H is for Honey
I've used honey occasionally, but in the past year, I have decided that honey has to be a staple in my house. I've been drinking much more hot tea lately, and honey is the best sweetener for hot tea. I've also been reading more about honey as a home remedy, curing what ails you and keeping you fit.
In the past two weeks, I came down with bronchitis. I was determined to knock it out, but I really dislike antibiotics. In my reading, I had discovered that honey and cinnamon is a great remedy for many illnesses and diseases. So I mixed a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon with a tablespoon of honey and simply ate that every morning for a few days (about five days into my sickness) and my wheezing, coughing, drainage disappeared. I've been drinking a cup of decaffeinated, citrus herb tea with honey in it once a day, too. I'm feeling much better!
Thanks to our family friends for supplying us with some great honey!
