My latest tea concoction is a mix of peppermint leaves, a chunk of ginger root, honey and a lemon slice to float on top. I think it helps somewhat, but the bits of candied ginger (beside the mug) is what I like best. I don't know if it is very medicinal, but it's tasty, sweet, and warm to my mouth.

Heffalump or snuffleupagus?
Whichever you prefer, that's what I've been feeling like for the past two days. Sneezing, sniffling, snuffling, achooo-ing -- all makes my very chapped nose feel large and snout-ish, like a Heffalump or a Snuffleupagus. I've been doing all I can to take this creature down.... vitamin C three times a day, going for walks in the fresh air, eating bits of raw garlic, taking hot baths, drinking mugs and mugs of herb tea, eating peppermint candies (to de-stuff), and coating my sore-from-blowing nose with Bee Butter or vitamin E oil. Napping is what I want to do, but it is difficult when one's nose is either stuffed up and won't breathe, or when it's running all over the pillowcase. O bother! (as Pooh would say)
