Wellness Wednesday

We're about to enter the "holiday season." For many people that means more stress which in turn leads to a weakened immune system making them more susceptible to colds and the flu. One answer is to use a homemade remedy called "Fire Cider" that is made from all natural, healthful ingredients such as garlic, horseradish root, ginger root, onion, and honey. These are ingredients that have antibiotic, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties. The recipe can be found here on the Mountain Rose Herbs blog.

I have a batch of it steeping on my kitchen counter. It will be ready at the end of the month when I'll strain it and mix it with honey to make it palatable (and to provide more health-protecting elements) and have it handy when I feel the slightest bit under the weather.
