    ~SwoR~'s Note:

    We frequently boil this during the cold and flu season. We use it more as a prevention than a cure, but it can help to keep germs down and lessens the possibility of making other family members sick. It also smells great so it isn't a problem to keep it brewing. I put zero cook time because it isn't a set time and is up to the person how long they want it to brew.

    5. 5
      (I usually refill with water as needed and fresh ingredients once a day.) Notes: This can also be made and put into a tin can on heaters like your grandparents used to do or in a large tin can on a wood burning stove.
    6. 6
      All of these ingredients have healing properties that ("may"<—legal disclaimer) clean the air of viral and bacterial critters.

      It also"may" help to relieve some cough and sinus symptoms.
    8. 8

      I've only made this the one time, so I can't attest as to its air-cleaning or sniffle/cough-relieving properties. But I will say it was incredibly easy to throw all the ingredients into a pot, and it made the house smell WONDERFUL!!! I think I'll be using this recipe a lot!
