  1. I am all for natural remedies and some of them taste quite awful. I am sure this one is pleasant to take.

    1. Yes indeed this concoction is easy on the throat. Initially I thought the turmeric smell and taste would be overpowering, but surprisingly there's no 'weird' taste. Really great for sore throat.

  2. Love this home remedy for cold! I usually drink ginger tea, but love this with citrus and turmeric.
