Warding off Cold/Flu Germs
Good Afternoon Treasures!
I visited a friend this weekend and did not knowing she was sick until I got there. She was conscientiously careful but we all know sneezes and such travel quickly and great distances.
During my ride home I began feeling a bit of discomfort in my throat, my sinuses became uncooperative and I began coughing. Surely I don’t have time to be sick so when I got home I decided to head off the pesky germs. Below is a great recipe for deterring cold/flu germs and bacteria.
2 TBSP Nettles
2 TBSP Red Clover
1 TBSP Slipper Elm Bark
1 TBSP Astragalus Root
I added three tablespoons of this blend to my 16 oz tea press along with
2 Fresh Garlic Cloves
11/2 inches Fresh Ginger Root
I let the mixture steep for about 20 minutes. Before pouring into my cup I added a teaspoon of raw honey. I drank the first cup and felt a bit better; an hour later I drank the remaining tea and within 15 minutes I was good as new.
I also decided to go to bed a reasonable time (10pm) just to give my body extra love. I awakened without a hint of illness the next morning and was able to get so much done. I am truly grateful for the wonderful herbs Mother Earth provides for us to stay happy and healthy.
Best wishes to you and your family during this Holiday Season. May you be blessed with a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
Love, Peace & Blessings…
