Citrus Bomb

Citrus fruit ready to squeeze

I’ve been feeling a cold coming on, so I’ve been drinking a citrus concoction that my husband heard about from a friend.  You squeeze one lime, one lemon, one orange, and one grapefruit and then combine the juices in a saucepan.  Heat until just boiling, and then pour into a cup.  This blast of citrus did knock out my sore throat.  And I’m going to keep drinking this citrus bomb until my stuffy sinuses clear.  Wish me luck.

    Good luck! My favorite cold and sinus soother is World Peace tea from Kuan Yin Teahouse. It’s basically a peppermint tea with cloves, to which you can add freshly grated ginger root for extra zing.

    I’ll have to keep this in mind for my arsenal! There are plenty of germs around school these days. I’m not a fan of grapefruit though. Could it be left out?
