Made a ginger decoction. Boiled for 30min. Ginger doesn’t grow in this area, so this was store bought.

I'm on the tail end of an unpleasant sinus infection currently, so I decided to make a ginger decoction. The steam from boiling it helps clear out the sinuses, and the decoction itself is great for nausea caused by swallowing too much mucous. I also like to keep some on hand for indigestion.

My husband has a cold, and I'm preparing to stay healthy by making a ginger decoction. I loosely followed this recipe for a ginger spice decoction. http://homesteadrevival.blogspot.com/2013/03/ginger-spice-decoction.html?m=1
It includes ginger (store bought), cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, and bay leaves. I also added licorice root so the decoction wouldn't be too drying.

Didn't have locally grown ginger, so I used store bought that I'd had in the fridge for a while. Sliced roughly and simmered for 45-60 minutes. It had boiled down quite a bit, so I actually did a second simmer with another batch of water for an hour.

Didn't store it because I had it immediately with a bit of honey and lemon juice to settle my stomach and soothe my throat. It's got quite a kick!
