With your intention, (calm, protection, health, healing) in mind gather the ingredients. Take a deep breath and release. Invite the compassionate spirits and begin.
Boil fresh water and make 2 – 3 cups of tea. If the plan is to add ice cubes when serving this drink cold, making double strength is also an option.
While still warm add the honey and stir to dissolve. It is always easier to combine honey with warm ingredients than cold ones. Once the tea has cooled down a bit add in the juice of 1/2 – 1 lemon per two tall glasses.
Adjust the volumes of each of the ingredients to suit your tastes. Store in the fridge until cold.
Note: If you have a summer cold, drink this as hot as possible to help ease the symptoms.
