A medicinal 'Qi'coction in the Earth Element to boost immunity.
The holiday season is upon us and all that comes with it. You should be feeling a bit overwhelmed, a little sleep deprived and over-exposed to the seasonal cold and flu. To boot, at this time of the year, your body is more susceptible to illness. All of this can take a toll on your body. When the sniffles hit you, it is time to rejuvenate with a Qi'coction and avoid getting terribly sick.
Our Qi Sour 'Qi-coction' is made with whiskey infused with a homeopathic blend of tea based in the Earth element, grapefruit, and honey—it won’t cure or prevent your cold or flu, but it will ease symptoms much like curling up with a hot cup of tea or chicken soup.
The alcohol in a 'Qi-coction' can help dilate blood vessels, boost circulation and warm the body, making it easier for your body to combat infection. The raw infused honey and organic loose leaf herbal tea can help loosen up congestion. Be sure to hydrate and drink the tea on its own with raw infused honey as well.
Enjoy this warm drink alone or with friends and family as a lemony, spicy and warm flavor that also supplements your immune system.
