Many have seasonal issues. There's anything from allergies to sinitis going on every fall, winter, and spring as in most places weather is a Rollercoaster and different pollens are released.
Your best things are often from nature when combating these issues. These are local honey and herbs and such provided by nature on your land. Often these herbs are seen as unwanted weeds... when they are far from it.
One of these cures is from trees, pine trees. Pine trees have needles. This is where the nutrition is. You want pine needs that are round and not flat. Flat pine needles are poison when we ingest them.
I take pine needles and cut the needles in small sections up to the part that id broan and connects to the limb. That has no nutrition and is not going to be pleasant in taste.
I put them in a pot of water and have it come to a boil. I let it boil for 5 to 10 minutes. The longer it sets or boils... the darker the color may become. The type of pine needle used will also determine that as well. The most popular pine tree needles are used from is the White Pine.
When it is done boiling... you strain the pot as you transfer the 'tea' into a container of your choice. We have glass jugs we have reused that we can make big amounts of tea in for our family of 6. We pour it into the jug and store it in the refrigerator.
You can add local honey 🍯 as it will carry local pollens and help give your system another boost. This is also a natural sweetener. Honey also is a thicker substance that can help sooth a sore throat.
#PineNeedleTea doesn't really have much flavor to it. This also depends on the type of pine tree. However, this makes the 'tea' easy to use in any drink. My kids have had it added to their hot chocolate or warm apple cider.
