Turmeric Tonic

This healing elixir tastes like drinking a glass of sunshine. The star ingredient, turmeric, is bursting with anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, immune boosting properties and will keep your body healthy and happy moving into winter.

This easy to make tonic is one of the healthiest additions you can introduce into your diet. Consuming turmeric is a wonderful way to help your digestion, reduce inflammation and improve the health of your joints. Many people take turmeric supplements to aid arthritis or stomach issues, or just to stay healthy all year long. Ginger, one of our favorite things, is also one of the best ways to soothe the belly and assist your digestive system in optimal functioning. Manuka honey is a natural antibiotic that happens to also be a delicious sweetener, and the lemon is both cleansing and alkalizing.

Not only will this drink make your insides super happy and healthy, but it will also give you a big boost of energy and sense of vitality.  Drink this deliciously bright, gorgeous drink and enjoy all the healing benefits of turmeric, ginger, lemon and Manuka honey. You can make it as potent or mild as you wish depending how much lemon, ginger and turmeric you add-- play around until the potion works for your tastebuds, but the recipe below is what we love best!



  • 1 tablespoon Manuka honey
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric spice
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 1-2 inches of grated ginger root
  • filtered water


1. Peel and grate ginger (easiest to peel using the edge of a spoon!)

2. Combine grated ginger, turmeric, lemon juice and Manuka honey

3. Add all of the above to a pitcher of water and stir very well before drinking.

Cheers to your health!
