With a preschooler and toddler at home, it seems like someone in my house is always sick. My girls are exposed to a million germs a day between school and all of their activities. No amount of hand washing can spare us completely.
As a busy mom I have no time for sick days that render me useless to my girls! When the sniffles strike (again and again and again) I have a secret weapon. This cold-busting wellness tea is super intense but if you drink the whole pot you will wake up the next morning feeling like a new person!
This tea is loaded with vitamin C from all the citrus, anti-inflammatories from the ginger, and turmeric while the dash of cayenne gives this tea a real kick.
Cold-Busting Wellness Tea
1 cup water
1 T cinnamon
1 T tumeric
1 tsp cayenne
Several pieces of fresh ginger (the more the better!)
Raw honey (optional)
- Juice the orange, lemon, grapefruit and lime.
- Add the citrus juices, water, cinnamon, turmeric, cayenne and fresh ginger to a pot and heat on medium low heat for 20 to 30 minutes.
- Sweeten to taste with raw honey and drink.
- It is best to drink the entire pot if possible to maximize results and hopefully keep your home cold-free this cold and flu season.
