For natural, reliable cough relief, try a tea recipe recommended by Tieraona Low Dog, M.D., director of education at the University of Arizona’s Program in Integrative Medicine. It features thyme, which alleviates chest congestion and supports respiratory function, along with throat-soothing honey, sage, and vitamin-C-rich lemon.
1. Pour hot water over 2 teaspoons organic lemon rinds, 1 teaspoon sage, and 1/2 teaspoon thyme. (Dried or fresh herbs can be used.)
2. Set your Zen Timer with Brass Gong for 15 minutes. Cover and steep for 15 minutes.
3. Strain tea, then add juice of 1/2 lemon and 1 tablespoon honey.
4. Drink two to three cups daily for cough relief.
“The Zen Alarm Clock & Chime Timer’, uses soothing acoustic chimes that signal it’s time – gently and gradually.
Rather than an artificial recorded sound played through a speaker, the Zen Clock features an alloy chime bar similar to a wind chime. When the clock’s alarm is triggered, its chime produces a long-resonating, beautiful acoustic tone reminiscent of a temple gong.
