I’ve been battling a cold since last week, so I’m feeling a little under the weather. I’m actually getting better, thanks to herbal/homeopathic treatments. I really like Chestal Honey Cough Syrup 8.45 fl oz Liquidno weird colors or ingredients, it’s all homeopathic and the #1 ingredient is honey! If you’re concerned about taking OTC medications this is a great non-toxic alternative! I always get a killer cough after I’ve been sick and I used to have a prescription cough syrup, not any more. This all-natural syrup works for me, I can’t say enough about it!
I made myself a big pot of chicken soup with a chicken from the local farm, farmer’s market onions, homegrown celery and lots of homegrown garlic and hot peppers. It’s soothing and really helped break up my congestion.
I haven’t been able to do any canning in the evenings so I’ve been reading. As a result my library book pile is slowly dwindling, but the fruits & veggies are piling up on the table just waiting for their trip into the canner. While reading, I’ve been drinking lots of Throat Coat teawith honey. It is the perfect tea when you’ve got that raw scratchy feeling in your throat from coughing, I can’t recommend this tea enough!
As a result of my illness, I will have some great book reviews for you guys in the coming weeks. You will love some of these books I’ve been reading.
What remedies do you use to fight a cold/flu?
NOTE: I was not paid to tell you about these products, I’m the kind of person that tells people about products I love and I always appreciate it when people do the same for me so I don’t have to try different ones to find one I like.Filed under Miscellaneous | Comments (24)
