This was included in an earlier post in the Medicine Chest but to make it easier to find we are now including it as a separate post in the Recipes category.
This is a recipe that I get most of my patients to make and use at the first sign of a cold or flu. It can be quite chilli hot, however, you can of course control that ‘chilli heat’ aspect of the mixture by reducing the quantity of chilli but do use some, see my post on the benefits of cayenne.
Please note that It is not really suitable for children under fifteen years old, nor for anyone with any active digestive problems such as ulcers.
Molly's Magic Mix

- Blend all the ingredients together in a food processor and store in the fridge
