Croupy Cough Natural Remedy

Tis the season for those awful bugs that keep us up nights coughing. I'd love to share with you one of my favorite cough and cold remedies. It's simple and safe for any age.

Bring 2 cups of filtered water to a boil. Add 1 tablespoon of dried Thyme and a 1/2 inch chunk of peeled ginger. (a teaspoon of bottled ginger works well too)

Let this simmer for 10 - 15 minutes. Then strain and add lemon and honey. Be generous with both.

Sip this throughout the day. This will make enough for one adult for one day. Start with 1/4 cup for a 5 year old - you can mix it with apple or cranberry juice.

Most people notice a rapid improvement in just one day. Of course you want to be sure to drink lots of fresh water in addition. Stay warm and sleep as much as possible.

Here's hoping your Holidays are full of joy and good health.
Be well ~
