Today is Mother’s Day and it is a beautiful sunny day. I woke up feeling miserable from a cold and sore throat that I have acquired somewhere. Perhaps from the grand kids as they both had something similar. Very sore throat, painful ears, runny nose and just generally achy. I think this is going around as my consulting friend in Arizona had the same thing. It is very difficult to get over it but I am feeling better after drinking a cup of hot ginger and lemon tea.
I use local honey with my tea that I buy at the Winter Park Saturday Market. It is incredible honey as you can get so many flavours. Las time the grand kids and I picked out orange, regular and lavender. This is the first time I ever tasted Lavender honey but it is great.
I plan to go out and find some slippery elm cough drops today when I work up the energy.
I also have thieves diffusing in all the diffusers in the house and that really helps with the runny nose. I hope none of you get this miserable bug but if you do, these natural items give you some relief. They are not a cure as a friend of mine once told me “the cure for a cold is 8 days”. But if we can’t cure it,, at least we can feel a bit better as we work through it. I’ve listed a few samples of Winter Park Honey and will list more in the shop. This is really high quality and excellent flavor.
