Take Root-Detox Oxymel Tonic
Oxymel literally means ‘acid and honey’. It is a lovely sweet and sour herbal syrup that is created using traditional extraction methods into a base of acid (apple cidar vinegar) and raw honey. Oxymels can be taken throughout the day as desired. A dropper full on the tongue, in a glass of water (or sofa water!), added to salads and smoothes, and can even be used on skin by adding a few drops on a cotton pad and then applying onto blemishes, scars, and age spots to speed up cell renewal and promote healing. The combination of herbs, raw Buckwheat honey and apple cider vinegar make a powerful yet gentle tonic for everyday use!
Ingredients: Raw Buckwheat honey, apple cider vinegar, Nettle, lemon balm, burdock root, pau d’arco, dandion root, cinnamon, ginger, sassafras.
Buckwheat Honey has the highest amount of antioxidants and promotes overall healing of the body. It is naturally antibacterial and soothes sore throats and improves blood circulation.
Apple Cidar Vinegar is amazing! There are thousands of articles listing the benefits of this timeless ‘medicine’. I used it because it helps promote detoxification, boosts energy, and promotes overall balance in the bodily systems. It also stabilized blood sugar, fights fungal infections, wards off seasonal allergies, boosts metabolism and promotes weight loss. It is a wonderful medium for extracting herbs!
Nettle is rich in essential minerals and b vitamins. It is an amazing blood purifier-clean blood=healthy glowing skin and nails. Nettle also treats hair loss, reduces allergy symptoms, boosts libido, and helps with urinary problems.
Burdock Root strengthens the lymphatic system, detoxifies, and cleanses the blood... which helps with chronic skin conditions.
Dandelion Root strengthens the liver, boosts the immune system, and soothes digestive disturbances.
Cinnamon is a powerful antioxidant that aids in digestion, boosts circulation, stabilizes blood sugar, and eases allergy symptoms.
Pau D’arco detoxifies the body, boosts circulation, reducses inflammation, and fights candida.
Echineacea boosts immune system.
