Natural Remedies

Can't have my peeps getting sick and I know that many of you don't like to take medicine.  So we're going to try some of the remedies from our childhood.  Here's an excerpt from the Old Farmer's Almanac:

From the earliest times in recorded history, plants have been used to heal.
• Look to herbs with strong scents such as rosemary, thyme, sage, basil, and oregano for immune-boosting antiseptic and antibiotic qualities. See more cold remedies.
• To ease sore throats, make your own gargle by adding a teaspoon or two of cider vinegar, sage, chamomile, or lemon juice to warm water. See more sore throat remedies.
• Lemon juice, sweetened with sugar, will relieve a cough. See cough remedies.
See more herb lore and natural remedies.

Let me know if you try them.  Better yet, let me know if they work.  Be safe.  Be Blessed.
