Herbal Multi-Vitamin

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!
