Hello I’m Kami, Welcome to Living Awareness!

I believe every family needs to have someone on board with a working knowledge of natural remedies if you want to take care of your family’s health for real.

When I was growing up, natural remedies was not a mainstream concept like it is now, in fact, you are going to be surprised that I never even heard the word natural remedy until I moved out of the house!

In my early 20’s I met someone by chance that told me about holistic health and herbal medicine. I wondered why nobody had talked to me about it before and had a voracious appetite to learn everything I could.

Now, 30 years later I've helped thousands of people demystify the world of herbal medicine and become empowered in using herbal self-care in their home to prevent illness, take care of common ailments and protect their health naturally.

For 20 years I've had a clinical herbal practice connecting people with plants and their wellness. I've developed and taught herbal curriculum for UCSF School of Nursing and the Integral Health Master’s Degree Program at the California Institute of Integral Studies.

Stick with me! You’ll learn awesome herbal self-care, get inspired to be more self-sufficient in your health care and nourish a deep love for the herbs and how to use them, knowing you are doing the very best you can to care for your wellness.

Wish I knew about this recipe years ago! Thanks for the great info!

I will definitely be giving this a try and keep on hand, sometimes when allergies are bad I feel like putting a hose up me nose and just let in run into a bucket it gets so bad.

Can’t wait to try this! I often get lots of nasal drainage esp. in the mornings. Also, sneezing along with it at times. Since I also get chilled easily, I’m hoping this will keep me warmer.

Honey should be added to “warm” water less than 140 degrees. High heat destroys beneficial properties. Buy raw local unheated honey!


Thank you for this wonderful recipe. I heard you mention that this is not really a remedy for children under 8, is there a way to make this an effective decongestant for kids under 8? Our whole family suffers from allergies.


thank you ! Can I share on my fb too?


Is it OK to make your different recipes without honey or other sweetener? Cancer doesn’t need and other conditions don’t need it.

Oh boy, I gave this recipe to my son and when he called me he said that it was thick and really hard to drink. I questioned him and guess what, he didn’t read the add 1 tsp – 1tbs to a cup of warm water, he seen the ingredients that included the warm water and added that to the honey mixture and drank that!OMG do you think this will harm him? He also gave it to his wife who is nursing their 2 month old daughter. Maybe you should not have the 1 cup of warm water in the… Read more »
