Ultimate Cold Relief Home Remedy Tea

Recipe by  

"If you feel it coming on drink lots of this. It can't hurt, and seems to have some effect clearing nasal passages. You may hate it at first, but by the end of the first cup you may want to make more. Breath the steam in deeply. Drink it as much or as often as possible while fighting off your cold. You can substitute balsamic vinegar for the apple cider vinegar"

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • My Great Grannie Gerdes, lovingly referred to as Keister Gamma by my family (long story), used to wash and disinfect with vinegar. She espoused the medicinal properties of the soured wine and used it to great effect while attaining a healthy 103 years of age. She must have been doing something right. My experience brewing kombucha has instilled a respect for the temperature sensitive active components in the medicinal qualities of vinegar, honey, and essential oils.

Coming down with what feels like a cold I decided to give this a try. Easy enough to make followed recipe. Does not taste bad at all sweet with the vinegar twang. Only gave it 4 stars because I had nothing to compare by. Will update if this remedy actually works!

Very nice! I added an extra tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, and about a quarter tablespoon of fresh ginger. I can almost feel it kicking my cold in the butt!

I was a little skeptical about the taste of this drink but turned out to be good. Sweet and quite enjoyable. This drink definitely helped to unblock my sinuses. This is a natural recipe that works and there is nothing better than that.
