It’s nearing the end of summer, the kids are heading back to school and you know what that means – it’s cold season. Fortunately, we have a natural way to cure and/or prevent a cold and it’s super simple to make.

This recipe uses the natural healing powers of lemon, ginger and everyone’s household staple – apple cider vinegar.

Getting a high quality apple cider vinegar is crucial for this to work. Make sure your ACV is organic and contains a mother culture (most brands will have “with mother” written on them.

Lemon adds a nice tart flavour as well as natural electrolytes and vitamins (including lots of vitamin C).

Ginger provides a whole host of nutritents and also helps the ease digestion. This allows your body to process all these great ingredients without causing any major stomach discomfort.

All of these ingredients help alkalise your body.

Colds often come about as a result of an acidic environment in your body, brought about through a diet of processed foods and sugar. 

If you take this natural cold remedy as soon as you notice a cold coming, you’ll be amazed at how quickly it will start working!

Give it a try and let us know how well it worked for you #sweetfreedom.

Love and hugs,
