Natural Cold And Flu Elixir
This is the type of elixir you can sip on every single day! I like to make a big serving of this recipe and leave it in the fridge. Just bring it back to room temperature before drinking to make it easier for the body to assimilate, and to soothe a sore or congested throat.
Makes: 1 elixir
- 1 small knob ginger, finely sliced or grated
- ½ lemon, juiced
- 3 sprigs fresh thyme
- 1 leaf fresh sage
- 1 tsp raw organic honey
- 1½ cups boiling water
- Place all of the ingredients in a pot or large mug. Pour over the boiling water. Set aside to steep for 4-5 mins.
- Drink as is or strain and drink the hot liquid.
- Tip: This tea can be re-steeped up 3-4 times, so don't discard the ingredients!
