A hygge kind of life : ginger syrup
Last but not least, the nurturing hygge trick I enclose in my everyday routine : the soothing syrup.
As nature all around blossoms all you want to do is stop and..smell the roses! But the extra pollen in the air can be sooooo disturbing!! My throat - especially in the mornings - feels sore and harsh.
Or it felt this way until I started having ginger syrup first thing in the morning and last thing before sleep...it is spicy enough to calm throat but kind of sweet as well. It makes you feel soothed and nurtured and refreshed! And very easy to make it at home...
Here is how to :
Unpeel three ginger root fingers and cut them in small cubes. Put them in a pan with three cups of filtered water and bring them to a boil. Then add a cinnamon stick and / or a star annice and let it simmer in low heat for about an hour - until water is reduced in half. Remove syrup of heat and add honey to your taste. Let it cool in room temperature and store in the fridge - it can be refrigerated for up to three months.
