Ward Off the Winter Ickies

Got Cold? Today Sharon reports on the natural remedy Simply Gargle (and read on for a chance to win some for yourself!):

“While Fall brings with it freshly picked apples, hot cocoa, and beautiful foliage, it also ushers in inevitable coughs, sneezes, and all kinds of mucous-y wonder. And while I used to reach for the heavy-duty cold remedies, I’ve found that often times the simplest remedies can yield the greatest relief. A couple of months ago I wrote about the Neti Pot, a fantastic nasal irrigation system that relieves many nasal ailments. In the same vein, I recently tried Simply Gargle, which happily stunted the onset of what I thought was going to be a full-blown cold.
Aptly named, Simply Gargle is a basic saltwater gargle infused with vitamin C and herbal extracts commonly used for preventing colds and promoting good health. Packaged in convenient single use tubes, Simply Gargle is a great product to carry around just in case you start getting that tingly feeling in your throat. When you are sick or on your way to getting sick, or if your nasal or throat passages feel raw, mucous membranes become irritated and fill with fluid and bacteria. As with the Neti Pot, Simply Gargle works upon salt’s natural ability to draw out this fluid from membranes. These simple remedies can provide a noninvasive and effective way to relieve sore throats and runny noses and ward off the wintertime ickies in a natural way.”
