Ginger & Cinnamon Tea Recipe – Good for Bronchitis, Flu, Chest Infection, Colds
When I was feeling like I was 80 with emphysema this week, I looked for holistic remedies that could help my lungs feel better. I found a website mentioning the combination of cinnamon and ginger being really good for getting rid of mucus. It’s also a warming combination to enjoy in the winter, or to help with colds/flus. So my husband came up with this concoction and made me this tea:
- ½ tsp fresh ginger (diced into small pieces)
- A dash of cinnamon
- 1 & ¼ C hot water
- 1/2 tsp honey
Let the tea brew for 5 minutes and drink. This is the quick fix version. It’s delicious and helped my sinuses feel good.
Another variation I tried the next day was simmering 1 tsp fresh ginger (diced), 1 cinnamon stick, and 2 C of water over the stovetop for 1 hr. Then I added 1/2 tsp honey and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice at the end. The aroma and spicy taste was delicious. Try it as a non-caffeinated way to start out your day! And recommend it to your clients/patients when they get sinus-related colds or the flu!
