|Beautiful as the winter season can be, it's also prime time for cold and flu viruses to attack. Fortunately, we magic people can fight back! One of my favorite healing weapons is my grandmother's healing toddy.
To make the toddy, squeeze the juice of one-half lemon into a warmed mug. Add a tablespoon of honey and a half teaspoon of grated raw ginger. My GG added a jigger ( probably overflowing) of whiskey or brandy; you can leave this out if you prefer. Fill the mug with near-boiling water and stir well, stirring sunwise (deosil). As you stir, repeat:
"Lemons full of vitamin C,
Heat of ginger, honeybees,
Whiskey, soulful, rich, and warm,
Keep my body safe from harm."
Sip the toddy while it's as hot as possible, breathing the steam as you do. Envision its healing qualities imbuing your body with protective vigor.
