**I like to add my turmeric paste to raw honey and add a tablespoon of it to my tea, once a day. It is such a powerful, natural antibiotic and medical doctors cannot explain why this pairing works as well as it does.

Simply mix the turmeric paste 1 part to 4 parts raw honey. Refrigerate in a sealed container.
