Recipe for Healing Tonic

If you're feeling bad, and need some healing potion, this beats anything you can buy in a bottle. I've given this recipe out many times, so I thought I'd put it up here. You will need:

Clove of Fresh Garlic
Stem of Fresh Ginger
Honey (Preferably Raw)
A Fresh Lemon
Tincture of Echinacea (Available at most pharmacies, or health food stores.)
Shot of Brandy (Optional)

Peel 3-4 pieces of not cut, crush or dice it. Remove the bark of the ginger with vegetable peeler or paring knife, in order to expose the "meat". Place the garlic and ginger in a small pot with about 3-4 cups of water. Bring to a gentle rolling boil for about 5 minutes. Pour the tea into a cup, and squeeze 1 or 2 wedges of lemon juice into it. Add a generous amount of honey, as the tea will be nasty without it. Add 1-2 droppers full of echinacea. The brandy is optional, but will help you sleep. Drink 3-4 cups a day (not with brandy in all of them! LOL) You will feel 100% better within 48 hours.
