Welcome to the December 2012 Natural Living Blog Carnival: Natural Remedies. This post was written for inclusion in the monthly Natural Living Blog Carnival hosted by Happy Mothering and The Pistachio Project through the Green Moms Network. This month our members have written posts about how they use natural remedies in their homes.
The apple cider vinegar and honey cold buster beverage is my new go-to natural remedy when I feel like I am starting to get sick. A few months ago I happened to read a thread on someone's Facebook page discussing natural remedies for a cold. I was starting to feel like I was getting a cold at the time so I was intrigued by the ideas listed.
One of the remedies in particular peaked my interest: 1 TBS apple cider vinegar and 1TBS raw honey mixed in a cup of warm water. While I have always loved the tart and tangy smell of vinegar, I never drank it in a beverage until trying out this recipe. The sweet flavor of the honey balances out the tartness of the vinegar for a tasty warm drink.
I tried this remedy numerous times in the last few months and every time it does the trick and I don't get sick. My body is able to fight off those cold germs with the help of apple cider vinegar and honey! I also love that this natural cold buster is so simple to make and I always have the ingredients on hand.
Why Apple Cider Vinegar and Honey?
Honey is a natural sugar full of anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals. The best kind of honey to use is raw honey meaning it has not been processed or pasteurized so filled with more nutrients.
Next time you feel a cold starting, try this drink and see if it works magic in your body just like it does for me!
