Here is one of my favourite Ginger Lozenge recipes...with some secret "phytotherapist" tips!
You will need:
1/3 cup Fresh Ginger or 2 tablespoons Ginger tincture
3 or 1/3 cups Water
1/2 cup Honey
1/2 stick of Cinnamon
Pinch of Salt
Sprinkle of Arrowroot
Top Tip: For colds and flu that seem to be caused by bacteria use the tincture version of this recipe. If it seems to be a viral respiratory infection, use the fresh ginger version.
How to make ginger lozenges:
First, sprinkle arrow root powder over your silicon mold.
Bring 3 cups of water and 1/3 cup of fresh ginger to the boil and let it simmer until there is only 1/3 cup of liquid left.
OR Add 2 tablespoons of ginger Tincture to 1/3 cup of water and simmer until it is reduced to 1/3 cup of fluid.
Add 1/2 a cup of honey and 1/2 a cinnamon stick. Bring to the boil and add a pinch of salt.
Place the candy thermometer into the pot and wait until the temperature reaches 125C.
Pour the mixture into the silicon mold. Allow it to cool and then place it in the fridge until it has set and become hard.
This product is heat sensitive. Store in the fridge.
Do not give these lozenges to infants below 2 years.
Do not consume in large quantities if you suffer with heartburn or diabetes.
If no moisture is introduced to the storage container then these lozenges can last a long time.
