Aveda Rituals Book

If you follow me on Instagram then I’m sure you’ve seen a few pictures of my new found old love.  Many years ago, I’m going to say the early 2000s (during my I must buy every neat book that I see phase), while scouring the book aisle of Marshall’s I came across this Aveda Rituals book, I remember I use to refer to it quite often then when Google became more convenient I sort of tossed it to the side.  Then one night I felt myself coming down with a cold and to be honest I didn’t feel like referring to “Google” and scrolling through the many, many searches of websites that would have a “natural” remedy to treat this soon to be nasty cold.  Then I remembered that I still had my Aveda Rituals book, within minutes I was able to find a broth that would nurse this cold.   At first when I read the ingredients to this broth I thought…GROSS. Now the original recipe yield a lot of this broth so I modified it down to just a regular tea cup size .

1 cup of boiling water

1 tsp of garlic powder or 1 crushed garlic clove

1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper

1 tsp of fresh ginger

1 lemon or 1 tablespoon of lemon juice

Allow the tea to seep for about 5 minutes covered then add the following:

1/2 shot of brandy

1 tablespoon of honey
