Flowers of Thyme Drink Recipe-Last Revised 11-18-15

[Try to make it with all organic ingredients]

 

You will need: one ginger root, 21 grams of each (one plastic container in the organic herb section of your local store): rosemary, thyme, and basil, container of raw honey, cinnamon stick, vanilla extract, filtered water, mixing bowl, pitcher, black tea-optional

 

Slice ginger root, while stripping away outer layer, set in mixing bowl. Boil 1 ½ cups water. Reduce to low, and place one cinnamon stick in water. Cover, and stir occasionally. You can let it simmer while you’re peeling the thyme and basil. Use both containers worth of thyme and basil, and ½ of the container of Rosemary. Add 2 tablespoons of raw honey, 4 teaspoons of vanilla extract, and pour cinnamon water (minus the stick) over the ingredients in the bowl. Dilute with a splash of filtered water. Slowly stir. Add the mix to a pitcher, fill just over half way with filtered water, stir, and strain to serve. If you prefer, you can dilute it with more water, or steep black tea to incorporate.

I love to write, cook, and take photos. As an INFP personality type, I truly care about others and my values. I'm a fraternal twin, have two older brothers, and I served in AmeriCorps. I love my family and my boyfriend. They rock! For years, I collaborated online with Stuart Armitage (UK). Our band, The Lyre Effect, released several albums, though we never met in person. Additionally, I've written a novel, novella, poetry book, and children's book series. Being into the visual arts from a young age, I've had my artwork featured in several gallery exhibits, enjoyed providing assistance on music video sets, as well as acted in and co-directed a few short films. Playing piano and singing are also passions of mine (wrote my first song and poem when I was 9 years old). Currently, I'm part of the writing group, Lead Us Ink, and published my first poetry book in 2015. In this technological age, I think it's important to share the written word, something that will always be sacred and personal. I hope this blog will help me to connect more with others, and I look forward to networking with readers like you. I want to find out about new music, interesting articles, and artwork. So, please, reach out to me. I might even have some good suggestions for you. Take care, and happy reading!
