November 22, 2016

 It's officially COLD SEASON! Some of you have been asking us about natural remedies to make to help stay healthy (and in tip top vocal condition) this winter. We warn you- some of these recipes may only be for the brave, BUT they really do work to help clear out mucus, balance out your system, and re-invigorate your body and voice. 


Lemon, Ginger, Honey: All Natural Cold Flu Remedy (by Simple Green Smoothies)

- Keep a big batch of this in your fridge to add to a cup of tea or hot water throughout the winter


Turmeric- Ginger Elixir (by Clean Plates)


Apple Cider Vinegar/Lemon Tea (by ME!)

3/4c of hot water

Juice of 1/2 a lemon

1 Tbs of Manuka Honey (it's pricey, but it's the most effective) OR 1 Tsp of LOCAL honey (get it at a farmer's has the local allergens in it, so your body will be better able to adapt to its surroundings)

1 shot of Apple Cider Vinegar (preferably BRAGG'S all natural)


Combine ingredients in a mug. Stir. Drink. 


Turmeric Tea (by Christine Schneider of LifeLight Massage)

1 cup ground ginger

1 cup ground cinnamon

1 cup ground turmeric


Combine and save for future use.


When ready for tea...

1 tablespoon of mixture

1 cup coconut milk or almond milk 

1 Tbs of honey (Manuka or local)


Heat the milk on the stove.  Add 1 tablespoon of ginger/cinnamon/turmeric mixture. Add honey to taste.


Start or end your day with these concoctions when you're starting to feel a cold come on, and you'll avoid having to spend days in bed without singing!
