Ginger Honey Tea : There’s nothing like the combination of ginger and honey to fight off winter illness, whether it’s tummy trouble or a head cold.
Ginger promotes healthy digestion, eases nausea, and can help dry excess mucus in the nasal passages, while honey is a natural antiseptic. A touch of lemon adds an antioxidant that’s high in vitamin C, too.

Many people keep ginger and honey in their pantries and prepare a ginger-honey mixture whenever someone falls ill.
