Spicy Tea Brew

If you've caught a cold and you're feeling under the weather, make this spicy tea to calm, cleanse, soothe and heal your body. Spices have so many healing qualities and the warming one's have a legendary ability to clear closed up or stuffy nasal passages. Ginger is purifying, turmeric is anti-inflammatory, cinnamon is warming and pepper helps with bio-availability. This brew is an excellent bedtime drink, even if you are feeling perfectly healthy.
