Honey has wonderful qualities - it is a natural energy booster, immune system supporter and antibacterial among others but we will concentrate on these for our purpose today.
Ginger is a warming agent for your lungs and throat and will help with sinus congestion and pain, sore throat and upset tummy.
Lemon is high in vitamin C, is an antioxidant, antiviral and antibacterial and tastes great!
Here is a great way to get all of those in one easy to use jar!
Gather your ingredients together, slice up the lemon and the peeled ginger into good size slices. Add these to an old sterilized jar (this is why we keep old jars - canning season is coming up and I need my masons!)
Pour your LOCAL honey over it to cover, label and keep in the fridge. I cannot stress local honey enough. Making sure you and your family have local honey helps alleviate, and often eliminate, allergy symptoms. This should be used up no problem but if not, it should keep for a few months stored in your fridge.
To use you just take a teaspoon to a tablespoon and add it to hot water and make a tea of it. Drink often throughout the day. You can drink this once a day as a preventative or if you already have a cold/flu then drink 3-4 times per day and make sure you get your fluids to help flush the sickness out of you!
