Hot Water, Lemon & Honey ~ My Favorite Cold Weather Drink

About two years ago, I was having some trouble with my throat. I noticed that my boss always had a cup of lemon and honey around the cold season. I went into her office to talk with her and she noticed that I didn't sound well. So, she told me to grab one of my tea cups and make hot water, lemon and honey to soothe my throat. It worked!! So now when the season changes to cold I have those ingredients already at home and work. Here are 9 reason why you should drink it:

1: Helps improve digestion

2: Cleanses the stomach improving the functioning of the colon
3: Beats constipation
4: Helps in cleansing the lymphatic system
5: Gives you an instant boost of energy and improves your mood
6: Cleans your urinary tract and acts as a diuretic
7: Improves oral health
8: Increases your chances of weight loss
9: Can give you clear skin

I found this information here. But it also helps with sore throats. I love it!! I also love being able to use my china tea cups at work.  You should try it. It's a real treat!

  1. I'm a big fan of hot water, lemon and tea and any other remedy that is natural. Love hearing all of the other benefits!!

    1. I loved learning about the benefits too! Thank you for reading!

  2. Love the old country roses china. I first fell in love with it in 2011 while I was reading a post on Between Naps On the Porch. Last weekend my husband and I stopped in an antique shop, and what was waiting to my left as we walked in. It was the OCR breakfast cups and saucers with 4 salad plates and 4 all purpose bowls, along with the manufactures box from 1996. I immediately looked underneath for the correct markings. Long story short we purchased it half off for $50.00. Sorry for the Long post!

    1. Ohh, I am so jealous! I saw a set at the antique store but they wanted over $200! I know that Macy's sells the Old Country Roses set. One teacup and saucer was $60! I thought, "Oh dear", it's going to take me years to get a complete set!
