As much as we talk to the kids about germs, promote hand washing, and avoid touching our faces..
it seems like there's no avoiding it a couple times a year.
I really try not to take medicine when it's not an absolute necessity. I figure I've had to take enough of that stuff over the last few years, and nowadays, I turn to natural remedies whenever possible.
This afternoon, I turned to a cup of Throat Coat. Add a teaspoon of honey and you've got yourself the only cup of tea I'll willingly drink. I know tea is cute and poetic and stuff, but I just really don't have a taste for it, hard as I've tried. This stuff is delicious, though, and almost instantly soothes a scratchy throat which makes it even more worth drinking.
Do you have any other home-remedies to suggest for the common cold?
Stay healthy and have a beautiful rest of your week! :)
