My mother in law lives in Canada,she’s got a bad cough,once her daughter was in n.z and I don’t know from where she bought a bottle of Ginger Syrup and that cured her cough. Can you please tell me where can I buy this n.z made ginger syrup.

I don’t know exactly what ginger syrup your mother-in-law tried.  A ginger and lemon drink has good health promoting properties and when sweetened with honey you have a soothing drink that helps relieve cold and flu symptoms. Try our recipe for Lemon, Honey and Ginger Syrup.  If you don’t have easy access to lemons there are commercial version of this syrup available in supermarkets and health shops.

Alternatively you might want to try Lifestream Ginger Syrup. This is the closest I’ve found to the syrup you asked about.

Prevent dry cracked feet

April 29, 2010 Filed under Tip of the Day

If your feet are dry and getting cracked, find a piece of pumice on the beach and take it into your bath or shower.  When your feet are wet, add a little soap to the pumice and use it to rub the dry parts of your feet.  Repeat daily until the dryness and cracks have gone then repeat as needed, maybe weekly.  For really badly cracked skin, use a good body cream daily.
