Ginger is one of our favourite teas when the weather gets cooler. Ginger is a beautiful antibacterial, anti-inflammatory (due to phenolic compound gingerol) and has antioxidant effects. It is also very warming, can help relieve nausea and is detoxifying.
1 inch of grated ginger
1 lemon juiced
1-2tsp of raw or manuka honey
2 cups of water
Steep ginger in 1 1/2 cups of boiling water or simmer covered (so you don’t lose any of the volatile oils) for 10 mins. Add ½ cup of cold water, to reduce the temperature, as Vitamin C content is lost in temperatures above 70 degrees. Add lemon juice and honey to taste.

Rather than waiting until you’re hit with cold and flu symptoms, support your immune function now to ramp up it’s defence and have you more resilient on a continual basis. Modern living can lead us to low immune health. Stress, lack of sleep and exercise, and more time spent in doors can negatively affect our immune health. Similarly, inadequate nutrition and a high sugar intake contribute to decreased immune function. Thankfully, there are lots of healthy habits that you can adopt to support your immune health and help you stay well over the Autumn and Winter months.
To help you support your immune health we currently have a seasonal special, The Bare Immune Bundle.
