Wild Dispensary Hot tonics.
As the seasons change and we get closer to winter, adding more hot fluids into our daily routines can be a nourishing ritual.
Did you know that our restorative tonic range make wonderful hot herbal tonics?
Warming herbs such as cinnamon, ginger, star anise, and cloves are especially good in winter. Cinnamon stimulates circulation, and can aid digestion and immunity. Our immunity tonic is full of these spices and support the tonic's main ingredient of Elderberries- an immune-stimulant.
Ginger supports the immune system, can relieve arthritis pain, stimulate digestion, and help upset tummies all while warming the body. We use it in our Anti-Flam tonic. Turmeric is key to the inflammation support in this tonic and is better absorbed by our bodies with fat. So having it with a warm milk of your choice is a good option.
Come and see us at the Otago Farmers Market with your ‘Keep Cup’, or borrow one from the markets mug library for a hot tonic for only $5. Perfect for warming your hands on the mornings that are getting colder as well as getting some herbs into your system for your well-being!
Ruth’s favourite at the moment is the Anti-Flam with a touch of the Firecider. Soothing, warming and great for immunity.
