Magical Ayurvedic Chai for winter coughs colds & flu

Being aware of the seasonal changes as part of our daily life is one step closer to knowing our true nature. As we wind our way through Autumn and into winter over the coming months its important to consciously make the necessary changes in our routines to prepare and support our physical and emotional bodies for the transition.

By not being conscious of this transition many of us will fall pray to the all familiar cough cold sore throat or flu. Take note, this is the body's way of telling you that you have not given it enough support and it is going to make you take notice by offering up some physical symptoms.  Good on you body!!

Here is a magical herbal chai remedy to get you back on the straight and narrow:

Ingredients:      20 crushed basil leaves; 6 slices of grated ginger; 1 teaspoon crushed black pepper; 1-2 tablespoons jaggery or palm sugar or rice syrup (to taste); 1.5 litres boiling water

Method: Place all ingredients into a thermos flask. Allow to sit for 1-2 hours. Sip 100 mls every hour throughout the day. Repeat entire process for approx 4-5 days or until symptoms are cleared. 

Note this is a medicinal chai and not to be taken for prolonged periods.

Be well xx
