It may not completely cure your cold, but it will definitely help soothe a sore throat. At the first signs of a cold, I drink 1 to 2 ginger teas per day, and I find my symptoms subside quickly. Since it is caffeine free- it safe for most children 2 years and older (you just need a little less ginger- and maybe more honey)!
This is what you need:
-12 oz of hot water
-1/2 to 1 T honey
-1-2 T grated ginger (1 to 2 teaspoons for children)
Hope you stay healthy during this cold/flu season!
Ginger tip: you can use bottled ginger, but I prefer the taste of natural ginger root. Ginger root stores well in the freezer. Prior to freezing, break the ginger into 2 inch pieces and place in an airtight bag.
