It’s a 24 degrees here this morning in South Carolina. Brrrr! We are knee deep in the cold and flu season which means lots of homemade elderberry syrup , menthol eucalyptus balm  flowing freely around here!
If you don’t have them already on hand, it’s nice to be able to make something quick and easy to give you some relief while recovering. To me that means hot herbals teas. Grab some herbs and your infusion teapot and get ready to brew!
It seems like we have a lot of sore throats lately, so give this blend a try. 
1 tsp sage leaf (mountain rose herbs | amazon)
½ tsp licorice root (mountain rose herbs | amazon)
¼ tsp cinnamon chips (mountain rose herbs | amazon)
¼ tsp ginger root (mountain rose herbs | amazon)
Add the herbs to your teapot and cover with hot water. Let it steep to 5-10 minutes before straining. Add a little honey and lemon if you’d like. And if you can stand it, a dash of cayenne pepper is really beneficial for soothing the throat and opening the sinuses.
