Winter Wellness: Turmeric Mānuka Tonic Recipe

25 May 2018

We’re delighted to be celebrating Winter Wellness here at Commonsense. For us, this Tonic is the essence of winter wellness:  anti-inflammatory turmeric mixed with warming ginger, antibacterial Mānuka honey and Vitamin C-rich lemons. A grind of black pepper helps make the goodness of the turmeric more absorbable. 

Our Corporate Services Manager Lucy whipped this up this quick and easy recipe in the office this week, and our team was amazed that something so 'good for you' could also taste SO good! It's divine! Read on to discover Lucy's very easy recipe.
