[AlternativeAnswers] Seasonal Simmer: Christmas Blend


Good Morning!

Seasonal Simmer: Christmas Blend

Simmers are a special mixture of herbs and spices, which are combined into a blend or potion, created to bring the power of aromatherapy and intention into your life. They are also designed to capture the attention of those around you.

Based on folk remedies, grandma's recipes and the ingredients provided by nature, these simmers are recipes used to make your kitchen smell delightful. They can be used along with a "special intention" and later, can even be enjoyed as tea!

Christmas Blend

Used for: scenting the kitchen/any room with aromatherapy for the holidays, inviting Winter, warming a chill, tonifying the kidneys.

-Blend 4-8 cups of water with:
-3 cinnamon sticks
-8-10 cloves
-For a warmer, spicier concoction, add 4-6 slices of raw ginger or a tsp. of dried ginger.
Slowly simmer on the stove. Allow the smell to permeate the room.

Special Notes:

With each simmer you can:
-take advantage of their aromatic properties.
-say a positive affirmation, invoking words, a special prayer or give thanks.
-use them at the start of each season to give honor to yourself and your intentions for that season.
-as it cools, share, drink, these simmers as a tea.
-the health properties of these ingredients are appropriate for each season, relate to the internal organs and are associated by taste, temperature and color.
