Ginger is famous for its various beneficial properties which include relieving nausea, dizziness, mucus, flu symptoms, menstrual cramps, migraines, and even helps cure athletes foot when used as a foot soak. Ginger helps calm stress, uplifts mood, and stimulates digestion. What could be better?

Here is an easy way to incorporate ginger into your day. Boil up a quick and soothing ginger tea! All you need is ginger + water, and to make it even more delicious, add a squeeze of lemon and a touch of honey.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2-1 inch of ginger root, sliced thinly (you can keep the skin on)
  • 2-3 cups of water (depending on how strong you like it)
  • honey, as much you like
  • lemon, as much as you like

Directions:

Place sliced ginger into a pot, add water then bring to a boil. Let gently boil for 5-10 minutes. Add honey and lemon, then pour tea into your mugs. You can re-boil the ginger slices for 2-3 more batches of tea.

    Obsessed with fresh ginger! Freeze it in 2 inch cubes so that it’s easy to plop straight into your tea mug with your raw honey and fresh lemon 😉 Ahhhhhh..
