Cold HOW TO:
I’ve been fighting a nasty infection for the better part of a week now. So, taking the old motto: “if you can’t beat ‘em – join ‘em” to heart I figured … If I can’t get out and help Nick in the garden – I might as well bring the garden into me. With the amount of herbs I plant each year (or grow back every year) I knew I just had to have something natural to help defend my system. It just so happens I have a nice little bush of Lemon thyme by the back door.
Thyme is a natural remedy, woody herb that serves a variety of purposes. It’s been used since ancient times to sooth coughs, improve brain cell function, and relieve heartburn and indigestion. It tastes pleasant and it’s super easy (which is a bonus when you feel crummy) to make.
Things you’ll need:
2-3tsp of fresh thyme (I used about 5 sprigs)
1/4 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp of local honey (I’m spoiled and usually get mine from nick’s dad who keeps bees. But I did find a wonderful local place that has delicious honey)
2 cups of boiling water
Things you’ll have to do:
Seep thyme sprigs for 10 minutes
Sip carefully and enjoy!
