Nancy’s Favorite Immune Booster Tea

Nancy's Favorite Immune Booster Tea

(This is GREAT for even the tiniest scratchy throat… the sooner the better!)

  • Traditional Medicinals "Echinacea Plus Tea" (the one with Elderberry if possible)
  • 2-3 Tbs. Honey
  • 2-3 Tbs. Lemon Juice (Fresh, frozen, or bottled… NOT reconstituted)
  • 1-3 drops DoTerra OnGuard Essential Oils
  • Sprinkle of Cayenne pepper
  • (Optional) 1 shot of Rum or Whiskey

Boil 6-8 oz. water. Use one tea bag, cover & steep 10-20 min. Add honey and stir until dissolved. Add other ingredients to taste. Drink 3 c. per day if possible for several days until symptoms are gone. Obviously see your doctor if not.

Theory: Echinacea improves immune system, honey kills bacterias, lemon is an astrigent to pull toxins out of tissues, DoTerra OnGuard has been found to kill bacterias and viruses, Cayenne improves the blood and is synergetic with the previous items, and Rum great for lung symptoms to help to open bronchioles

I keep adding, trying, & doing things that I find improve my health. THIS is something I drink at the very first hint of a sore throat, sniffles, or slightly swollen lymph in my throat/neck. I usually only need 1-2 cups and it's GONE! Remember, the sooner the better! ENJOY!
