Amazing Crock Pot Tea

Picture yourself cozied up by a crackling fire. Avoiding the outside cold, and enjoying a warm mug of something. A cup of amazing, really, in fact your whole house smells amazing. That is because this delicious tea is a crock pot tea that has been warming for days.

Ok, now I must be perfectly honest. It’s not really tea at all, it’s really made of only spices and water, no tea leaves or bags (yay!) This one is great I promise, and super easy. The perfect drink for holidays, get together’s or to just keep warming in the crock pot during cold and flu season. All you gotta do is dump ingredients in a crock pot and let ‘er go! What I love is that those ingredients are amazing health packed, germ fighting, naturally flavored, herbs and spices. Credits for this amazing recipe go to a friend, when I heard the ingredients my health-nut little ears perked right up, and rightly so, this is an amazingly healthy winter drink!

Ready- here comes the healthy stuff

  • Ginger- one amazing root. Packed with enzymes that reduce inflammation, help repair joints and tissue. Ginger is amazingly helpful with stomach issues and nausea. Ginger is also a warming herb/ spice that is known to increase circulation and especially to the pelvic regions helping with reproductive issues in both men and women.
  • Cinnamon- Also a warming herb/ spice that improves circulation. Cinnamon also is very respected for stabilizing blood sugar levels and aiding a sluggish digestive system.
  • Clove- A power packed herb/ spice, this one is the motherload. Yes it has a wonderful aroma that we love in the winter time. However it is also is a all-purpose remedy. Clove is an Anti for all things bad, Anti-viral, Anti-microbial, anti-bacterial. Most all sicknesses can be warded off with clove, which makes it amazing in the winter. Clove is stimulating to the mind making for improved memory and is known in some parts of the world as an aphrodisiac.

(on a side note this teas may be helpful at baby-making, so if that’s not the goal WATCH OUT! this stuff is that healthy!)
