I woke up this morning with an ache in my throat. Being a mama that is running two businesses from home and two babes to look after there is NO TIME to be down for the count. After getting my babes some breakfast I quickly popped a cup of water in the microwave and set it to my desired tea time 1 min 25 seconds. After that I put in 3 drops lemon, 2 drops thieves, and raw honey to taste. Viola!! Thieves tea. Thieves boosts that immune system, and honey helps coat your throat. I LOVE honey so I also did a heaping spoon full of local raw honey just straight into my mouth. I've also been known to take a heaping spoon of honey and add organic cinnamon to it. YUM!!
