Tip #1 – Mouth Fresheners
Spices are excellent mouth fresheners! Say NO to mints that use unwanted chemicals and sugar, and use spices instead. Spices we like to use include Cardamom or Fennel Seed or Whole Clove. Cardamom is mildly sweet and several seeds come in a small green pod. Simply break open a pod, remove a few seeds, and chew. Save remaining seeds for later. Fennel Seed & Clove can be chewed whole. Fennel tastes somewhat like licorice, but clove is warming like cinnamon, so be careful if you can’t take the heat. 😉
Tip #2 – Heal Dry Lips
You know what’s great for healing dry lips? GHEE! This winter, instead of using lip balms with unhealthy oils or added preservatives, use one simple ingredient, ghee. Ghee is packed full of vitamins and feels silky smooth applied directly to the lips.
Tip #3 – Star Anise infusions
Did you know that most of the Star Anise produced in the world are used to make a leading brand of flu medicine? Star Anise is so pretty, but very few people know how to this spice at home. For centuries, people have been using star anise to make infused drinking water or infusing star anise with other spices into their broths and stocks. To infuse your water, simply drop one star anise in a water jug, and next day the water will be incredibly fragrant!
