  1. Hi Krystal, this is perfect timing! We can’t shake this cold and cough, so need some cold busting super elixir for sure! I was just wondering how long will it keep in the fridge. Also, are the limes essential, or can you substitue lemon? Thanks – and gorgeous photos, by the way! Rita

    • Hi Rita this should keep in the fridge for at least a month maybe more. All of the elements are high in antioxidants which will prevent it from going ‘off’ You can replace the limes with more lemons yes. Limes just give it a more ‘tropical’ flavour.. 🙂 Get well soon!

  2. Well done Krystal, good job! A great home remedy, with the best ingredients, to boost immune system! Love this! 🙂

  3. I am making this today… We definitely could do with some immune boosting. Love the ingredients 😀 Hope the kids will love it as well.

    • Thank you Soja! I think they’ll like it. The cinnamon and honey do a real good job of masking the other flavours. If you try it as is and they don’t like it, make a batch minus the garlic and see how that sits with them.

  4. Perfect Krystal! Will make the elixir soon. So far we all have been lucky no one got sick yet. But winter is far fro being over here in MA.

  5. Hi Krystal,
    It’s getting to be that time of year again! I am not a big essential oIl user, but I have some. I was wondering if you know much about them and if you could substitute either the lemon or lime (I know you need some liquid to mix this together) with the essential oil. Or use all the juice and substitute the essential oils for the ginger and/or cinnamon? Thanks! – I love your site!?

  6. Hi
    I see all the positives in all of your “potions”, but I don’t see the full recipe. How much of what, goes into making these? Is there. Site for this?

    • Hello Ann, I’m a little confused by your question. All ingredients and measurements are in the recipe section at the end of the post.

  7. Hi Krys,

    Just made this elixir last week as I actually got the cold. As I am still nursing I didn’t want to take any medication at all but still needed something! And this was the best thing I have done cause the cold got through whithin 3 days no kidding!! Clean out everything so quick I couldn’t believe! Usually with medication it always lasted a week…(!) so thanks for this tresure elixir love it a lot!! Tastes really good too!! (Could eat the whole bottle at once….?) but yes, I took 3 tbl spoon a day…

    • So happy to hear the elixir worked for you Barbara! You can continue to take it once a day to build up your immune system. Wishing you a healthy bug free winter! ??

  8. I did your elixir recipe last night. I had the flu for three days prior to reading the article. I did not have lemon. I had sour oranges and i said what the heck, so i went for it. Besides, i couldn’t drive to the store. I woke up feeling different. the runny nose is gone along with the thick phlegm. I have to say it worked for me–back to work today!
