It’s no fun being sick. I have a cold and some aches and I don’t feel like myself at all and it’s driving me crazy! It seems like a cold shouldn’t slow us down as much as they do.. but you really do feel yucky don’t you? Years ago a friend of ours told us about this little concoction to drink when you’re sick. It doesn’t taste good but honestly within a day you start to feel better. I drank this all day yesterday and am definitely on the mend!
What you’ll need //
pot of water
oil of oregano in pill form or oil.
In the past we have put the oil directly into the drink and that makes it REALLY hard to drink cause that stuff is strong! I just bought pills yesterday and am taking them along with drinking the green tea/ ginger/ garlic/ lemon brew! It’s much easier to swallow!
I’ll take half a lemon and squeeze the juice in the water and then throw the rind in as well to simmer. A couple garlic cloves, a chunk of ginger and a green tea bag or two. Throw it all in the water and let it simmer for awhile. Then scoop the liquid out and drink it warm. I keep drinking glass after glass until I get through it all.. probably about 4-5 cups worth!
I found a couple of interesting articles about Oil of Oregano that you may want to read as well!
