It’s that time again, I just woke to find the ground covered with freshly fallen rain. A little early for sure but it feels like a Fall morning. In fact, the boys are playing with a marble run in their room right now, enjoying the last of lazy summer mornings. Soon I will be hollering for them to brush their teeth and get ready for school while I throw together lunches.
Immune enhancement is useful, necessary, and vital year round, but most of us don’t start thinking about what we can do to prevent illness until the Fall damp comes rolling in. Don’t worry, I have you covered.
I have teamed up with a local elderberry syrup producer, Sylling’s Elderberry, to educate you about ways to keep your immune system revved up and in ship shape all season long. Join my email list here to keep in the know: SUBSCRIBE.
Next week I’ll be releasing my new eBook that is filled with natural remedies for cold & flu season, using the ingredients you have on hand. Here is a sneak peak of one of the recipes…
Did you know that plants in the allium family (think onions and garlic) are exceptional for the respiratory tract and for reducing, thinning, and clearing mucus from lungs? Here is a surprisingly simple way to make these handy plants work for you. Make a quick onion syrup and use it to sweeten teas or take it by the spoonful straight up whenever your respiratory tract needs extra help or mucus has you down.

Let sit in a cool place for 1-2 days
