All-Natural Essentials to Help Combat a Classroom Cold

It's that time of year, right? Kids are coughing and sneezing left and right and you feel like there's no way to escape the nasty germs. You've worked hard all year to boost your immune system and fight it off but inevitably the classroom cold has finally caught up to you. We all know that prepping for a sub is more work than just taking a sick day, so how can you kick your cold quickly with natural remedies? Here are some all-natural essentials that I keep in my pantry throughout the school year!

Warm honey and lemon juice
This is one of my favorite quick and natural remedies for a sore throat! Just mix some honey (I recommend local honey if possible) and lemon juice and heat up for about one minute in the microwave. Sip on it and you'll immediately notice a soothing relief! This is great first-thing in the morning and right before bed. You can also try boiled ginger and honey for some awesome benefits.
