Drink this Oil of Oregano Wellness Shooter when you first feel a cold coming on. It may help reduce the severity of your symptoms and boost your immune system.
If you've ever taken Oil of Oregano to fight off a cold, you know two things:
- it tastes awful
- it works.
Make it more fun with this Oil of Oregano Wellness Shooter! It's made with lemon and honey (remember when your mom gave you that when you were little?) along with fresh ginger and cayenne, all ingredients that are touted to help fight off the common cold.
This little shooter glass full of immune-boosters is much more fun to drink than taking those foul-tasting drops! While you can still taste a little of the oregano flavour at the end, finishing it off with an apple slice cleanses your palate and gives you a little extra Vitamin C.

my ginger went bad. can i use ginger powder?
Hi Sara, Yes--fresh ginger would be better for you, but ground ginger still has many health benefits! Hope you're feeling better soon!
Hi Add a teaspoon of dry chicken stock
My 18 year old daughter is at university and felt a cold coming on. She told me about an immune booster drink at a fresh pressed juice bar that does wonders and that all the kids in residence buy to ward off colds. My husband has a cold so he decided to try one of those immune booster drinks. He came back with a little bottle that he paid $5 for. I was aghast at the price and googled your recipe - made it for pennies with ingredients from my kitchen. Hubby said the only difference was that this one is thicker and not as spicy as I used turmeric instead of cayenne. So, thank you for this recipe. Now, I just have to get my daughter to make it from scratch rather than shelling out $5/day!!
And hubby says it tastes just as yucky thanks to the oil of oregano!!

Louise--you made my day! So happy to hear that my recipe worked for your hubby! And yes--that oil of oregano is strong stuff, but it works for me!
I'm cured! 🙂

Oil of oregano is powerful stuff! As I said, it tastes awful, but it works. This recipe just makes it a little easier to take it. Glad you're feeling better!
I felt a cold coming on this weekend and wanted to take oil of oregano but it DOES taste AWFUL. I remembered your recipe for this wellness shot. It was AWESOME. We didn't have a fresh lemon so I used some orange and lime along with bottled lemon juice. Thank you so much!

So glad you tried it!! It does make it a lot easier to get that stuff down, doesn't it! Hope you're feeling better. 🙂
My mom has told me about oil of oregano a few times but I've never tried it myself. This shooter sounds like a fantastic way to take it!
