We are all exposed to winter sneezes and snuffles(sniffles). This wonderful tea will help you stay healthy! Adapted from The Great American Detox Cookbook, by Alex Jamieson. She made up this recipe to help her husband detox when he ate a fast food diet for a month and filmed it. It will help digest meals more fully and to boost immune systems. It has anti-depression ingredients, antiviral and antibacterial ingredients, relaxing ingredients and it tastes so yummy! The ginger is warming and an immune enhancer. The licorice root is antiviral, antibacterial, and fights depression. The cinnamon has digestive support, and is useful for diabetes. The parsley is a digestive aid. The lemon balm is relaxing and aromatic and the clove is warming and a digestive aid. Enjoy!
