Lemon-Honey Water

Wow. I feel like I have been gone for far to long. We took a week long family vacation back home to Idaho this week. It was fabulous to get away from the craziness of our lives lately. Being at our parents houses is so relaxing. I love the laid back vibe. The best part, running around in our bare feet outside on the softest grass ever!
One problem that we all experienced while we were up there though, the dry air. My husband and I were waking up every morning with sore throats and my little girl had a stuffy nose every morning. Who would have thought that Idaho would be more dry then Arizona?! To make a long story short, to help our throats we would whip up a batch of this drink every morning and night. It worked wonders and tasted really good! Who knew something so simple could help so much. Honey actually has great healing benefits to the body. My husband was telling me that in some areas they have even started using honey under bandages to help heal open sores. (I have not personally tried this and would definitely need to do a little more research before doing it!)

1 mug 3/4 way full of water
1 TBSP honey
1 tsp lemon juice

1. Heat your water to as hot as you like. The warmer the better because it will help soothe the throat.
2. Add honey and lemon juice and stir to combine.
3. Enjoy!

**Randi's Side Notes**
~ I happened to use fresh honey from the comb and it had the absolute best flavor ever. But any kind should be just fine.
~ I also would have preferred to use fresh lemon juice but we didn't have any lemons on hand so I always ended up using the kind you keep in the fridge. It worked fine.
