With us being in the cold, flu, and allergy season, trying to keep away from the sniffles from others can be a test. Having said that there are great home remedies that can help when you feel a little under the weather. Like my lemonade recipe below.
However, there are some tips you should still follow. Always remember to wash your hands with warm water and soap every chance possible. I walk with hand sanitizers and wipes when I am out and about, to clean off a shopping cart, after using the signature pen at checkout, holding a menu, even at the gas pump or shops and restaurants doors. YEP, that’s me!
Here are some benefits of the ingredients used in this recipe:
Honey: (Local) helps coat your throat , Research should using local honey may fight injection, aids tissue healing, and may help reduce inflammation. Keep in mind all honeys are not equal. You should be using a good quality honey.

3 Cups water
1 Tablespoon grated turmeric
