It’s that time of year with coughs, colds & sore throats, so here is a very simple recipe to help ease those long winter nights!

The Winter Soother Recipe:

1 x fresh Lemon

2 x teaspoons of Manuka Honey (+ 20 on label)

Boil kettle and put hot water in a mug. Add two/three tea spoons of good quality Manuka Honey of a high factor preferable +20 or +15 (can also eat it off the spoon if your throat is very sore) add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and enjoy.

Only add fresh ginger if your feeling cold. If your running a temperature it is best avoided, and just stick to the above recipe.



Did you  know that Acupuncture and Tui Na (Chinese Medical Massage) can also be a great and simple way to relieve coughs and colds, and help to boost up your immunity!
