Everyone is liable to colds and flu at this time of year and sometimes the greatest gift of all is a soothing, healing, comforting Elixir.

A lot of people who'd tried this, swear by it. And it tastes pretty good too. This is what you do:

2. One teaspoon chopped fresh ginger root
3. Three teaspoons of chopped fresh (or 1 of dried) rosemary
4.Three teaspoons of chopped fresh (or 1 of dried) sage
5. Juice of one lemon
6.One tablespoon of honey
METHOD: Put items 1-4 in a teapot or jug; pour 200mls of boiling water over the. Leave to steep for 10 mins. Strain into a clean cup; stir in lemon juice and honey.
It should be cool enough to sip straight away.

DOSAGE: Take three times a day or more if you like. Safe for children and adults. You might want to make it a little weaker for children (5 mins infusion)..
