Ginger-lemon-honey tea

Let's be honest, the common cold it is one big pain in the neck (literally).  It's nagging, lingering and just not fun to have around.  It stops activities, school, work and from just plain having fun. 

Thankfully I came upon a homeopathic recipe for a honey, lemon and ginger tea.  It's full of Vitamin C from the lemon,  antibacterial properties from the ginger and the honey helps soothe your throat.

Via Weelicious

Makes 2 servings

1 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled
juice of 1 lemon
1 to 2 tablespoons of honey, or to taste (I used 1 tbsp.)

Cut the ginger into several thin disks

Bring 2 cups of water and the ginger to a coil in a small saucepan over medium heat.  Cover and reduce the heat to low, and cook for 5 to 10 minutes

Remove the ginger from the water, add the lemon juice and honey, and stir to dissolve the honey.

Cool as needed for young children then serve tea mugs.

  Wishing you well!
