May we never again take one single breath for granted.
The air has been thick with wildfire smoke here in Northern California. Today I went to my Ayurvedic books for uplift and inspiration.
Here’s a simple Ayurvedic remedy that we can make at home to help support our overstressed respiratory system.
Slice a few pears (the more, the better).
Add fresh ginger, a few diced dates, some star anise, a cinnamon stick. I was out of dates (what?!?!) and used a bit of maple syrup instead.
Bring to a boil, then cover and let it simmer for 10-15min.
Half way through can add organic licorice root (I used a tea bag). Can also add fresh lemon juice at the end.
Eat the pears and drink the juice throughout the day. I like to drink it hot. It’s delicious!
May we all breathe easy soon 🧡
