Ahchooo!!!

Gesundheit! Seems like most everyone is suffering from a cold, flu or allergies lately. Along with cold and allergies come distress. Distress to your skin, face and eyes. Here are a few great natural remedies to help you through the Fall seasonal yukkies and allergies. Try these and you’re sure to feel better soon!

Tip 1:  Relief For Allergy Eyes: Chrysanthemum tea. Soak eyes with this tea while reclined for about 15 minutes or as long as needed. If the tea is not bagged but is loose tea leaves,  cover eyes with a facial tissue and cover the affected area with the cool tea leaves after boiling.

Tip 2: For Achy Muscles Due To Cold and Flu:

Add these all natural ingredients to your next soak to soothe muscle aches and pains that often accompany being sick. 2 cups of Epsom salts with about a tablespoon each of ginger root, arnica, marjoram, pine needles, and thyme leaves added.

Soak in a warm to hot bath for 15 to 20 minutes and enjoy. Inhale the steam and clear your head as well

*Caution: Those with diabetes or high blood pressure, consult your physician before using epsom salts in your bath*
 

Tip 3: Dry Chapped Nose & Lips from “tissue trauma”?

Moisturize with Jojoba oil. Slather Jojoba oil anywhere you are dry & cracked. Available at any health food store, Whole Foods or Trader Joes 🙂

 

Recipe: Delicious Roasted Veggies Soup

This is a thick, creamy (using no actual cream), delicious soup!   The roasted veggies take about an hour but you can do this the day before to save time.  After the veggies are all roasted, it takes only a few minutes til soup’s on! 

The Veggies: 

  • 1 sweet potato or yam – sliced
  • 1 red pepper, cut in half and seeded
  • 1 green pepper  cut in half, seeded
  • 2 medium-sized potatoes – sliced 
  • 1 large white or yellow onion – cut into quarters
  • 5 cloves garlic – peeled
  • 1 large carrot – sliced 

The Marinade:

3 Tbsp of extra virgin olive oil, 1 sprig of fresh rosemary or 2 tsp  dried rosemary & 1 tsp thyme (can be fresh or dried) 

Mix all marinade ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.

Place all the vegetables in a large mixing bowl.  Toss with the marinade until coated.  Make sure you use a large mixing bowl to accommodate all veggies and have plenty of room to toss ‘em around and coat them completely. 

Place all of the vegetables on a large baking tray or stone.  Bake at 350 degrees for approx. 1 hour or until vegetables are tender and soft. 

Place all your delicious veggies in a food processor or blender, add hot water or chicken stock to thin to desired consistency. Heat & Serve.  Add ground sea salt and pepper to taste. 

Enjoy!
