Honey, lemon, and ginger is a favorite tea in our house.

Whenever my girls are feeling under the weather they always ask for it.

And I totally understand why!

It’s warm, soothing, and all of the flavors mix together to make a delicious drink that can help you feel a little better right away 🙂

Health Benefits Of Honey, Lemon & Ginger


Not only is this mix of ingredients soothing and delicious, but there are many health benefits as well.

Here are just a few benefits of each individual ingredient.


Ginger


Ginger has been used for hundreds of years and has been found to have anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties which make it a perfect remedy for conditions such as:

  • Colds and sickness
  • Nausea
  • Indigestion
  • Pain
  • Healthy cholesterol levels

Ginger is also thought to improve brain function, protect against Alzheimer’s, and give some protection against certain cancers!

Lemon


Lemons are not always thought of as more than a garnish or an ingredient used in cooking or baking, but this citrus fruit packs a nutritional punch!

It is high in Vitamin C and soluble fiber, making it a great addition to food or drinks.


Here are just a few health benefits of lemons:

  • Can help boost the immune system
  • Reduce phlegm
  • Supports heart health
  • Protects against anemia
  • Aids in preventing kidney stones

Raw Honey


Raw honey has been used medicinally for thousands of years and has numerous health benefits. It is a great source of antioxidants and also has antibacterial and antifungal properties!

Because of these amazing benefits, raw honey is even used in some hospitals for burn or wound treatment.


A few health benefits of raw honey include:

  • Soothing sore throat
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Naturally suppresses coughing
  • Aids in digestion
  • Reduces infection of wounds

And so much more! Raw honey is truly amazing!

Ready to mix these three powerful ingredients together and make a delicious tea that can boost the immune system, soothe a sore throat, and relieve coughing?

Here is the super simple (and super delicious) recipe 🙂
