Herbal infusions have been used around the world for thousands of years in both medicinal and recreational practices. Read on below for three commonly-experienced symptoms and the herbal infusions that can help heal them!
YOU FEEL SLUGGISH AND HEAVY.
Bounce back from a day of excessive eating and drinking with fresh ginger root. Add peeled and sliced ginger to a pot of water, boil for 10 minutes, strain, and sip.
For expedited results: Keep your meals small and light, or try fasting. Incorporate gentle movement, such as walks in nature, and stretching. Use detoxifying twists as you stretch to enhance your body's digestion and elimination. Finish the day with a warm bath and lavender essential oil.
YOU HAVE ACID INDIGESTION.
Combine 1 tsp. of cumin, 1 tsp. of coriander, and 1 tsp. of fennel with 6-8 cups of water. Boil for 10 minutes, strain, and sip.
For expedited results: Incorporate deep breathing. Find a quiet place to sit, close your eyes, and begin to breathe out of your nose. Relax your body by inhaling for a count of 2, holding for 1, and exhaling for a count of 4. As you continue to breathe, you may choose to increase breath lengths, always keeping your exhale 2x as long as your inhale. Also, chew your food thoroughly, and avoid eating 2-3 hours before bedtime.
YOU ARE CONGESTED.
Clear out your sinuses with lemon, raw honey, and hot water. Add the juice of 1 lemon and 1 tsp. of raw honey to hot water. Stir, sip, and soothe.
For expedited results: Avoid dairy products, take a steam, and use a neti pot. Don't have access to a steam? DIY by draping a towel over your head and positioning your face and neck over a big pot of hot water. Set up slowly and be careful not to burn yourself.
