Want to experience less colds and flus in your home this winter? It's pretty easy. We put a soup pot on the stove, and add some herbs. We bring it to a boil about three times a day and then simmer for about an hour. Why? Well, the bacteria and the viruses that are airborne, and trapped in our houses because we've closed them down for winter, are attracted to the steamed herbal molecules. This makes the molecules that can congest your lungs to become heavy and settle to the ground where they can be disposed of in your weekly cleaning. We've been known to do this is a slow cooker if you feel you want it going all the time. The brew is good for four days, just keep adding water. Herbs to put in are 1 handful dry eucalyptus leaves (or 12 drops essence oil), 1 handful of dry whole cloves, and one fresh lemon sliced up including seeds and skin. It smells great, and keeps everyone clear! If you feel something coming on, grab a towel and make a little tent to inhale deeply of the steam. Kicks it out in about 24 hours.
