Just the name, Zingiber Officinale promises a great surprise. But, it’s no secret that ginger works well for motion sickness. But, there’s must more to this rhizome than you think.
Ginger is one of the most ancient spices worldwide. It has become well-known for its health benefits, which include its ability to boost bone health, strengthen the immune system, increase appetite, prevent various types of cancer, improve respiratory conditions, aid in digestion, eliminate arthritis symptoms, reduce excess gas, enhance sexual activity, and relieve pains related to menstrual disorders, nausea, and flu.
Personally, I take ginger for nausea, and for stomach upset.
You can make ginger tea, but I much prefer ginger syrup. It’s so easy to make with just a few ingredients.
Making your own ginger syrup is easier than you think.
1/4 cup peeled, chopped fresh ginger OR 1/8 cup dried ginger
1 cinnamon stick, 6 inches or 1 teaspoon cinnamon chips (opt.)
1 cup distilled or filtered water
1/2 cup local honey
glass bottle (like this one)
You can double this recipe for even more syrup to cook with.
If this syrup is for children under 1, please use sugar instead.
