( Everlasting ) ... Scientific Name: Gnaphalium spp.Borraja
( Borage ) ... Scientific Name: Borago officinalis
Boil up to 4 cups of water. Insert a pinch of gordolobo flowers about 2 inches in diameter... a pinch of borraja ( you can see how it looks HERE
) and a pinch of cinnamon sticks to the infusion. Put the lid on and let it simmer for a couple of minutes. Take it from the heat and let it rest for 5 minutes longer.
Meanwhile prepare a large mug with a thick coat of bee honey (usually about a half inch deep), add the juice of two lemons (the little green ones that are extremely sour are the best for this)... stir them well until the honey is disolved with the lemon.
Drain the contents of your infusion into your mug and drink away.
It's a lot better when it's still hot, you can keep the rest and drink it the next night and that's that.
The only precautions that I can give you is that this is definetly NOT an everyday use drink, you only use it when you really need it, 3 to 5 consecutive nights tops, and only one cup per night. It can make you drowsy but you'll be able to sleep like a baby, the Borraja (Borage) has sudorific properties that cause the excretion of bodily fluids which helps you to expell all the unwanted germs out of your system and prevent further complications, that's why I only recommend it at night, so you can resume your daily routine the next day feeling like new.
