I hope that all of our readers are feeling fit and healthy. However it is that time of year when there are lots of colds and sinus problems around. I always use a tried and tested natural remedy and I swear by it. Lots of people have different versions of this but here's the one we use.
You will need:
A mug or cup
Some fresh ginger (about an inch)
Boiling Hot Water
Peel and grate the fresh ginger into your mug.
Squeeze the juice of one lemon over this.
Add a tablespoon of honey (vary this depending on your taste preference and how sweet you want it).
Top up with boiling water. Let it brew for a few minutes and then drink.
I think warm drinks are so important when you have a cold or sinus problems and the ginger, honey and lemon all work together to kick your sinuses in to touch.
Some people say to add whisky and not the ginger, rum and brandy has also been suggested. Personally I like it with the honey, ginger and lemon.
Picture to follow.
