Fall Nesting {Day 30} - Honey Lemon Ginger Tea

All right. I admit it. This time of year, as fabulously wonderful as it is, can also be incredibly busy, full of commitments and a little bit chaotic. We run around, we cook, we decorate, we run some more, we volunteer to lead crafts at elementary school holiday parties even though large groups of children stress us out (oh, is that one just me?) and we finish it up with another healthy dose of running around. I'm tired just thinking about it.

Sometimes we feel exhausted or burnt out, and occasionally we even get sick. I've been fighting a little cold for several days now, which is always what happens when I have lots of things happening at once.

One of the magical things my mother taught me years ago was to make honey lemon ginger tea.

It's a little cure all for when I don't feel so great or I'm just worn out. Honey is good for coughs and irritated throats, and all three ingredients are good for your immune system and overall health. The ginger might burn a sore throat a little, but you'll notice it feels much better afterward.

I had to throw some together this evening after a whirlwind trip to the grandparents and then a church Halloween carnival... I am beat. 

You should try it, it's really easy to customize depending on what you like.

Honey Lemon Ginger Tea
1 mug hot water filled 3/4 full
1-2 Tbs. honey, depending on your tastes (I use 1, so start there and add more if needed)
1 lemon, juiced (a couple tablespoons)
1/2-1 tsp. powdered ginger (I like it spicy!)

Stir together and enjoy.

Nothing tastes better if you're feeling a little under the weather!

P.S. Happy birthday to my baby!

  1. Thank you, I just made myself some. I have been fighting a cold for a week, now. I forgot I had some honey and ginger crystals to make a hot tea with. 8^)

  2. Mmm, will have to try that. Maybe right now.
