Honey & Cinnamon Cold Remedy

Honey & Cinnamon Cold Remedy

Kids & Adults love this! Both honey & cinnamon have antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal properties.


1 teaspoon honey (organic raw honey)
...
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix. Take this amount every few hours as soon as you feel a cold or other illness coming on. After initially trying it with only one ‘dose’ and seeing the immediate effects, I now mix up a small bowl full of honey and cinnamon and spoon it into hot drinks or dip fruit into it all day long. I find that with young children it’s easy to just treat the whole family with this simple yummy remedy upon the first sign of a sniffle from anyone.

As with all home remedies, your mileage may vary and please do not substitute this for proper medical advice! Do not give to children 12 months or younger.

I saw this on Pinterest and use it ALL THE TIME on my family as well as myself.  There's also another one for coughs with honey, cinnamon, ginger, apple cider vinegar and cayenne.  Both work great.  The only thing wrong with what she says above is that you should NOT put it in anything hot...that kills the healing properties of raw honey.
