As we were reminded in the Hymn in Praise of Herbs, herbs are very special and they support our existence in incredible ways. While all plants are quite magical, cardamom offers us balance & bitterness, in the best kind of way.
As I have mentioned before, the Vedas (which originate in India) are some of the oldest known texts in the world. These ancient collection of knowledge is divided into 4 parts, one of which is the Rig Veda. The Rig Veda is specifically dedicated to presenting wisdom in the form of devotional hymns. Not only were these hymns showing reverence to a higher power, but how that higher power manifests here on earth. More than 2,500 years ago, herbs were highly recognized for their majestic healing powers and we can still see them that way today.
The benefits of ginger and turmeric are incredible. Not only does this tea have to potential to boost your immunity & enhance your body's anti-inflammatory response, it will also help prepare your digestive fire (agni) to efficiently assimilate food into nutrients.
