Cinnamon and Ginger tea


In an uncertain world one thing can be sure… Stomach aches are awfull! They can make you feel uncomfortable in any position ( sometimes forcing you to sit upside down on your couch…) Using heating pads, or due to some grand advertising reflecting on the “upset stomach diarrhea” jingle leading you to using over the counter products like Pepto Bismal, pain medication, or  digestive disruptors like Imodium or ex-lax. The moral of the story is if you are here today looking for something to make you feel a bit better in the belly,  you have likely been suffering before and have tried alternative methods to heal you.

*I reccomend purchasing organic ingridients because I support the sustainable practice of organic produce and believe that those items have the purest health benefits. 

Today I will provide you with a recipe and some details on the ingridients for a educationally constructed elixir to ease your belly woes. 

As one who has a sensitive stomach I can assure you nothing has come to a more pleasant surprise to treating my series of issues like a warm delicious cup of this tea!

This tea can assist, relax, and comfort you from a variety of stomach problem causes 

  • over-eating
  • discomfort of period cramps
  • digestive issues like constipation 
  • after surviving food poisoning
  • recovering from a stomach flu*

You can have faith in this recipe because last Tuesday I got the stomach flu and the first thing I was able to consume was this tea and it eased my stomach right away!

I am glad that you have resorted to a natural method to ease that ache and discomfort because often times medications lead to nothing more than an eroded stomach lining and depressing bouts of constipation. Though this tea will temporarily and luxuriously make you feel better in the stomach, ceasing consumption of the medications or wrong foods you could be eating would be a superior method at alleviating your symptoms and preventing them from returning. 

What you will need

  • Whole Cinnamon Sticks
  • Ginger Root
  • Locally Harvested Honey
  • Water

Directions

Try your best to shave the skin off and cut open the ginger root. Slice the ginger to become about 1-2 cups of fresh ginger shavings.

  1. Bring a pot of water to a rolling boil and then add your cinnamon and ginger root.
  2. Lower heat to a simmer and allow the cinnamon and ginger to seap for 20 minutes. 
  3. Stir a heaping table spoon of local raw honey into the tea.
  4. Pour mixture into a glass container and either drink immediately or save for about a week! 
  5.     6. Be happy and healthy 🙂
