Colds & Flu

Squeeze 1 fresh lemon (can use bottled but fresh is preferable), add 1 – 2 teaspoons honey and a small fragment of menthol crystal (very small as it is very strong), top up with boiling water (3/4 cup level) and drink it as hot as you can.  Inhale the fumes of the menthol while you are drinking the mixture.  You can also add a tot of brandy if you wish at night.  It will help to open up the airways and help to break down the congestion and phlegm buildup.  You can drink this as often as you wish.  The lemon and honey help to soothe a sore throat as well. – Listed by Iris De Gernier, South Africa, December 12, 2017
