Honey & Lemon Immunity Serum

Honey & Lemon Immunity Serum

Suffering from allergies, a cold or a flu or just general low immunity?  Well, help is on the way people!

I’m happy to report that beyond my regular “check-up” from the doctor, I haven’t been to the doctor in years.   So proud of me!!

What I have chosen instead is to make healthier, more holistic and natural choices to my healthcare. It starts and ends with the food I eat, regular exercise, stress management and supplements.

As many of you know, I am a wellness consultant and educator for doTERRA.  I’m going onto my 4th month and the impact it has made on my life continues to grow.  What really resonates with me and the doTERRA brand is their commitment to educating their customers.  The image below really identifies with me and it is exactly the way I treat my own health and what I communicate on this website.  I hope you feel the same.

This Honey & Lemon Immunity Serum provides so many benefits:

:: lemon provides the powerhouse antioxidant, vitamin C.  It is also cleansing and purifying.

:: honey is amazing for immunity and it is also an antibacterial agent.  Just make sure you are ideally using a locally sourced honey, ideally unpasturized or raw for the immense benefits.

:: ginger has numerous therapeutic properties including antioxidant effects, an ability to inhibit the formation of inflammatory compounds, and direct anti-inflammatory effects.

You can use this serum to help a sore throat or add to hot water to boost your immunity. Or, like me, take a spoonful daily!  And, the longer it sits, the better it is.
