Heat coconut milk on medium in a small pot as you add all herbs and spices –everything but honey and oil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Stir in honey and oil, and then remove from heat. Once honey and oil have melted, pour tonic through a fine sieve into a blender. Blend on high for about 30 seconds. Pour your frothy tonic into a mug, cozy up, and enjoy!
