One of the first things I like to do each morning is juice so I get fresh nutrients and live enzymes into my body. With the cold and flu season still around us, juicing is a phenomenal way to pack it in.
Are you psyched? I’ve got one of my favorite powerful, mega-antioxidant juice recipes for you here today!

Essential oils are extracted from the bark, seeds, and leaves of plants and produce a natural anti-inflammatory response in the body. They've been used for ages by many cultures for their therapeutic and medicinal qualities.
So, when I add essential oils, I get to enjoy my delicious, mega-antioxidant juice and know that I’m healing my body the most effective way I can from the inside out.
