 This natural cold remedy (it's a simple tea!) is the BEST and it only takes a few ingredients you might already have - apple cider vinegar, lemon, ginger and honey.

  • 1 knob fresh ginger
  • 1/4 fresh lemon
  • 1 tbsp apple cider
  • 1 tbsp honey
  1. Peel ginger (a spoon works great for this!), slice it and bring to a boil in about 1.5 cups water.  Simmer for 5 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, squeeze lemon into a mug.  Add apple cider and honey.

  3. After ginger tea is done boiling, add it to the mug.  I let the ginger pieces fall in too - they keep steeping as the tea cools.

  4. Drink this up to 3x a day as soon as you feel the first sign of a cold coming on!

  5. Enjoy! ;)
