Every now and again something doesn’t agree with us and my usual habit is to take some of that icky pink stuff, or some effervescent powder. The problem with those is that they are laden with strange ingredients that many of us are no longer wanting to put into our bodies. Here is a natural nausea remedy for ginger syrup that will prove to be effective and delicious!
Ginger is a fabulous herb, and best known for treating nausea. It is safe to use for morning sickness in pregnant women and tummy troubles for children (not under 1 year old because of the honey content), which makes it a perfect herb to keep around the house for the whole family.
I’ve just finished up Unit 3 of the Herbal Intermediate Course that I’m taking through Herbal Academy of New England, and this ginger syrup is the recipe I made for the essay portion of my test. I can’t wait to use this ginger syrup next time I experience stomach discomfort so I can forego the pink stuff forever!
Recipe Source: Herbal Academy of New England
Do not use for children under 1 year old.
- 3 ounces fresh ginger, chopped finely or grated
- 3 cups of water
- 1 cup of honey (I use honey by Mohawk Valley Trading Company)
- Bring water and ginger to a boil, allow to boil for 20-40 minutes.
- Remove from heat, allow to cool.
- Strain ginger from water, making sure to press all the juices out of the ginger and into the liquid.
- Warm liquid just enough to allow honey to distribute evenly and stir in honey. Mix well.
- Transfer to a mason jar and store in refrigerator.
Add more honey for a thicker syrup.
To use: Take 1 Tbsp to 1 ounce at a time. Drink as is or add to a hot tea, such as my catnip-mint tea.
