Herbal Remedies (not weed)
There is a lot to look forward to as we transition into fall, the natural beauty in New England is hard to beat, unfortunately so is the common cold. I am always looking for delicious ways to stay at my best. However usually after a morning of herbal remedy research my Amazon shopping cart reaches an alarming total. It is at this point I realize I don't need an immune boosting tonic when I can just buy a lemon (right??). The good news is there are options, the choice is yours...save or splurge.
Immune System Booster:
Hot Lemon Water
Place 1 lemon slice in hot water.
Shop Immune System Booster
Peppermint, Ginger, or Fennel Tea
1 tea bag of your choice (peppermint, ginger, or fennel)
Boil water, let tea steep for 3 minutes.
Bitter Mushroom Coffee
Steep coffee, reishi powder and cinnamon in a french press, pour off and add 1 dose of healthy liver bitters to the cup. Top with cream and maple syrup and whisk – or use a milk frother for a creamy texture.
