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 that can be easily prepared at home to help battle the nasty bug that's running rampant through your home.
Make a very strong mug of tea using 1 c. boiling water & 1 peppermint tea bag. Allow the tea to steep for at least 10 minutes. Add cranberry juice and bitters, stirring well. Pour the tea mixture into an ice-cube tray and place in the freezer until frozen.
To use, suck or chew up to 3 ice cubes per hour.
The peppermint is quite soothing and bitters is well known to calm an upset stomach. The ice cubes are considerably easier to keep down than glassfuls of liquids and also works well to get rid of nasty fever breath, (I'm sure you moms out there know EXACTLY what I mean by "Fever breath!")
It goes without saying, but Call your doctor if the vomiting lasts more than 24 hours or is severe.
