After a long day of practicing or performing…

I want to wind down and let my body and mind relax.  I also want to take a proactive approach to the healing process. One way I’ve found how to accomplish this is with the help of a tea based concoction. The healing properties of tea is vast but this is nothing compared to the rest of the ingredients we’re going to use!

The ingredients I like to use in my performers wind down concoction are…

  • 1 decaffeinated tea bag
  • 1/4 lemon
  • 1/2 tablespoon of root turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon of fire cider/apple cider vinegar

My choice of tea varies. If I’m having the late in the night I’ll try to have a decaff tea such like a green tea in the video. If I’m having this a little earlier on, I’ll opt for the Chinese Pu-erh tea.

Lemon and turmeric are regarded to have a long list of healing properties. Between alkalizing the body and anti inflammatory effects alone, these two ingredients are a must for the concoction!

Finally is the apple cider vinegar. I’ve taken this one step further and use a mix called “fire cider”. Aptly named, this stuff is quite strong so the max I’ll use is a tablespoon. Fire cider is not only a great apple cider vinegar, but it is jam packed with longevity ingredients such as honey, oranges, lemons, onions, ginger, horseradish, garlic, turmeric, and habanero pepper!

While you don’t have to become the next health mixologist, I hope you’re able to find a concoction that works for you so you can wind down and start repairing the body for your next day of music making.
