I believe good health starts with good food…but sometimes our diets need a bit of an extra boost.
I’ve been making this herbal vitamin recipe for years. And I’ve been very happy with the results. (Here is another similar recipe.) About a year ago I combined these two recipes into what I use today.

Herbal Multi-Vitamin Tincture
Place the following in a quart-sized jar:
Pour very hot water over the herbs (I use about 1.5 cups). The fill the jar the rest of the way with food grade vegetable glycerin. Let sit for 6 weeks, shaking occasionally.
As adults we take 2-3 Tbsp each day. The kids get 1 Tbsp each day. Tony and I each drink 1 to 1.5 quarts of green smoothie spread throughout each day (we’d rather drink our greens than eat them!). So I add ours to our smoothies. The kids each get a tablespoon in their morning breakfast (usually baked oatmeal or overnight oats). During the winter months I also add elderberry syrup to our smoothies or breakfast.
I order all of my bulk herbs from Vitacost (use this link to get $10 off your first order!)
The initial investment for all these supplies can seem rather expensive, but these herbs will last you for a long while. We use about one quart of herbal multi-vitamin each month, and these herbs last me over a year!
Here’s to being healthy, naturally!
