Good for what ails ye

Everyone has a cold or the flu right now. If you have to keep working/studying/moving despite a bite of the virus, try packing this lovely brew with you in a thermos. Sip it all day. You may not get better any more quickly, but it will make you feel warmed, juiced-up and loved.

Sherrard's Hot Apple Drink

organic unfiltered apple juice
fresh ginger

Heat the apple juice in a saucepan. Squeeze in the juice of one fresh lemon. Steep a cinnamon stick if you have one or sprinkle in some powdered cinnamon and stir well. Slice in a few chunks of fresh ginger. Let the whole brew simmer for a while and pour it into a cup for right now or a thermos for later.

Make a big batch, drink lots, share it with your friends and loved ones. When you are feeling crummy you need to give yourself a lot of TLC.

question: what makes you feel better when you're not feeling so good?

I wouldn't be without euculyptus oil (essential). It's cheap too. Put a few drops on a tissue and breath in deep from the mouth and nose. It will get you coughing, but also kills germs.

I think I'll go around the blogsphere telling everyone about it. Ha.

Thanks for the tip. I have tried it but I didn't have all the really natural products. It was still nice and comforting.
I had a link to this post on my blog.
