This morning I received this email and thought it would be a good way to start the cold and flu….or as last year ‘covid-19’ season….Here are three remedies that have been used for leterally thousands of years. You can find more great holistic remedies at The Sacred Science.

Ginger has an amazing history of being used for medicinal purposes. If my history serves me correctly Colombus was in search of short drug routes to what was then Persia and Euroasia and on his shopping list was cloves and of course a very long used spice used in medicine, cinnamon. Here is the information.

Hi Aaron,

Humankind has been living in harmony with the cycles and rhythms of the Earth since the dawn of time. Our ancestors weren’t able to simply turn up the heat in their homes or take a vacation to a warmer region.

They adapted to changing temperatures through their keen observation of the natural world, which included using particular herbs to keep the body healthy.

Today, I want to share 3 “go-to” herbs that have been used for millennia to protect and nourish you during the colder months.

3 Delicious Herbs For Fall And Winter Wellness

1) Ginger

Ginger was first cultivated and studied in Asia, but soon found its way onto trading routes with Europe. This is a timeless herb that offers countless healing abilities and was regarded by our ancestors as a “heal all.”

Ginger is potent, powerful and pungent — the perfect herb to help you stay vibrant during the darkest nights of winter. It is considered to be warming to the body and has specific healing effects that are very helpful this time of year, including:

  • Fighting infection and flu symptoms like sore throat, chills, and congestion
  • Combating pain and inflammation
  • Calming and healing the digestive system

There are numerous ways to incorporate ginger into your everyday life. Try easy things like:

  • A decoction (strong tea made by boiling the fresh root in water for an extended amount of time)
  • Natural ginger chews (can be bought at most grocery stores)
  • Adding it to cooking broth, seasonings or in baking

2) Cinnamon

Cinnamon is a pillar in Traditional Chinese Medicine that spread to Europe and Egypt. It was once valued as more precious than silver. But nowadays, it’s just another seasoning on the spice rack.

Though cinnamon is usually thought of as a culinary herb, it is very medicinal.

Like ginger, cinnamon has the ability to get the blood flowing and warm you up quickly. This warming quality is the spearhead for the rest of cinnamon’s healing qualities. It also:

  • Fights pain and inflammation
  • Boosts your immune system
  • Promotes proper digestive flow

Other amazing effects of using cinnamon are:

  • Lowering blood sugar
  • Holistic oral care

It is incredibly easy to integrate a healthy dose of cinnamon into your diet. Simple things like:

  • Drinking more chai tea
  • Putting drops of cinnamon essential oil into a glass of water
  • Mixing some into your honey jar
  • Brushing your teeth with powdered cinnamon

3) Clove

Clove was originally grown on the Spice Islands of Indonesia but was popularized when China traded it with the western world.

This powerful herb has rich volatile oils that:

  • Boost immunity by fighting bacteria, fungus and viruses
  • Loosen up tight muscles
  • Numb pain when applied topically
  • Open up the lungs and loosen up mucus

Clove is a very versatile herb that can be helpful to you in 3 different preparations:

  • Internally: brew a strong cup of chai tea
  • Externally: massage clove oil onto sore muscles
  • Aromatically: diffuse clove essential oil or boil cloves in a pot to humidify your home

I hope you find a treasure trove of winter wellness in the remedies above. Nothing warms the heart and lifts the spirit like the powerful traditions of those who came before us.
