    The title was very deceiving. When I hear “natural”, I expect to see remedies actually made in nature, like lemon, ginger, St. John’s Wort (plant), etc. Most of these are artificially-made pills and syrups. HonesTea is sugary junk. Just buy tulsi tea from a reputable brand (I highly recommend Herbal Medicinals). Honey is considered a cure in Germany. Coconut oil (the raw, cold-pressed kind) is also supposed to be very good.

    And who in their right mind is going to spend $28 on water?!
