During the holiday season if you find yourself battling a sore throat, nothing is better than a hot, soothing tonic. This lemon and ginger healing tonic contains vitamin C for an immunity boost, ginger to open up the sinuses, and magnesium to calm and relax the body. This drink is sugar-free and naturally sweetened with stevia from the Natural Calm, but you can also add raw honey for an antimicro- bial boost if extra sweetness is desired.
