I discovered in college how wonderful hot, sweet lemonade
helped me get rid of a cold.
1 Tablespoon or more of Lemon juice
1 Tablespoon Honey or to taste
1 8 oz cup hot water
I usually cover the bottom of my cup with the lemon juice
and as much as I like a lot of honey (I have to watch my sugar intake).
I sometimes stick a tea bag of my favorite herbal tea in with a pinch of
cayenne to help my sore throat and up my vitamin C which cayenne is packed with.
Then in goes the boiling water. Let
the tea bag steep and then remove it. The
lemon will clear the congestion and pull the mucus right out of the body.
Honey is antibacterial and coats the throat to sooth irritated skin.
You could even combine the elderberry tea above with the hot lemonade.
