You have probably noticed how short are the days and how cold are the mornings…winter is here and the inconvenience with it! But lucky gardeners we are! Nature is well done and provides us all the good things in the right time to fight against the cold, flu, and cough…Herbal teas! Thyme, Rosemary, Sage, Marjoram still abundant in our gardens and are our allies for nasty winter colds!

Thyme is a natural antiseptic, due in part to its concentration in thymol it helps to heal winter cold, simply bring some water to boil and a bunch of fresh or dry thyme, filter and drink 3cups a day!

Rosemary, fortifying and stimulant is highly recommended for tired and lightly depressed people.

Sage is a natural antiseptic really efficient against sore throat.

Marjoram and oregano are good stimulant, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic commonly used to heal respiratory infections.

For an explosive effect blend them all together add some lemon juice and your local organic honey and you will kick the cold out!
