I just made the water luke warm to be raw (I hope that's right) I think this is good to make the body alkaline.

Great! This is a nice healthy and soothing beverage just like my German Oma used to make, she added a dose of honey to hers. Thanks for the memory, Swedish Chef!

This recipe is just the thing when you have a sore throat, beginning of a cold, or just having one of those days when you feel a little peaked, or having senior moments:). Soothing and ever so good. It stops a cough without using any drugs too. I usually add 2 teaspoons liquid honey to mine. Ahhhhh.

It's so good to see this recipe posted here! My Mum used to make this drink for us when we were sick (recipe passed down from my Nan!), except with the addition of honey. Warm water with lemon is also a very good natural body cleansing and detox drink, so it can be enjoyed even when not sick! Thank you so much, The_Swedish_Chef, for reminding me of this recipe!

I just made some yesterday! It's perfect when you want something hot to drink but are not in the mood for tea or coffee. You do not have to feel under the weather to enjoy this. It's a great natural diuretic too!

This is exactly what my Grandmother used to do for us when we were sick, too! Her variation on this recipe was the addition of honey. It was very soothing on a raw scratchy throat. I highly recommend this recipe for all your aches and pains this coming cold and flu season. Thank you Swedish Chef for reminding me of my childhood.

I've never tried just the lemon juice, but I add 1-2 tsp of honey. Great to cure a cough that won't go away.
