, which keeps the immune system strong and neutralizes the free radicals in your body. This reduced the inflammation and swelling.
℘ Ginger: Helps you sweat out the toxins in your body, which is helpful when you have a cold or flu. Ginger is also helpful for settling upset stomachs, dizziness, nausea, vomiting and cold sweats.
℘ Honey: Soothes a sore throat, making it an effective and natural cough suppressant. This improves the body’s ability to fight infection and decreases the risk of fevers. The natural sweetness of honey also balances the tartness of the lemon and the ginger’s spice, giving honey, lemon and ginger tea in its soothing flavor.
℘Why This Works: Drinking hot beverages will help loosen sinus secretions. Studies have indicated that those who drink warm beverages during cold get quick relief from cold symptoms like a runny nose, sore throat, and fatigue. Drinking green tea is advisable as it contains plenty of antioxidants that can speed up recovery.
℘ WHAT U WILL NEED:
Fresh Ginger 1 inch (washed & peeled)
1 fresh lemon
1 tsp Honey
℘ HOW TO MAKE IT:
1. First, you want to get yourself a chunk of fresh ginger.wash ginger thoroughly and peel it. I have used 1 inch of ginger root for this herbal tea recipe. Next chop ginger into 8 to 10 thin slices. It doesn’t have to be precise, but you want plenty of surface area to steep and as much of the nice juices released as possible. Drop slices of ginger in the mug/ bowl, and pour the rolling boiled /recently boiled water on top. The hotter the water is, the more nice gingery-ness you will have in your tea.
2. If you’re adding cinnamon stick, nutmeg, spices, actual tea, etc., add them to the bowl when you put in the ginger. Once you’ve added the water, let it sit for a few minutes, and you should get a lovely pale gold colored slightly cloudy tea. At this point, you can strain out the bits of ginger if you like, but I generally prefer to leave them in. (As long as you’ve peeled the ginger, everything should sit on the bottom of the mug so you can drink it without too much trouble.) Be aware though that it will continue to get stronger for quite a while as it sits with the bits of ginger.
3. Now add lemon juice and stir it well. Drink herbal tea warm for maximum health benefits and to fight flu, cold & cough !
