Delicious Warming Drinks For Skin & Body!

It’s been a little chilly lately so rather than drinking coffee or hot chocolate I’ve been making brews of cinnamon quills, ginger and cayenne pepper along with ginger tea.

Coffee keeps me and hot chocolate doesn’t help the kilos that are creeping on!

Plus the above flavours are yummy.

All you need to do is steep the ingredients in boiling water. The ginger is super easy and it ginger warms your insides naturally.


GINGER: ginger is famous for helping with nausea and morning sickness, and there’s some evidence it may aid the discomfort of arthritis, period pain, coughs, dizziness and bronchitis too, but with these sorts of studies not enough information is there so often-times it’s still classified as anecdotal.

However, some studies show that 1g taken an hour before surgery reduces nausea and vomiting during the first 24 hours post-surgery.

Always check with your doctor though as some schools of though believe there are also possible risks with it.

According to ayurvedic principles ginger is good for those with depression as it’s warming and depression is a cool disorder.

The following doses have been studied in scientific research:

  • For morning sickness: 250 mg ginger four times daily.
  • For post-operative nausea and vomiting: 1-2 grams powdered ginger root one hour before induction of anesthesia.
  • For arthritis: Many different ginger extract products have been used in studies. The dosing used differs depending on the product taken. One ginger extract (Eurovita Extract 33; EV ext-33) 170 mg three times daily has been used. Another extract (Eurovita Extract 77; EV ext-77), which combines a gingert with an alpinia, 255 mg twice daily has also been used. Another ginger extract (Zintona EC) 250 mg four times daily has also been used.


There’s also some (quite loud) murmurings about ginger being helpful with cancer, diabetes prevention and gout, but you will definitely need to talk to your doctor about that.

And, on the downside, ginger does interact with some drugs such as heart meds, anticoagulants and anti-inflammatories so once again best to check with your doc.

CAYENNE PEPPER: helps boost the metabolism and circulation, detoxes, cleanses and helps increase alkalinity. An alkaline body is a healthy body.

Here’s some other benefits according to globalhealingcentre.com

1. Anti-irritant: sore throats, upset stomachs, irritating coughs

2. Anti-cold and ‘flu: it breaks up and removes mucus

3. Anti-migraines: the perception of pain is lessened

4. Pro-digestion: increases enzyme flow and the production of gastric juices

5. Joint pain reliever: it’s high in capsaicin which sends chemical messengers from the skin into the joint, offering relief for joint pain

6. Anti-toothache: protects against tooth and gum disease

Here’s how:

Simply grate some ginger and pop it into a tea infuser. You can add a sprinkle of cayenne pepper, some lemon juice and cinnamon if you’d like to.
