Whole Chai SpiceC'mon... Just give it a Chai...

Chai is a delicious beverage with a wonder medley of healing spices, including Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, Cardamom, and Fennel. [Read more about their healing properties here...]

We highly recommend drinking more Chai and adding these spices into your meals as a way to prevent and eliminate parasites.

Chai puts the "Treat" in Treat-ment! ;)

And Chai enhances our other "Fall Sessions" Treat-ment recipes such as our Figgy Fudge Balls (recipe here)!

You have several options for getting more Chai Spice in your life.

Way 1: Buy Some Pre-Made Chai

We love Blue Lotus Chai brand Rooibos Chai Masala Chai. This is an instant chai tea mix with a base of rooibos powder. It’s naturally caffeine-free and dissolves instantly in hot water.

Ways 2 and 3: Make Your Own

We love making a homemade blend from fresh spices (Get your Spices here)!

Way 2: Chai Spice Mix

Chai Spice Mix Ingredients:Chai Mix Ingredients

  • 1 tsp. nutmeg — fresh shavings, or powder
  • 1 T. cinnamon
  • 1 T. ginger powder
  • 1 T cardamom powder
  • 1/2-1 tsp. ground cloves (very strong!)
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper (*optional)
  • 1 tsp. Bulletproof VanillaMax - ground pure vanilla beans
  • a few shakes of fennel powder
  • We recommend spices from Spicely because all imported spices are required to go through a sterilization process before being sold in the United States. Most spice companies sterilize using synthetic chemicals or radiation. Spicely Organics uses a process called steam sterilization, which sterilizes food products without adding any chemicals or hazardous materials.

  • Put all spices into a coffee grinder.
  • Grind for about 30 seconds - 1 minute until the mixture is a really fine powder.

  • What Is Chai Tea? (and healing properties)

    Originating in India, Chai Tea is typically a spiced black tea mix. The spices can vary, but it usually contains a combination of cinnamon, cardamom, black pepper, cloves, fennel, ginger, nutmeg, and vanilla. The base is traditionally a black tea, but decaffeinated, or herbal teas can also be used.

    Each spice contains potent health benefits:

    Cinnamon - antifungal, antibacterial, it can also reduce the risk of diabetes — it blocks insulin from getting into cells, and can lower blood pressure and prevent cell damage for diabetics.

    Cardamom - anti-inflammatory, it relives muscle spasms, and can treat asthma, and other respiratory ailments.

    Black Pepper - antioxidant

    Cloves - anti-parasitic, antibacterial, anti-fungal, analgesic, it is widely used to soothe gum and tooth pain.

    Ginger - anti-inflammatory, it can soothe upset stomaches and diarrhea, it’s helpful for arthritis and heart disease, and reduces the risk of colon cancer.

    Vanilla - vanilla is a powerful antioxidant.
