These were all plant-based potions you may have grown up with but here’s what I did every couple of hours:
• Fresh lemon juice, raw honey, hot water
• Fresh sliced ginger root, raw honey, hot water
• Oregano oil (4 drops under tongue)
• Airborne Effervescent Tablets (one every 4 to 6 hours)

And along with the home remedies of plant-based elixirs that quickly helped heal my cold, I laughed when I realized all this was connected to the themes of magic potions that was a big part of the movie Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince!

This exciting chapter is filled with magical moments, humorous scenes and strong dramatic performances by Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Tom Felton, Michael Gambon and Alan Rickman.
