Top 5 Cold Season Must Haves!
So I've been a bit of a slacker lately, sorry about that. Part of the reason I've been so lazy lately is that I've constant bouts of allergies and colds. :( But it's inspired my latest post, my top five must haves for cold season!
1.) Tazo Green Ginger Tea. The kind of tea isn't really that important, I've just been digging this one lately. The combination of heat and tannins is exactly what you need when you're feeling crappy. I also really like Tazo Zen tea (green tea with spearmint and lemongrass), and Celestial Seasoning's Peppermint Tea. Extra points if you add honey which I'll talk about more in 3!
2.) Emergen-C in Tangerine. This stuff is a life saver! Especially if you feel like you're about to get sick, or are concerned about getting infected by those around you. This gives you a quick direct dose of vitamin C, which does wonders for your immune system. Oh but personal preference, I only like the Tangerine flavor (NOT super orange) the others are sort of disgusting. But yay tangerine!
3.) THIS STUFF! I originally was recommended this by my aunt via Pintrest. It is a sore throat game changer. Step aside lemon honey cough drops, this Lemon Honey Ginger tea base is a million times better. It's tasty and cost effective, definitely check out the link.
4.) Kleenex Go Packs. You can usually find these in the check out aisle of target in packs of three. If you have allergies like I do, you know the importance of always having tissues with you. These are the perfect size for your purse or backpack, and are resealable.
5.) Bath and Body Works PocketBac hand sanitizer. I work with people, and money. I take the bus and rail. I share a house with children. These all mean that regular sanitation is my only hope for not being constantly sick. These are cheap and come in a variety of scents. My favorites are the fresh lavender, and Warm Vanilla Sugar, but seasonal ones like this Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin are fun. (Also twisted peppermint! My absolute favorite!)
May the sickness odds ever be in your favor lovely readers! What's your go to when you're feeling ill?
