Common Colds Prevention
We still cannot cure the common cold, but many families
have their own trusted home remedies for colds that are treasured and passed
down from generation to generation because they work
so well. Grandma really did know best when it came to home remedies for colds.
Herbal teas with lemon,
eucalyptus, thyme and mint teas,
served with a generous dollop of honey put to shame any store bought chemical
concoctions sold at the drugstore. Homemade hot
chocolate may be the best thing for a child with a cold and you don't
have to hold their noses in order to get them to "take their medicine." My
own favorites are the warming cordials made with black
cherry, elder berries, spices and brandy.
These warming, hardy winter drinks are fun to drink and share with friends,
even if you don't have the sniffles.
