Fight off the common winter cold and flu the natural way

  • Grape Seed Extract – provides antioxidants that boost your immune system! Put 5 to 15 drops in a small cup off juice. If using capsule, take 2 capsules, 3 times daily. NOTE:  Grapefruit Seed Extract should not be used during breastfeeding; also use caution if giving it to a child.
  • Catnip Tea- this is a really great home remedy for bring down a fever. I buy my catnip in bulk and brew it in a tea bag or strainer.
  • Hot Salt water- this may sound gross but trust me this really helps draw out the bacteria and provide a bacteria fighting environment
  • Apple Cider Vinegar- to help your body fight infection, cut through phlegm and ease a sore throat, sip a mixture of hot water, 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar and 1 tablespoon of raw honey. I am a big fan of this remedy.
  • Sinus Tea- brew black, green, or herbal tea. Add a pinch of cayenne pepper, 1 tablespoon raw honey, and juice half of a lemon. Mix well and drink tea as hot as you can to loosen mucus and soothe a sore throat.

NOTE: I did my research on these tea remedies before sharing them to make sure they were okay with you but I suggest if you have any questions or concerns to ask your Doctor.

2. Make Recycled Sweater Mittens

How cute are these mittens!!! The answer is very cute 🙂 and isn’t it nice knowing that these are recyced and homemade! I guarantee you will love these and your family also. They also make great presents for the Holidays and Birthdays

3.Waterproof Canvas Shoes with Wax

You won’t have to worry about staining your shoes this Winter if you use this hack! Your canvas shoes will be Winter ready as long as you follow this easy tutorial on how to waterproof canvas shoes with wax

4. Light up some candles

This hack will not only help you save money and electricity but will also add some heat to your home. It is also a great way to decorate your house for the Hoilday’s or create a nice relaxing space.

  5. Make Your Bike Tires Winter- Ready With Zip Ties

I can speak from experience when I say that biking in the winter can be a disaster so I opt to not bike 😦 BUT….. with this hack you won’t have to worry about the slippery roads!

 

6.  Putting A Layer of Tinfoil Against The Wall Will Reflect the Heat Back into the room

If you’ve got a wall-mounted radiator or heater, use this hack! This will help reproduce the heat into the room. Be careful mot to use anything else that can cause a fire!

 

7. Screw some screws on the sole of your shoes to keep you from slipping

The screws will help you with not slipping on the icy ground in the morning (that really hurts).

8.  If your car gets stuck in the snow, try putting kitty litter under the tires to gain some traction.

9.  To help clean the bottom of your car, run a lawn sprinkler under it for 30 minutes on a warmer day.

10.  Make your own winter windshield washer fluid from 2 quarts rubbing alcohol, 1 cup water, and 1 teaspoon dish detergent.

11.  Spray your car windows with a 3:1 vinegar/water mixture. This will keep ice from forming on your windows (though you will still have to remove the snow).
