4 lemons, sliced thinly
1 cup ginger, julienned
1 cup raw honey
In a medium sized, glass jar alternately layer the ginger, lemon and honey resulting in around 4 layers.
Cover and stand for 2 hours + and the lemon will release it's juices and blend with the honey and ginger. Refrigerate and use as needed.
HOW TO USE:
--For a hot tea add one tablespoon of the mixture to recently boiled water
--For lemonade, add 1 tablespoon for every 2 cups iced or sparkling water
--For a sore throat, or upset stomach take 1 Tablespoon on an empty stomach as needed.
Why is this so GOOD?
--Lemons are rich in Vitamin C and other antioxidants that promote immunity and fight infection. They are a fantastic digestive tonic by stimulating digestive juices and cleansing the liver.
--Ginger stimulates circulation particularly in the abdomen and pelvic region, hence being so wonderful for nausea and stomach cramping. It too is a fantastic digestive tonic by encouraging the release of digestive juices.
--Honey has been documented for its use medicinally in Ayurveda medicine for over 4000 years. It is strongly antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and soothing making it one of the best all-round remedies nature has to offer.
