Crockpot Tea Ingredients
- 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 an 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 tea is full of traditional fertility herbs or spices, if baby-making is on the agenda give it a go. If not WATCH OUT! And don’t say I didn’t warn you 😉
