I’m sharing with you a remedy that has saved my life more times than I can count. I posted this recently in a blog and everyone was very intrigued.
As we embrace the approach of the chilliest months of the year, I’m excited to share not one, but two versions of my Immunity Simmer Pot. They are exceptionally fantastic at this time of the year when cold and flu are buzzing all over the place! This soothing remedy emerged from a time of discomfort and turned into a source of warmth and wellness for me.
Last November, I found myself grappling with Covid for the second time. As many of you know, it’s not a walk in the park. During those tough days, my kitchen transformed into a sanctuary where I concocted a special tea – an ‘immunitea’, if you will – that not only soothed my weary body but also resonated with so many of you on Instagram. To my surprise, this humble brew I created for some personal relief went viral!
Since then, I’ve been experimenting with different variations of this comforting tea and I’m eager to share these creations with you. As we venture into the coldest months of the year, I hope these versions bring you as much comfort as they brought me.
Simmer Pot #2
I’ve seen countless discussions and concerns about whether this blend is beneficial or harmful. While I’m no Ayurvedic practitioner or nutritionist, I stand by the age-old remedy that millions have trusted for years. A simple mixture of hot water and honey has been a soothing balm across cultures and generations, especially when battling a cold or flu.
However, there’s wisdom in being cautious about how we mix these two. I learned that pouring boiling water directly over honey can break down its beneficial properties. That’s why I now let the water cool for about five minutes before adding the honey, ensuring that its healing essence is preserved.
For those who’ve been asking about where to find the ingredients or specific types of honey I use, I’ve got you covered. This is the brand that I use specifically for my simmer pots.
Simmer Pots the perfect addition to any kitchen especially for those looking to infuse their home with natural aromas and drinking an elixir of health benefits. These pots are often filled with a blend of fruits, spices, and herbs, that gently release their fragrance into the air as they simmer, creating a welcoming and therapeutic atmosphere. The ingredients used in simmer pots, like cinnamon, ginger, and citrus fruits, not only emit a comforting fragrance but also bring with them an array of health benefits, such as improved digestion, enhanced immune function, and anti-inflammatory properties. The pot in particular that I have been using is this one from Kinto many of you asked about it and it’s without a doubt the cutest and most functional one I’ve found!
These simmer pots are my go-to remedy for staying healthy during the cold season. Each ingredient plays a crucial role in boosting my immunity and providing comfort. The first version is a harmonious blend of autumnal fruits with warming spices, while the second pot introduces a citrusy twist with the zest of orange and lemon, coupled with the distinct flavours of star anise and mint. So regardless of your reasons; if you’re feeling under the weather or just looking for a natural health boost, I highly recommend giving one of my Immunity Simmer Pots a go. They are a delightful way to nurture your body and a true testament to the power of natural ingredients and their healing properties.
Let’s get simmering and enjoy these comforting, healthful drinks!
