National Australia Day, bottled water and the cold and flu season

Today, January 26 is National Australia Day (at least in Australia it is!)

This day commemorates the arrival of the First Fleet at Sydney Cove in 1788 and the proclamation at that time of British sovereignty over the eastern seaboard of New Holland.

Although it was not known as Australia Day until over a century later, records of celebrations on January 26th date back to 1808, with the first official celebration of the formation of New South Wales held in 1818. It is presently an official public holiday in every state and territory of Australia and is marked by inductions into the Order of Australia and presentations of the Australian of the Year awards, along with an address from the governor-general and prime minister.

On 09/26/09, hundreds of people marched through the picturesque rural town of Bundanoon to mark the first day of its bottled water ban by unveiling a series of new public drinking fountains. Such a smart move, knowing that bottled water is just tap water anyway ...

And Australians know the wonders of Lemon Myrtle, one of our best selling herbal tisanes and the perfect answer to the cold and flu season which will soon be peaking. Lemon myrtle is a plant grown in Australian and enjoyed as a beverage, a seasoning and can also be used as a insect repellant or antiseptic.

For general wellness, we recommend one cup a day. If ``something's going around'', two cups a day. And if you are already not feeling well, three cups back to back as soon as possible.
Usually $3.00 per ounce we'll have it on sale for the rest of the week at $2.50 per ounce.
Drink ... and be well!
