Simple Natural Remedy - Rocket Fuel

When anyone in our family gets a head cold, flu, sore throat, or similar ailments, we throw a number of weapons at it.  One of our first lines of defense is herbal essential oils like the On-Guard blend.  They are SO easy to use and effective as well.

But we find it's often a good idea to use a number of remedies simultaneously.  Very often we'll also use hydrotherapy treatments as well, with excellent results.

But I'll have to say that one of our favorite (and tastiest) remedies is what we call "rocket fuel".  This is NOT a nasty concoction like you may have tried in the past (does "Russian Penicillin" come to mind?).  You actually make this drink taste good.  If it doesn't taste good then you either added too much cayenne/ginger/garlic or you didn't add enough honey (the more likely problem).  Raw honey is good for you and will soothe your throat, so don't be too stingy with it.

So here is what goes in this awesome drink...

  • 8-9 Lemons juiced
  • 5-6 Cloves of Garlic
  • Dash of Ginger (optional)
  • Dash of Cayenne
  • Honey to taste (raw honey is preferred)

Blend all the ingredients in the blender and strain if necessary. Then pour into a quart jar and fill with water to the top.

You can sip on it throughout the day as much as needed, but since it is a little strong, I wouldn't put too much of it on an empty stomach.

Give this a try and see if you like it as much as we do.  It's so soothing to the throat and is a real boost to the immune system.  And did I mention that is tastes really good (if you do it right)?
