NATURALLY HEALING COLD REMEDY INGREDIENTS
All the ingredients in this natural cold remedy have their own healing powers but it will still work and make you feel better with just these five basics :
- Half a lemon (for 1 or 2 people)
- Apple cider vinegar
- Ginger – fresh or dried
- Cinnamon – stick or powder
- Honey (nb don’t give honey to children under one)
You can give it an extra punch by adding these herbs that have been shown to help relieve cold symptoms:
These herbs are all natural antibiotics that are super easy to grow in containers in a kitchen or small garden but can also be used dried or frozen.
(I don’t include any essential oils in this natural remedy and very rarely use them as I fear they have become a bit of a scam with lots of them being promoted under what are basically pyramid schemes.)
