Lemon, Ginger and Honey : All-Natural Remedy

All-Natural Cold/Flu Remedy

As the weather gets windier and colder, flu and cold season kicks into gear. I get a little obsessive (wipe down the shopping cart like crazy, wash my hands numerous times a day and gulp down my immune boosting green smoothies). Yet no matter what I do, I’m bound to get one cold a year. That’s why I’ve come to rely on this awesome all-natural cold/flu remedy.

Lemon Ginger and Honey All-Natural Remedy For Cold and Flu

I recently made this concoction of fresh lemon, ginger, and honey to prepare for when the germs start spreading. I keep it in the fridge and the first sign of a cold or flu, I just scoop out a few tablespoons, add hot water and enjoy this delicious and soothing tea.

Lemon: High in vitamin C, which keeps the immune system strong and neutralizes the free radicals in your body. This reduced the inflammation and swelling.

Ginger: Helps you sweat out the toxins in your body, which is helpful when you have a cold or flu. Ginger is also helpful for settling upset stomachs, dizziness, nausea, vomiting and cold sweats.

Honey: Soothes a sore throat, making it an effective and natural cough suppressant. This improves the body’s ability to fight infection and decreases the risk of fevers. The natural sweetness of honey also balances the tartness of the lemon and the ginger’s spice, giving honey, lemon and ginger tea its soothing flavor.

    Do you have any recipes for better sleep? I was taking a combo of coconut oil, honey and sea salt, but lately, it has been making me sick to my stomach. I don’t have a problem going to sleep, just staying that way. I’m not sure why it worked, but when I did wake up in the middle of the night, it was much easier to go back to sleep. In the morning, I didn’t feel as tired. Any suggestions on a substitute? Thanks! 🙂

    Hi there. After a 3rd terrible bout of bronchitis, I have started drinking and infusion of lemongrass, ginger, fresh lime juice and honey. I could not eat for 2 weeks and was too ill to move. I find this drink very soothing and was looking around for alternatives and found your recipe as it seems a good idea to keep some ready to use. I wonder if adding lemongrass to your version would work.

      Hi Hazel,

      I think lemongrass is a great idea. But so the flavor doesn’t become overwhelming, I’d suggest adding the lemon grass when you’re ready to add the hot water…instead of letting it sit in the lemon, ginger, honey mixture.

      Hope this helps!
