The holidays are upon us!

Here in Colorado, it’s been a brisk below zero and so beautiful outside with snow covered trees and the sun shining down making the snow sparkle like diamonds. When it’s this cold, I always crave a hot drink in my hands. This week I got creative with my magic tricks in my cupboard and wanted to share my latest concoction with you!

Here is a snapshot of the crazy amazing properties the ingredients in this one drink has…

………………………………………………………………..

Dandyblend (amazing for liver/gallbladder!)
Maca root (hormones, adrenal glands, energy)
Chaga (what doesn’t Chaga do?? It’s Rediculous: immune booster, cell regenerator, destruction of unhealthy cells…)
– Raw cacao powder (highest food source of magnesium, loaded with minerals, antioxidants)
– Albizzia from Jeff’s Best Hemp! (Amazing stress tonic and adaptogenic herb)
Sunnydew stevia from Sunrider (food for the pancreas to stabilize blood sugar, hormones, and digestion)
DoTerra peppermint essential oil (amazing for digestive system, mind, and energy)
