Servings 192 servings



  • Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan or tea kettle.
  • Put the ginger, chamomile, fennel, and cardamom in a cloth tea bag.
  • Remove the water from the heat and add the tea bag. Allow to steep for about half an hour.
  • Remove the tea bag. Add the coconut sugar or other non-honey sweetener, cinnamon, and clove to the tea. Store in an airtight, glass container in the refrigerator or freeze into ice cubes.


This mixture will work best for about 1 week after it is made {hence the reason you'd want to freeze at least some of it}. Shake thoroughly before using. Here are dosages {do not exceed 6 dosages in a 24 hour period}.
● 0-3 months: 1/2 tsp. (2.5 mL)
● 3-6 months: 1 tsp. (5 mL)
● 6-12 months: 2 tsp. (10 mL)
