How Can Honey & Spice Throat Coat Make You Feel Great?
Early SpringEarly Spring is a watery season full of dramatic shifts from warm to cool temperatures, often within the same day. It is a challenging time of year to stay balanced. A rainy or cold spring day could catch us unaware, unprepared, or in stubborn denial once 'spring fever' sets in. On such days, a deep chill compromises our immune system and could quickly lead to flu systems. Conversely, a warm spring day triggers a surge in the release of winter fats, thickening and congesting the blood. No matter what type of day, spring unearths a never ending flood of saliva and mucus.
Burning Up Spring Allergies & CongestionHoney & Spice Throat Coat is a quick and efficient way to help reduce spring congestion, regardless of the forecast. In this formula, turmeric, ginger and black pepper invigorate, warm, and circulate the blood. This has the effect of flushing fluids and drying them up. Invigorating the blood also tends to open up the lungs. Honey heats and breaks up mucus. It also provides a quick burst of energy. Its thick texture allows the healing spices to linger and coat the throat. Caution -this formula is strongly pitta provoking.
