Garlic skin, cloves, and orange peel tea in Creole are called “Te Po Lay ak Giroff ak po chadek”. My mom always saves her garlic skins and orange peels just in case.
This tea is effective for gas, bubble guts, and indigestion you name it. If something is wrong with your stomach the first thing my mom is going to say is “Bwe yon ti te po lay” drink some garlic leave tea. And it always makes me feel better! Whether it’s placebo or power of suggestion I just know that stuff works.
po chadek orange skin
The tea is pretty easy to make, you pretty much just boil everything until it’s fragrant and you can see a nice light color.
Garlic skin and cloves work together to relieve indigestion.
There are two ways you can go about it
The Haitian remedy for indigestion is a drink made from the skin and cloves of garlic, orange skin, and ginger.
The first way to make this is made by peeling the skin off of an orange in a spiral pattern and then cutting the peeled orange in half. The garlic is peeled and cut into pieces before being added to the inside of one of the oranges. The other orange is cut into quarters, with one quarter being added to each piece of peeled ginger. The cloves are then placed on top of each other in a line before being added to both oranges. Finally, boiling water is poured over all ingredients until it reaches the top layer of cloves.
Or you can do it this way too. To make this remedy, heat a handful of garlic skins in hot water for about 15 minutes. Then strain the liquid and discard the garlic skins.
To make a tea from the strained liquid, add one teaspoon of honey to two teaspoons of the garlic-honey infusion—one teaspoon three times daily is recommended.
The remedy will keep in the refrigerator for up to five days; bring it out at least 15 minutes before you plan on using it so that it can warm up.* Once opened, store in a dark place away from direct sunlight.*
Garlic is known for its strong odor and flavor—it’s also been shown to have anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties as well as antibacterial activity against certain strains of E. coli bacteria.* However, if you’re sensitive or allergic to garlic or other members of its Allium family (onions are also part of this group), consult your doctor before using any form thereof.*
Orange skin and ginger help with digestion.
Orange skin and ginger are both very helpful for digestion. Ginger makes your body warm, which helps with indigestion and nausea. It also reduces inflammation and muscle pain, so it can be used to treat a variety of other conditions as well. Orange skin is a natural antacid that helps with heartburn and acid reflux. The combination of these two ingredients makes for an effective remedy for indigestion!
