  • Small saucepan



  • Wash your fresh ginger root, then peel it using the edge of a spoon and slice it thinly. Place the ginger root, elderflower blossoms, and water in a small saucepan.
  • For a mild tea, boil for at least 10 minutes. For a stronger tea, use more ginger root and let boil for 20 minutes.
  • Remove it from the heat and strain the ginger and elderflowers. Let cool for 5 minutes, then add the raw honey and enjoy!


Ginger root is readily available in the vegetable section of most grocery stores. While it’s usually sold in large chunks, if you have leftover ginger root, you can peel it, then freeze it to use later or simply add it to soups, smoothies, or natural homemade cold + flu remedies.
