Here’s a simple ginger pastille that holds enough herbal medicine to decrease nausea and settle a stomach that has seen too much overindulgence.
What You’ll Need
- 60ml ginger tincture
- 25g gelatin (or agar-agar for my vegan friends)
- 25ml vegetable glycerine
- 25ml water
- Coconut oil, to coat moulds.
How to Make it
It’s that simple. These will only last a week, and are best stored wrapped in baking paper. Ginger is nature’s best anti-emetic medicine in my mind, meaning that it effectively treats nausea. And if that’s not enough to get you mixing your own medicines, it also acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory, making it your ally when it comes to battling period pain or annoying bloating.
