Cold Remedy Tea with Turmeric Ginger Honey Citrus Honeysuckle
As the weather turns colder I am more proneto getting sick with a bad cold or flu. So I often make this Honey Citron Turmeric Teato help me feel better. It tastes so much better than the drugstore cough syrup andit really works! I'll explain how but in the meantime be sure to follow me on Snapchatat HoneysuckleBee and on instagram at HoneysuckleCatering to follow my behindthescenes snaps. I'm using 2 small lemons that i'll thinlyslice and add to a bowl. I'll be sure to take the seeds out though cause I don'twant any of that in the tea. The citrus in this recipe is loaded with vitamin C, whichis known to support the body's natural defenses.
Lemon and its juice is known to decreasesthe strength of the flu and the cold virus and it also reduces phlegm. Then I'll take a whole orange and thinlyslice it then I'll add it to my bowl. I'm leaving the rind on because that's whereall the natural oil are and it will really help flavor the tea later. Orange boosts immunity. Next, I have a knob of ginger about 2 incheslong that I'll peel. Then in my mortar and pestle I'll grind it up and add it intothe bowl. The ginger will soothe your scratchy throat after coughing.
My next ingredient is slightly unusual butsuper powerful. I'm adding in 1 tbsp of turmeric. Turmeric is a spice that can befound in most grocery stores but it's been used in ancient Ayurvedic and Chinese medicinesto clear infection and inflammation. Feel free to adjust the turmeric based on yourpreference. It can be quite strong. Finally i'm adding 1 cup of raw, organichoney. Raw organic honey is minimally processed and contains many nutrients. It's like liquidgold that helps with that incessant coughing, and it really helps with sleeping. It containstryptophan so this is great to get some rest! Once i've added all the ingredients together,I'll give it a good mix and store it in
a jar. The honey will draw out the liquidfrom the citrus and it'll become very syrupy. I first experienced homemade healing tea whenI was really sick and my mom made me this concoction of lemon, rosemary, and honey.Rosemary has its own medicinal properties for coughing but I really wanted to use Gingerand Turmeric so I came up with this recipe. Whenever I'm not feeling well I'll takea heaping tablespoon of this tea mixture and add it into a cup of hot water. Not only doesit taste great, I can feel the honey coating my throat making me feel better. Have you guys tried a homemade remedy tealike thisé How has it worked for youé Comment
