If you happen to spill turmeric on a white surface (this stuff can stain like nobody's business), try putting it out in the sun after washing it with warm water or using a little lemon and vinegar as a mild bleach.

For those days when you've braved the cold for a few minutes too long, we suggest a hot toddy. A hot toddy may be an old wives' tale in terms of its healing abilities, but with its warm water, lemon, honey, and a dram of whiskey, it can actually be incredibly comforting.

Lemon is packed with vitamin C and alkalizing properties, great for keeping your system in check and able to fend off sickness. Honey's antibacterials profile can help soothe a sore throat or bad cough and stop a nasty cold from getting worse. We decided to spice up our hot toddy with turmeric, too, to add another anti-inflammatory immune booster to the equation. The bourbon is actually something of an antiseptic—plus it adds a warming element and rich flavor to your toddy.

Feel free to make this toddy sans alcohol for a warm drink you can sip throughout the day!
