|Hot water, lemon, honey, and cayenne pepper|
I know that drinking warm water and lemon is good for you on a daily basis, so it might have to make a more frequent appearance around these parts.
I also chugged an Emergen-C packet every morning, and I have Joel doing it too so he doesn't get sick. I think Emergen-C works if you use it when you start to feel the onset of cold, I'm pretty sure once you've got it, it can't help you, but I guess it can't really hurt.
Also while I was perusing ways to get rid of my cold as quickly as possible, I saw a lot of information on essential oils. Have you used them? I've seen a few friends sell/post them on Facebook, but I'm just not sure I believe the hype....Thoughts?
Any other tricks of the trade?
