I have a cold. At first I thought the sneezing was due to allergies, but then it didn’t go away and I felt rotten, which is what happens when one has a cold. Achooo!!

When I get a cold, I try to remember the laundry list of things that make it all better. Drink lots of water. Check. Take zinc and vitamin C. Take omega 3 fish oil (helps boost immune system). Take elderberry syrup (it’s antiviral). Keep warm. Check.

Another thing on the list that is especially comforting when one has a cold is a hot cup of honey and lemon tea.

Well, strictly speaking, there’s no “tea” in the tea. It’s just honey, lemon juice, and hot water.

But it’s so good, especially if you have a cough or congestion. The lemon juice helps cut through congestion and the honey soothes the throat.

You can also add fresh ginger to your honey and lemon tea. Sometimes I’ll just have the hot water over ginger. That’s good too!

But usually, it’s just honey and lemon. Now please excuse me while I catch up on the last thing on the list—rest. Peace out. ~Elise
