I have a cold right now and I have so little energy right now that I can hardly think. I hate being sick, but I hate medications almost as much. I'm just so sensitive to medications that the side effects that I get from them are sometimes worse than my sickness!
So, of course I usually go for home remedies. Right now, I'm sipping on some Adagio peppermint tea. Sure, any brand of peppermint tea is soothing, but I've found none more potent than Adagio. The flavor is also better. It actually tastes like fresh mint even though it's dried. Perfect for sore throught and sinus trouble.
Also, I like to make a chicken soup that has a special blend of spices: cinnamon, cloves, cayenne, cumin, fennel seed, coriander seed, and sweet paprika. Not only do these warm and fragrant spices feel good to my sinuses, but they do wonders for my mood. This soup feels like a big, warm, hug!
So, what are your favorite home remedies for whatever ails ya?
