Do you ever wake up with a stuffy nose and clearing your throat constantly, but you know you don’t have a cold? I did this morning. It’s gone now.
Try some of this tea:
1 teaspoon peppermint leaves
1 teaspoon nettle leaves
1 teaspoon chamomile flowers
Pour some cool water over them, then add some hot water. Don’t make it too hot. Let it steep for a few minutes.
It tastes good and should help clear your sinuses. If you have an infection, that may be another story. Although, it might help with that some too. I don’t usually get sinus infections, so I can’t give testimony to that.
If you drink nettle tea or eat it on a regular basis, it is suppose to help fight those allergies that sometimes get hold of us.
If you think you have a cold, take your elderberry syrup and some echinacea. That should help shorten the cold.
Also, whether you have a cold or not, some ginger juice, lemon juice and honey tea tastes terrific and may help some with that cold. Its a wonderful tea to snuggle down with on a cool evening no matter how you feel!
