I am always creating concoctions of healthy ingredients that will help the body feel better. I make a tonic that I call Master Tonic. I have been making it and using it for years now. I have witnessed the benefits from many around me and I have felt my own shifts from drinking the tonic. However, my children will not drink it, which is understandable seeing that some of the ingredients are peppers and horseradish. So after research and playing around with ingredients and 3 taste testers, I have developed my own Immune Tonic. It is made especially for children over the age of 1 (because of the raw honey added). All of the ingredients are Organic and of the highest quality and combine to boost the immune system to prevent illness while helping replenish the body's most important vitamins. I am now offering it in my store but I want to give you the recipe to make at home too!
