I appear to have a bit of a cold. :( I'm mostly just stuffed up and sinus-headachy, and extra tired. I looked up some herbal home cold remedies online, and most of them sounded disgusting. (Garlic tea? Wearing castor oil like a lotion? Salt water nose enemas? No thank you.) However, Ginger tea is a plan I can get behind.
All you really need to do is chop up some ginger and steep it in hot water for 15 minutes or so. You don't even need to remove the skin since you're not really eating it. You can add honey or lemon if you want to, or just keep it straight up ginger.
Since my awesome brother got me this gorgeous electric teakettle for Christmas, all I have to do to get piping hot water is press a button... and I have (almost) instant ginger tea! Sayonara, head cold! (I hope)
