Learn how to make the best Lemon Ginger Home Remedy for coughs, sore throats and colds in this easy natural remedy recipe.
I’m happy to know so many natural home remedies for colds. While I’m a huge fan of the Master Tonic (aka Fire Cider), it’s a bit too much for some people to tolerate. So I wanted to bring you a milder natural cold tonic.
This Lemon Ginger Cold Busting Tonic recipe uses ingredients you probably already have on hand, so you can reach into your fridge and pantry and whip up a batch quickly! I love the combination of lemon and ginger for supporting optimal health. It make a great tea combo too.
