RECIPE OF FRAGRANT ELIXIR (preparation time 5 minutes)
1 bay leaf
3/4tsp black pepper
1 tsp cinnamon 3/4tsp
1 tsp dried ginger (or grate fresh ginger in case you are asthmatic)
1 tsp freshly grated turmeric
1 star anise
1tsp honey(preferably local)
250ml choice of your milk
For added respiratory support, add 1 teaspoon of ghee to your hot milk.
1. Firstly we recommend to boil 2 tsp of the spices with 60ml of water for a few minutes, then let it sit for 5 minutes
2. Bring milk and concoction to medium heat and gentle simmer for 5 minutes stirring frequently. If the milk becomes foamy, lower heat quickly or remove completely. Milk easily boils over the side of the pan when it gets too hot. It should look shiny on the surface with tiny bubbles.
NOTE: In order to digest milk properly, one should avoid drinking cold milk right out of the refrigerator. Milk should be brought to a boil. Allow the milk to foam up, and then bring the heat down so the milk is on a slow boil for about 5 to 10 minutes. Heating the milk changes its molecular structure so it is much easier for human consumption. All in one, this FRAGRANT ELIXIR will reduce any mucus-causing side effect.
3. Serve it with local honey.(if you can get your hands on some native bee honey!!! – to find out how CLICK HERE) Remember never use honey in boiling liquid!!!!
ps..Read only, if you want to start a conversation on milk…Milk should be organic, whole and non-homogenized. Homogenized milk is very difficult to digest and can easily clog the finer channels of circulation. It is probable that milk that is not certified organic may contain rBGH. These are hormones that artificially increase milk production in the cow. The only way we know to avoid rBGH is to purchase organic milk, because currently the FDA does not require labeling on milk products that may have come from cows injected with the hormone. Cow’s milk is considered to be the best, but goat milk is fine to use too.
