Tumeric Elixir

Make this powdered magic Tumeric Elixir to calm inflammation and provide energy. Adjustable for immediate drinking or storage. 


Sometimes we don’t have access to fresh turmeric but still NEED the magical energy of turmeric to heal our spirit or help with inflammation.  Not to worry — dry turmeric has similar properties and is just as easy to work with.  I love this elixir so much — I often keep the base ready to use, so I can make the tea even quicker.  

I have been drinking this my whole life.  The initial part I was forced! Now as an adult – I relish the tea. Now it is soothing and uplifting.   Looking back, I know that this must be one of the reasons that as children we were rarely sick.  Now I have it often, especially if I feel run down, emotionally or physically.  

When you look at the directions, many people think that the ghee part is strange.  I know it’s off-putting.  I understand.  Believe me, you won’t taste it.  It helps to magnify the properties of turmeric and basically, let’s turmeric do what it needs to do!  The concoction comes together quickly and in no time, you will be enjoying a warming and healing cup of homemade turmeric tea.


2 Tablespoons dry turmeric

1 Tablespoon of organic ghee

1 Tablespoon dry ginger

A couple shakes or grinds of black pepper or 9 peppercorns

4 cups of fresh water

2 Tablespoons fresh local honey

Juice of a half a lemon

Fresh mint


  1. In a small pot, add the ghee and put the flame to low heat.  As it warms, add the turmeric to let it bloom and its powers manifest.  Stir slowly and carefully.  Add the ginger and black pepper.  Stir some more.  This will all come together in a matter of minutes.
  1. Once you can smell an intense earthiness, this is the BASE.   You can let it cool, put it into a glass jar, and spoon out as needed.  Use within the  week.  You can store it outside on the counter, ready to be enjoyed.

If drinking now:

  1. Add in the water and increase the heat to medium.  Let it come to a rolling boil and then lower the heat, letting in heat for 20 minutes.   Add the fresh mint.  
  2. Take the pot off the heat.  Add fresh lemon juice.  Slowly pour a bit into a mug, add the honey and stir well.  Fill the cup –breath deeply.  Grounding yourself, take a full breath and set an intention for the rest of your day.  Will you approach the rest of your day with an assumption of the positive?  Will you remember the abundance that you already have?  WIll you KNOW in your soul that good things come to you?

This.  THIS.  

In my childhood, anytime anything was WRONG, this is what my mother would make me.  But then again, when things were right, she would make this for us as well.  We grimaced.  We were not happy. If anyone had said this concoction would take over the wellness universe — well, I would not be a believer.  Never in a million years, I would exclaim.  I grew up with friends wondering why my house “smelled like that” and all sorts of other mean comments that stay with a young girl trying to find her way.  

Now, as a healer and mother myself, I love it when my MOMMY makes it for me! I make versions of this drink for myself daily.  She heals.  She uplifts.  She energizes.  She protects with a radiant energy, an all-encompassing golden light. Whether your day is just how it should be or more difficult than you had imagined, this is the warm soul hug that you need.  Since there is zero caffeine in this drink, you can have it anytime you want – it makes an ideal break in your day midday or mid-afternoon, as well as a beautifully warming drink to send you off to a good night’s sleep.  I have shared this drink with so many dear friends, new friends, and family members.  Offering this tea is a wonderful invitation to connect and share love.

I know it’s sold as tea bags and sold in bottles in the grocery store,  but making it from scratch will make the flavor profile stronger and more effective. And it’s so easy– not much more than you would 

I love this version warm – I just feel like it heals that much more, that much deeper, and that much better.  But you can drink it cold if you really must. 

Take a pause…know your worth. Stand in your power.  KNOW that you are a special someone.

HEALTHY HINT: Be especially careful when pouring — turmeric definitely leaves her mark on clothes, fingernails, and counters
