Homemade Ayurvedic syrup

Here is an Ayurvedic syrup you can do at home with the spices in your pantry.


1/4 teaspoon of turmeric powder

1/4 teaspoon of cardamom powder

1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper

1 teaspoon of freshly ground ginger

1 teaspoon of jaggery (organic raw cane sugar also known as panela in Latin American Spanish or rapadura in Brazilian Portuguese)


Bring all the spices and the jaggery (raw cane sugar) to a boil with 3 cups of water and let it simmer in low heat until the water reduces to about half the initial volume. Let it cool down covered until it reaches room temperature, strain into a jar and keep it refrigerated for up to a week. You can take 1/2 to 1 teaspoon every 2-4 hours or as needed.

You can find these spices at your grocery store, and I highly recommend to buy them organic. Those located in Miami can also find all the ingredients at Hridayam Apothecary.
