With flu season in full swing, we all do our best to avoid those pesky sniffles and coughs.  We’re mindful to take good care of ourselves by washing our hands, working out and nourishing our bodies with chia (of course!), but sometimes it’s just not enough and we get run down.  So when those winter colds get the best of you, we have just the thing to put you on the path to feeling better; a simple DIY home remedy!
