|A week ago. SO very different weather. Oh so different.|
The rain in LA is coming down hard. Really hard. I have to get ready for work and then drive in this weather. Tonight. This, is really freaking me out.
My throat is itchy. Like when you want to get a scratcher and shove it down your throat and scratch, and my ears are hurting and I want to dig in those too.
I really should have stayed home. But it's too late to call sick. And nurses are like gold during days like this ( : Specially right before the Holidays.
I'm taking care of my throat naturally, thought I should share...
Honey and Red Wine Vinegar Soother
2 tablespoons 100% honey
1/2 cup water
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
Mix all and heat until warm. Stir and take as needed.
Honey and Cayenne Pepper Throat Coater
1 tablespoon 100% pure Honey
1 cayenne pepper
juice of 1/2 lemon
4 cups of water
Place cayenne pepper in water and bring to a boil. Add lemon juice. Let sit for a while and add honey. Drink throughout the day.
I have been using the recipes above to help with throat pain and itchiness.
This tea has helped also.... (it will be in my mug before I leave to work tonight)...
Honey Citrus Blend
1/4 cup 100% pure Honey
3 bags of green tea
1 cinnamon stick

Wish me luck tonight. I just want to have a good night ( :
