Allergy Relief Tea
6 cups filtered water
6- ¼ inch thick slices of turmeric root
6 -¼ inch thick slices of ginger root
1 cinnamon stick
3 Tbsp raw local honey (optional)
Place all ingredients, except the honey, into a saucepot and simmer over medium low heat for 25 minutes. Strain tea and stir in honey.
This tea is delicious hot or iced and with or without your favorite “milk”. I have also poured this hot tea over a chamomile tea bag (let this steep for 5 minutes) and sipped before bed to help with sleep.
The turmeric and ginger roots are great anti-inflammatory herbs, this will help reduce any swelling that your seasonal allergies are creating. The ginger also aids digestion and the raw local honey help tame seasonal allergy symptoms.
