Winter Sore Throat Tea Base

Winter Sore Throat "Tea"
(This is not my own recipe.  This recipe was copied and shared on Facebook too many times to know who the original author is.)
I will be experimenting with this recipe this weekend and will let you know if the measurements of the ingredients work out.

Make sure you have some of this ready...great recipe for sore throats and chest colds.  It makes about 2 cups.

  • 2 lemons thoroughly cleaned and sliced
  • 2 piece of ginger about the size of your pointer and middle finger together sliced into coin size pieces
  • Honey (about 1 cup-maybe more)
In a 12-16 oz. jar combine lemon slices and sliced ginger. Pour honey (organic is best) over it slowly. This may take a little time to let the honey sink down and around the lemon and ginger slices. Make sure when the honey has filled in all the voids, there is enough to cover the top of the lemon slices. Close jar and put it in the fridge, it will form into a "jelly". To serve: Spoon jelly into mug and pour boiling water over it. Store in fridge 2-3 months.

A Solid, Clean Foundation

Your home is not only your safe haven, it is a reflection of your consciousness. Whatever is going on in your mind will be reflected in the conditions of your home. To achieve balance and clarity in your life, you must have a solid, clean foundation. Your home and the conditions in which you live are a good place to start.

I love Iyanla.  Her approach to life is refreshing, as she preaches what she has experienced.  Unlike some spiritual and life coaches.

Borderline Personality Disorder - BPD

If you have a loved one that has been diagnosed or displays BPD behavior, and you’re at your wits end…. I recommend reading the book Stop Walking on Eggshells.

I have a link to download the PDF ebook of Stop Walking on Eggshells, and a link to the Workbook.

Hope it helps someone.

Another very good resource for support and in depth information is BPD Central.
