Apothe-Cary Recipes: Vitamin Citrus Elixir
Happy Valentines Day love bugs! I'm starting a new series called ApotheCARY Recipes. (Pretty clever right? ) And what better way to start than sending you healing love on Valentines Day!
Herbal elixirs, tonics, potions. They go by many names. What they all have in common is their powerful antioxidant benefits from herbs and spices. This series is about healthy tonics for your health and well-being. First up, Vitamin Citrus Elixir.
Since it's flu season, it's a great idea to supercharge on vitamin C. Vitamin C builds your immunity to prevent illness. This tonic is packed with natural vitamin C that we get from citrus fruits with an herbal twist. Make this elixir for you and your loved ones. One of the best ways to show that you care about someone is to take care of the ones you love. <3
