A great herb to build the immune system and fight bugs

Kate from Country Herbals Cottage Shop

I discovered how effective this herb is for myself last year. A wonderful herb to have on hand to fight colds/flu viruses etc
Anti Viral Olive Leaf Powder

Olive Leaf has anti-viral properties. (The Little Herb Encyclopedia - Jack Ritchason)

One qoute from google: Research suggests that olive leaf may be a true antiviral compound because it appears to selectively block an entire virus-specific system in the infected host. ... Remember, oleuropein is the active antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and antiparasitic component of olive leaf.

My own experience: Last year was the first full year without having cold/flu in my entire life (63 yrs). At first sign of symptoms, i took a tsp of powder in a little water or juice (its quite bitter) every few hours. Symptoms would disappear after each dose. Kate. Feb 20.

Tell us about the coronavirus lockdown champions in your community

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

We want to celebrate the unsung heroes who are keeping our country going through lockdown.

Frontline nurse Debra Larsen's life has turned into a "real whirlwind" since the coronavirus outbreak began.

She's been so busy setting up testing centres around the Waikato. and helping them run smoothly that she's barely seen her two teenage daughters.

Do you know a coronavirus lockdown champion who deserves to be recognised? Tell us about them in the comments below.

Let the games begin

The Team from Resene ColorShop Rotorua

Recreate a classic game in an unconventional format using Resene testpots to paint your own dominoes. Smooth rocks, like those found on the beach or in a river bed, work best for this project.

Take the kids out to search for ones that lay flat and are generally round or oblong in shape. If you don’t live near water, you should be able to get some from your local garden supply store.

Make the most of this weekend with this easy step by step project idea from Resene.

Find out how to create your own rock domino set.
