Ginger, Lemon and Honey Cold/Flu Remedy

Here in Spain has started raining a lot, and it’s cold. This makes me just curl in my bed and not get out. I hate cold and winter altogether. I hate that I have to put on me more layers of clothes and I have to wear thicker socks.

What I like about winter, is that I don’t get a cold, like at all. The last time I had a cold was in 2009, with fever and runny nose. And I’m glad about that. 🙂Ginger, Lemon and Honey Cold/Flu RemedyThis is the second year that I do this Ginger, Lemon and Honey flu remedy. And it works really good for us. It’s not necessary just for the winter, you can drink tea in summer as well, and put a teaspoon of this mixture in your tea. It will do only good to your body.

When you make this mixture, you have two options:

  • you can add 1 teaspoon of this into your tea
  • you can add 2 teaspoons to boiling water and make tea from this (ginger, honey, and lemon tea)

I encourage you to make this flu remedy because it has a lot of health proprieties.

GINGER:

  • it’s highly effective against nausea
  • it has anti-inflammatory effects
  • it can lower blood sugar
  • treats indigestion
  • reduces menstrual pain

LEMON:

  • helps with 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

HONEY:

  • heals wounds and burns
  • can treat seasonal allergies
  • fights infections
  • cold relief

As you can see, all the 3 ingredients that we’ll use today, have a lot of benefits for our health, so make sure to use them often in your diet.

Ingredients:

  • 1 organic lemon (because we use the skin as well)
  • 3 cm 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 as well.

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, or add 2 teaspoons to make a tea out of this.Ginger, Lemon and Honey Cold/Flu Remedy
