Hi all, As I am sat here with the mother of all colds (in Cyprus, too- not bloody fair!) I thought I'd start a thread to share and natural cold remedies that people have. My stalwart is Lemon and Ginger tea, made by grating lemon zest and fresh ginger root into a muslin bag and then steeping in a cup of lemon juice and hot water. Add honey to taste. -works great for morning sickness too. The ginger is the secret ingredient, it has a slight burn to aid a sore throat and makes you sweat so you get the toxins out. Works for me everytime. Anyone else got any tried and tested remedies?
