During the month of May, it’s a great idea to put a handful of cloves in a Chinese soup bowl or other porcelain or ceramic bowl with water, and soak overnight. The next morning, take three to four spoonfuls of the clove water before breakfast (on an empty stomach), no more than five. Do this first thing in the morning when you brush your teeth.
For convenience, you can make enough for three or four days and keep it in the refrigerator. For best results, take some everyday throughout the month of May.
Cloves are an herb that are known for reducing parasite activity in the body. Viruses breed in the springtime and drinking this easy tea every morning for the month of May can strengthen your immune system. Your nose, ears and throat will absorb the protective capacity of the clove and help you avoid getting sick as these tissues are your first line of defense. This recipe is to be used during the month of May only.
