Despite it being a beautiful 80-degree end to the summer, the Homesteader Family seems to have caught a bad cold. Sniffles and snot, coughing and hacking, sinus pressure and pain, I HATE being sick! I understand that no one likes being sick, but there’s a measurable, active difference between “I don’t like this” and “I hate this”.
I knew I needed to shorten this period of misery and I was unsatisfied with the chemicals from the store. Thus I began searching and experimenting with concoctions and recipes from hither and yon. I read articles from the Internet, poured over old journals from gold rush miners, and even analyzed some Latin writing from Roman generals.
Finally, I succeeded in augmenting a cure that’s based on something French Voyageurs used to use when they were hundreds of miles away from civilization and didn’t have access to medicine. It’s a little mystical but don’t let that stop you from giving it a shot. It always gets me back on my feet and I thought I’d share it. Plus, in true Homesteader fashion, it’s 100% organic, free-range, and made from recyclable materials. Hippies rejoice!
