CCF: Ayurveda's Miracle Tea

May 16, 2019

We all know the feeling of over-indulging. And some of us struggle with digestive sluggishness, no matter what we eat. Rather than taking antacids (which only slow digestion further) or resorting to other over-the-counter solutions, you can naturally boost daily digestion with CCF—a blend of cumin, coriander and fennel traditionally used in Ayurvedic healing. Beauty Water author Tori Holmes says, "I make this recipe once a week and take one shot a day to keep my digestion optimal."

Cumin Coriander Fennel Reset


  • 1 tablespoon cumin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon fennel seeds
  • 1 tablespoon coriander seeds
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon dried German chamomile (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup (optional)


    1. In a medium saucepan, combine the cumin, fennel, and coriander seeds, and toast until fragrant.

    2. Add the water and bring to a rolling boil for 5 minutes.

    3. Remove from heat and add in the chamomile (if using). Let steep for 10 minutes.

    4. Using a strainer, strain out the solid ingredients, then pour the liquid into a quart-size jar.

    5. Add the maple syrup (if using) and stir.

    6. Serve hot or cold.
