Supplies

Fresh Organic Ginger Root
Local Honey
Fresh Organic Turmeric Root
Double boiler (or jar for solar infusion) (roots and honey in top pan, water in the pan below to heat the material gently)
Fresh Ground Black Pepper

Directions:

Grate 1 tablespoon each of Ginger and Turmeric root and about pinch of fresh ground black pepper.
Place in the top part of your pan and pour between ½-1 cup of honey over the material. (This depends on how strong you like it)
In the bottom pan put water to heat so that you won’t overheat your honey and roots. (if you use solar infusion just add to a jar and keep in sun and check it)
Let sit on slow heat for a few hours or so.  (I don’t time it I just check it)
Strain and put in a clean dry jar and put it in the refrigerator. Do not heat your honey up too much or it will negate the raw effects this is very low temperature.

Uses

I use this a few times a day (just about ½ a teaspoon) for minor aches and pains, joint stiffness (stiffness that sometimes comes with winter for me personally), or allergy flare-up (right now I have 2 cats visiting so it’s helping with my allergies. A little in your tea for flavoring is very nice.  Before meals is lovely (you can just eat a little and help with digestion. Anytime or anywhere you may want to help with any kind of inflammation. (Generally just a good thing to take daily too because it is great for general health).  Too many uses to list here.  :
