Hi, everyone! I have been under the weather recently, and I have not been able to update the blog. I apologize in advance! I have seen that tons of people are under the weather lately so here is a tea that I concocted to help combat the common cold!

Kick the Cold
When colds stop your flow
Coughs, sneezing, and scratchy throats
Will fade with the steam

Ingredients for an 8fl oz cup of tea:

1-1 ½ inches of fresh ginger root, sliced
1 bag of elderberry tea*
2 tsp of lemon juice

1. Boil water
2. Place fresh ginger root into water after it reaches a boil
3. Remove from heat
4. Add bag of elderberry tea
5. Let steep for 2-4 minutes
6. Remove ingredients.
7. Add 2 tsp of lemon juice (or more/less depending on your preference)

*The reason I suggest using a bag of elderberry tea is because elderberry is a tricky ingredient and if used to a degree that is more than healthy can lead to nausea, or uncontrollable diarrhea. Also the stems and roots of the elderberry contain high amounts of cyanide and too much elderberry intake/improper usage of the berry can lead to cyanide poisoning. This is why I recommend adding a tea bag of already prepared elderberry tea in place of actually managing the berry itself since it can be so tricky.

Warning: Don't use ginger if pregnant or breast feeding. Don't use ginger if taking blood thinners, as ginger might affect how fast blood clots. If you experience diarrhea or vomiting from elderberry then contact your health care practitioner.

So try this tea and see if it helps your symptoms!
