Turmeric :

Fresh Ground Tumeric from Organic Gurlz Gardens Fort Wayne IndianaAn antioxidant as well as anti-inflammatory, Turmeric is something that’s hard to beat.

Curcumin is liable for many of Turmeric’s anti – inflammatory properties.

From Organic Gurlz Gardens, my mommy Becca, has a few suggestions on using Turmeric.

One of the best healthy alternatives you can prepare is to make Turmeric tea.

  • Becca of Organic Gurlz Gardens Fort Wayne IndianaBring four cups of water to a boil.
  • Add one teaspoon of ground turmeric and reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Strain the tea through a fine sieve into a cup, add honey and/or lemon to taste.

Some people prefer to add a teaspoon of ginger along with the turmeric. While ground versions are more convenient, it’s worthwhile to experiment with freshly grated turmeric for a more vibrant flavor.

Cloves :

Cloves and Clove Oil from Organic Gurlz Gardens Fort Wayne IndianaIt is a celebrity in the herb world. Know for its Anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant uses, it  May also help muscle pains and arthritis pain. Cloves con­tain eugenol, a mild anesthetic use­ful for gum and tooth pain, and sore throats. Clove also assists with asthma and bronchitis. Per­haps the most distinguished pro about it is Cloves elim­i­nate intesti­nal par­a­sites, fungi, and unfriendly bac­te­ria.

My mommy from Organic Gurlz Gardens has this recommendation on using Cloves :

Put 1–3 drops of clove oil in a tall glass of water or non-plastic water bot­tle, and mix. This adds a nice, spicy taste and is sur­pris­ingly refresh­ing.

You can cer­tainly put more than 3 drops in once you’ve become used to it, but don’t over­load — too much and your could get stom­ach upset. Clove is often used in spice mixes and tea mixes as well, or you can get cloves (they are a small, dried flower that looks brown and sharp) and grind them fresh for use in your dishes.
