Classic recipe

Lemon juice and honey

To prepare the mixture, you’ll need 1 kilogram of lemons and 0.5 kg of honey. It’s better to use the whole fruits, not only the juice – this way, you’ll get more vitamins.

Citrus fruit should be washed in tap water, and the skin should be poured with boiling water – it will also be used for the remedy.

Cut the fruit into pieces, or mince them. Remove the remains of pips from the mash, because they have a bitter taste.

After that, honey and lemon mass are mixed to a homogenous state and put in a glass jar. Close the cover and leave it in the fridge for 3-4 days.

Take 1 tablespoon a day drinking up with tea or warm water. To boost the effect of the mixture, doctors recommend adding a finely cut piece of ginger (about 2 cm). When you treat cold or flu, you can take up to 3 tablespoons of remedy a day. If you suffer from a cough, take it 4 times a day mixing with 1 teaspoon of the remedy with warm water.
