- 4-6 slices of fresh ginger (best to peel it first; chop into fairly thick slices)
- 2-3 orange peels
- Fresh purified/filtered water
Get a large pot of fresh, purified water (about 6-8 cups will do), and put on the stove. Wash your oranges before peeling them and toss the peels in the pot with the ginger. Eat the oranges (mmmm)! Now, bring the contents to a simmering boil on the stove for about 5-8 minutes. Pour into mugs, leaving the peels and ginger behind and allow to cool a bit before enjoying. Consume as often as possible!
