My new favorite healing tea is a fiery brew of magical & medicinal deliciousness!
I call it my “Holy Fire Healing Brew”.
First, I boiled fresh chopped turmeric and ginger (about 1/4 c of each) in about 6-8 cups water.
Singing to the brew, I infused it with my magical intentions until it reached a rolling boil. You can also do this by holding your hands over the brew while it cooks and sending your intentions through the palms of your hands.
Some individuals prefer to pray over each herb prior to adding them to the pot. Every way works, I have discovered. Let your intuition guide you as you create your magical medicine.
After boiling for a few minutes, I poured the brew (using a strainer) into my favorite tea cup, then added freshly squeezed lemon juice (1/4 lemon per cup) and raw honey. (Note that the longer you boil the herbs, the more medicine you will extract from them.)
Working with the energies of fire and water, I restore balance to opposing forces, within and without.
This recipe can be used to help reduce inflammation in the body, as a pain reliever and for healing. I make enough in a single batch to drink throughout the day. Drink hot or cold.
It is a delicious spicy pick-me-up that is perfect for the fall season!
