Ginger has been used for thousands of years to soothe tummy aches, nausea and indigestion. And according to the University of Maryland Medical Center, it has also history of use for "flu-like symptoms, headaches, and painful menstrual periods.” I like to keep this ginger syrup on hand during the cold winter months along with other syrups, tinctures and teas that support the immune system. Suggestions for delicious ways to use it are in the post!
Determined to keep the bugs at bay, I made this homemade cold & flu remedy. It's so so easy to make and keeps in the fridge for months. Each morning I simply add a couple of teaspoons to some warm water. It also makes a lovely soothing drink if you are suffering with a sore throat.
