Honey and Lemon Tea

It started as a tickle, then grew to a slight hurt then I didn’t want to say “Barley” because it hurt my throat. I don’t think I’ve talked to a person in the last few weeks that hasn’t been sick so it was inevitable but I’m hoping this whole thing doesn’t get any worse so I’m pulling out my bag of home remedies. 

1.) Slippery Elm Bark in applesauce. (1 teaspoon to 1/4 cup)

2.) Chicken Noodle soup

3.) Rest

4.) Honey, Lemon and fresh grated cinnamon tea

Here’s how I make mine;

 

Gather a lemon(washed), cinnamon stick, raw honey, hot water  
 
Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice into tea cup. 

 
Grate the cinnamon stick with a micro plane into teacup  

   
Just until it looks like it’ll taste good but not be overly strong. 

Put a big tablespoon of honey in with everything else.    
Top with hot water, stir and sip slowly. Preferably in front of a “Golden Girls” episode.
