A Healing Cup of Mustard Tea

The winter chill can certainly be invigorating and fortifying but sadly, it also ushers in the season for coughs, colds and throat infections. Here is a simple, natural and highly effective way to fight back – with a cup of Mustard Tea.

Take around 300 millilitres of water in a pan and bring it to a boil. Once the water starts boiling, add a teaspoon of black mustard seeds. Continue boiling for another three minutes, and then turn the flame off. Let the water cool a little till it can comfortably be drunk – like a cup of tea.

Strain the contents into a cup and add a teaspoon of cold-pressed Mustard Oil. Stir to mix well. Now drink it down like a cup of tea. You can sip it slowly and let the liquid run gently down your throat – but don’t let it get cold. It’s important to have it warm.

Some people get equally good results by gargling with this warm mixture instead of drinking it. You could try that as well, especially if you don’t like the taste.

Whichever way you choose to use it, this home-brewed Mustard Tea is a great way to soothe your throat. Cold-pressed Mustard Oil has powerful infection-fighting and anti-inflammatory properties and you can leverage these to protect your throat all through the cold winter months.
