Cloves: for the nervous system
Cinnamon: for the bones
Black Pepper: blood purifier
Cardamom: for the colon
Milk: aids the assimilation of the spices and avoids the irritation to the colon.
Black Tea: unify all of the ingredients, and resulting in a new chemical structure that makes this tea a healthful drink
You can also include slices of fresh ginger root, especially when you are recovering from the cold or flu, or just want some extra energy!
My passion is to inspire people to see their true Self, their true potential, and the gifts they were born with so they can share them with humanity. It is how we can create a perfect picture of life on the planet Earth, our home. Because every human being is the perfect piece of the puzzle, that is equally needed for the picture to be complete.
