Ginger is a natural love herb (aka - aphrodisiac) due to its stimulatory effects on the
circulatory system, which makes these ginger balls as blissful as you can get! Now we have
your attention, ginger is also known to treat digestive problems, is an anti-inflammatory,
can help reduce the symptoms of colds and flu’s, and is commonly used to combat morning
and motion sickness. What a magical little rhizome!
Ginger has been used since ancient times by cultures all around the globe! In fact,
the Greeks would wrap ginger in bread to relive digestive problems, this led to the creation of the much-loved treat – Gingerbread!
the English and Colonial Americans made ginger beer as a remedy for diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting.
it was named ‘the rich man’s herb’ in the middle ages; in Europe you could trade 1 pound of ginger for a live sheep!
Thankfully now days we don’t have to trade a sheep for some ginger, we can just head over
to the SHOP tab, pick our favourite blend and HOORAY – its delivered straight to your door!
These blissful ginger balls are perfect to make up at the start of the week and have on hand
when that 3pm crash happens (this way, you can bypass that troublesome vending machine
and save yourself some guilt and mula). They only have 4 ingredients (well, 5 if you would
like to add some vanilla sweetness to the mix) and will satisfy your sweet cravings with the
wonderful addition of some pretty awesome health benefits!
