Here’s a recipe I make, and ingredients I keep handy,
all winter all year round.
This stuff’s amazing!
And because flu season seems to be upon us, I had to share it.
Along with my arsenal of:
- Homemade Herbal Cold Care Capsules
- Elderberry Syrup
- Natural Antibiotic Alternatives
- dōTERRA™ Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade™ essential oils
- and supplements of vitamin D, vitamin C, zinc, and magnesium
…this medicinal honey has kept me and my family from colds/flu, so I just know it will keep you healthy too!
DIY Medicinal Honey
- 1/2 cup organic, raw honey
- 1 tablespoon organic ceylon cinnamon, ground
- 1 teaspoon organic ginger, ground
- 1/4 teaspoon organic cayenne pepper, ground
- 3 drops dōTERRA™ On Guard® essential oils, optional
- Mix all of the ingredients until well combined. Note: If your honey is hard, you may gently warm it until it is stirrable, and then stir in the ground herbs and essential oils.
- Store on the counter in a 4 ounce glass jar. Will keep indefinitely.
Stir a teaspoon of the honey into warm lemon water or herbal tea. Or spread it over toast. Or just lick it right off the spoon.
If you’re already feeling under the weather, take 1 teaspoon every 2-3 hours. When I feel something coming on, I like to take it 3-4 times a day. Otherwise, this honey is great to consume once daily as prevention.
