The Inspired Table's Warming Winter Tonic
This week, as we're featuring the Lemon & Calendula candle form Formulary 55, we thought it would be fitting to find the perfect winter tonic made with Lemon & Calendula. Our go to guide for inspiring delicious & healthy recipes is The Inspired Table (check out the instagram for the best tips!).
We asked Jordanna, the brains behind the business, to come up with a warming winter tonic for us based on the Lemon & Calendula candle. Not only is it refreshingly delicious, it has lots of health benefits to boost your immune system during the winter months, and is super easy to make! Scroll down underneath the photograph for the recipe!

2 teaspoons dried calendula petals
2 teaspoons manuka honey
1 teaspoon finely grated ginger
1 teaspoon finely grated turmeric
2 cups boiling water
½ lemon, sliced
TO MAKE: Steep calendula petals, manuka honey, ginger and turmeric in the boiling water for 5 minutes. Strain mixture into 2 tea cups. Squeeze in lemon juice to taste.
