Bring your lemon water up a notch. Keep these therapeutic ingredients on hand in your kitchen and medicine is always in reach during the colder months. This simple tea is warming, cleansing, nourishes the liver, the skin and can be drank daily or as needed with the onset of acute illness. You can also omit the lemon and enjoy the ginger honey as a tonic to settle an upset stomach or to quell nausea.
