“Life Isn’t…

…about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.” ~Vivian Greene~

Or so the saying goes. You can substitute cold, snow or windchill for rain. Scents and tastes of the season will help keep you warm which ever chilly part of the world you are in: ginger and clove.

‘Tis the season for gingerbread cookies and houses. Ginger is also good for nausea, inflammation and colds. Drink some ginger tea to keep warm this winter.

Clove is often used in minute amounts in baking and cooking-particularly during the holiday season. A nice mug of mulled organic apple cider with some cloves is a fragrant beverage with some medicinal undertones. Clove essential oil has analgesic, antimicrobial and antiviral properties (amongst others) which makes it good for toothaches and fighting off colds.
