If you’ve made Candied Burdock or Candied Turmeric, Three-Root Syrup is a natural follow-up project. Burdock and Turmeric are classic blood-purifying herbs. They’re often included in detoxification blends and both are most excellent for recovery after illness.
Burdock helps the body break down wastes, including those left in the battlefield after you’ve conquered an illness. Turmeric improves circulation and digestion and decreases inflammation, including that which commonly follows in the aftermath of illness. Turmeric, like Dandelion, is a nutritive diuretic. Both Dandelion and Turmeric help the body to quickly eliminate the wastes has helped to break down. Plus, Dandelion offers a nice compliment of nutrients to help the body rebuild after illness.
Of course, if your life is like mine, you’ll find stress is more often a culprit in the imbalances you face on a daily basis than illness. When I first designed this formula, I was actually thinking more about helping my family find ways to incorporate these three herbs into our daily diet to help offset the stresses we face regularly. As a sweetener for coffee, tea, mineral water, and kombucha, this blend is quite nice. It’s got a hint of root beer flavor, although not the classic sarsaparilla or sassafras style the big soda companies modeled their artificial root beers after. This syrup offers up a taste of what real root beer tonic drinks from decades past were. Burdock and Dandelion were often paired in olden days as a spring tonic. This blend offers up the same gentle detoxification and uplifting properties as did those.
