The cold season is upon us in Wisconsin and this two ingredient powerhouse should be a staple on your counter to knock out a cold before it gets a chance to get a hold of you or your family.
Cinnamon & Raw Honey Cold Fighter:
1 teaspoon of Raw Honey (antibacterial and antimicrobial properties)
1/4 teaspoon of ground Cinnamon (contains volatile oils that are antibacterial and anti fungal)
Mix together and take one teaspoon with a glass of water two or three times a day as soon as you feel a cold starting to come on.
I mix a larger batch and keep it on the kitchen counter. We take it by the spoonful and wash it down with a glass of water or mix it in our favorite cold fighting herbal tea.
These two simple ingredients seem to work wonder on a cold.
Just a side note on the various forms of raw honey:
What are some of your favorite home remedies to fight a cold?

You are not going to believe this, but I mix honey and cinnamon for my Ham Glaze! LOL! Maybe it will help everyone not spread any Holiday germs?

This sounds so delicious! I usually make a cold fighter out of thyme leaves and flowers, honey, fresh root ginger, a squeeze of lemon and raw honey… Thank you for sharing, Marci!
