Shatavari elixir


A delicious elixir for daily use made with shatavari, rose and cardamom.

You'll need: 

  • 1 quart jar
  • 1 cup dried shatavari
  • 1/2 cup dried rose petals (or 1 cup fresh)
  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • 2-3 cups brandy
  • 1 cup honey

Place all the dry ingredients in the jar, and fill the jar up to 3/4 full with brandy. Add honey until the jar is full. Cover, shake well, and label (title, date, ingredients), and set aside somewhere cool and dark for 4-6 weeks. 
After 4-6 weeks, strain, and bottle, discarding the plant matter. 

Take by the teaspoon, or put in a dropper bottle and take by the dropper, a few times a day.
