Honey and lemon tea is an old remedy for curing a cold or sore throat. Honey is full of anti-bacterial properties good for getting rid of infection. It also coats the throat which can suppress a cough. Lemon is full of vitamin C and helps break up mucus. Mix with hot water to soothe inflammation and hydrate yourself. Get lots of sleep and relax!
Remember, in order to keep your honey raw, add the honey once your water is not boiling hot. The beneficial enzymes in honey are killed once it reaches over 120F.
This video is part of the Honey Challenge, our project to educate people on all the uses for honey. We want people to ditch those artificial sweeteners, body products full of chemicals, and processed foods and use honey instead!
