    Whether or not it works scientifically, is one thing, but I found that it helped soothe a little. It is nice and not vile as I thought it was going to be (you know, home made concoctions normally are... ok, maybe I’ve had dodgy ones 🤷‍♀️). Even my 7 year old asked for seconds. I’ve made this twice now and have taken it to work in a thermos. Enjoying this better than a cup of tea actually. Thank you

    My daughter made this for her sick mumma Love ... and honestly, it really seemed to relieve my sore throat and flu symptoms. At the very least, it was a deliciously soothing drink that brought comfort when I really didn't feel like eating or drinking anything. It blessed me heaps!

    made this for my husband just to see if it would help his sore throat and cold, it did. He had seen his doctor and told him what I had been giving him and the doc said to keep taking it. No antibiotics needed. Thanks for the recipe, will be going in to my favourites.
