With all the hub-bub about the flu this year I thought I'd toss this home remedy out there to help.
We probably all have whole bay leafs in our spice cupboards but did you know that Bay Leaves have been used in home remedies for centuries? Bay leaves can relieve body aches, help relieve coughs, clear up congestion, and fight the common cold and flu. It can also be used an an anti fungal to fight skin infections.
So if you're sitting at home and you or your kids are fighting the aches, coughs, and congestion of the flu, brew up a cup of this and be relieved.
Bay Leaf Tea
2 dried bay leaves
1/2 teaspoon sugar or honey
Boil the water in a pot with the bay leaves. After it boils pour it all in a mug, leaves and all. Add sweetener and drink slowly.
