It’s June in Toronto. And the morning temp is still 13C! The tricky thing with this type of weather is – what do I wear? However, to be honest, I know something’s going on because my nose is running. This could also be allergies. However, I’m still wearing long gloves when I’m riding – even today at 19C!

The best remedy RIGHT AWAY, is to warm up the inside of the body to combat both the cold and the wind. Tangerine peel is your bestest, bestest Chinese herb for this.
