Genevieve and I just returned from hosting a positively wonderful Wellness Retreat at the iconic Castle Hot Springs Resort. We had amazing participants that were both inspiring and fully engaged. What a treat.
As one of the breakout sessions, I led a Seasonal Botanical Kitchen class where we discussed may common herbs and spices used for winter wellness. I will be posting many of those very easy recipes and a bit about each herb.
Let’s start with a delightful Fresh Ginger Lemon Tea (technically a tisane)
Ginger root is such a wonderful, pungent addition to your winter wellness regimen. It is Aromatic, anti-inflammatory, carminative, analgesic, antimicrobial
