    Default Anti-Nausea Flu Cubes

    If you've got the flu you know how hard it is to keep anything down. Here are some herbal ice cubes you can make to help battle the bug.


    • 1 c. water
    • 1 peppermint tea bag
    • 16 floz/450ml cranberry juice
    • 1 teaspoon angostura bitters

    Make a mug of tea using 1 c. boiling water & 1 peppermint tea bag. Let steep at least 10 minutes. Add cranberry juice and bitters. Transfer the mixture to an ice-cube tray and place in the freezer until solidly frozen.
    To use, suck or chew up to 3 ice cubes each hour or rub on your lips.
    The peppermint is soothing and the bitters will help calm an upset stomach. Ice cubes are much easier to keep down than liquids and will get rid of nasty fever breath


    Caution Call your doctor if the vomiting lasts more than 24 hours or is severe.

    This one is definitely worthy of a ! Angostura Bitters is wonderful for settling the stomach, particularly in those who are acid-sensitive. This is a great idea and recipe, thanks so much for sharing!
    ~Enjoy!~

    It doesn't have enough alcohol in it to worry, there's more alcohol in cough syrup, besides alcohol burns off in hot liquids.

    I will have to research this thing called angostura bitters to see if it is safe for children. It would be great to give them a non-medicinal alternative to nausea.

    You could always leave out the bitters, for children, recovering alcoholics, or for anyone who simply wants to avoid added alcohol.
