Right after the new year, here in Central Texas, we have cedar fever season. It happens every year. It can make you downright miserable with its sneezing, stuffy nose and watery eyes.
This year has been one of the worst we've had in years. Yesterday I was at a volleyball tournament with my daughter and sneezed at least 50 times during the day. I couldn't wait to get home and make my healing, herbal tea for relief.
Here's a recipe that I've found to be extremely beneficial and healing during the cold, flu and allergy season:
Turmeric, Honey & Ginger Tea
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- Splash of nut or soy milk
- Raw honey, to taste
In a small saucepan, bring water to boil. Add turmeric and ginger, reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes.
Stir in milk and strain tea into a cup. Add honey and enjoy!
