Medicinal Remedies for a Cold, 1/ 19/ 11
A couple nice teas to help you fight a northwest cold:
If you have a cold with clear mucus and no sore throat:
Make a strong tea with honey, cinnamon, ginger, and some pepper or chili. Drink 3-4 cups/ day for a few days. This will work best if you can start it when you first feel your body fighting with the cold, but it will also help after it has taken hold.
If you have a cold with yellowish mucus and a sore throat, rather use this recipe:
Make a strong tea with honey, mint (lots of mint), chrysanthemum (optional), ginger (a little), and pepper or chili (a little). Drink 3-4 cups/ day.
