3 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp ground ginger or
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cardamom

- Honey — I used regular pure, unfiltered local honey and Ambrosia Pure Honey. I initially purchased both at LifeSource Natural Foods, but found a better bulk price on Amazon.
Mix all ingredients together in a cup and mix with hot water. Slowly sip on this delicious drink. It is especially beneficial right before bedtime.
- Warning: Never give honey to a child younger than age 1 due to the risk of infant botulism, a rare but serious form of food poisoning.
