Chamomile Ginger Wellness Blend

CHAMOMILE GINGER WELLNESS BLEND

When the weather starts getting colder outside, those colds start to creep up on us and before we know it we have a runny nose and sore throat. Nobody has time for that. If you feel a cold coming on, this wellness blend is a great tonic to soothe a sore throat any day. The chamomile tea helps with insomnia, digestion, migraines, and generally boosts immunity. Ginger tea and lemon juice help with digestion as well and are natural cough suppressants and sore throat soothers. Ginger also helps stimulate sweating, which cleanses your system and lowers body temperature. No wonder it’s called a wellness blend!
