Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is a powerful and zingy-tasting rhizome/root to have as an ally. Known the world over as a primo digestive aid, ginger is a special spice that will wow you with its versatility and stimulating properties. Ginger tea is delicious hot or cold and great as a morning uplifter or as a stomach-soothing post-dinner digestif. People of all ages love ginger tea and enjoy its relaxing and refreshing zesty character. Ginger tea feels good if your tummy feels “off.” It’s also a great tea for the afternoon slump as its stimulating fresh flavor creates a feeling of focus in the mind. Ginger has been used for thousands of years to improve vitality and promote longevity.
Additions: Ginger tea is an especially soothing drink paired with honey and a slice of lemon when you’re feeling a scratchy throat, when your immunity is run down, or when you just want a very warming, satisfying, and tasty cup of tea.
Topical Care: Ginger tea’s warming and invigorating benefits can be used as a hair rinse and or bath/foot bath. Steep 2-3 tea bags for 5 minutes (covering your mug so that the medicinal aromas don’t escape), allow to cool, and rinse your hair. Don’t rinse out! For a foot bath or regular bath, steep 4-6 tea bags in a covered vessel for 5 minutes and add to your bath and enjoy.
