The other day I told you about the crazy tea-making mode I’m in.


…I told you about the vintage travel trailer overhaul I’m in the midst of right?!? Side note :: If you’re interested, you can follow my vintage trailer restoration via Instagram @frugallysustain  

What could the two have to do with each other?


Well, all of my spare time — and not so spare time — has been spent working on this trailer. That basically means, my house is a wreck, I’m exhausted at the end of, and I’m probably not eating like I should. However…

…this recipe for Ginger Turmeric Tea has been my salvation of sorts.

I’m drinking quarts of this stuff daily! Because let me tell you, a few days ago I started to feel the soreness of extreme manual labor beginning to take hold — unacceptable! I needed to make something that was nourishing + quick + easy — the solution came to me as I stood sanding the ceiling.

What does this tea do?

The botanicals included in the following recipe bring balance to the body’s systems (i.e. reproductive, circulatory, digestive, musculoskeletal, etc). And the resulting herbal infusion is super high in antioxidants and loaded with analgesic properties ready for the treatment of arthritis, rheumatism, fibromyalgia, bursitis, tendonitis, spinal problems, osteoporosis, and general muscular aches + pains caused by strenuous physical activity.

My intention was to handcraft something that would relieve, or at the very least ease, my body’s muscular inflammatory response to all of the extra physical activity and provide lots of support to my immune system.


Effective + safe + inexpensive — medicinal herbs have been used for centuries to naturally fortify the body against inflammatory conditions and reduce pain.

Various medicinal actions of herbs — primarily that of the anodynes (pain killers) and anti-inflammatories — can be super effectively used as alternatives to NSAIDs and/or pharmaceutical pain relievers.

And the best news…the herbal combo I formulated for this tea is a powerhouse tonic when the intention is for overall wellness.

A few facts + a little folklore surrounding these plant allies.

Ginger Turmeric Herbal Tea Blend

*Purchase organically-grown or wild harvested herbs whenever possible.
*Parts are measured by volume, not weight.

  • 2 parts true cinnamon chips
  • 2 parts lemongrass
  • 1 part ginger root
  • 1 part turmeric root powder
  • 1/2 part devil’s claw root
  • 1/2 part lemon peel


  1. Measure the parts of each of the herbs listed and mix in a large bowl until well combined.
  2. Grab your single serving tea carafe (this is my absolute favorite way to make a quick cup of loose leaf tea), tea infusers, and/or tea pots…and brew a cup! OR make a larger batch by adding 4 tablespoons of the herbal blend to a quart-size glass jar, fill the jar with just boiled water, steep for a few minutes, strain and enjoy. (Note: I get all of my loose leaf tea-making supplies online from Mountain Rose Herbs.)
  3. This herbal tea blend will keep stored in a cool, dark place for approximately 6 months. (Note: I like to store all of my teas in glass jars with tight-fitting lids.)


-Drink freely as often as needed for desired effect.
