After the holidays, we normally end up with sore throats, runny noses, and coughs. Why? Did you know that you can cripple your immune system for up to five hours after eating sugar! ( Study from HERE) Also, it’s a fertilizer for cancer- meaning it feeds the cancer cells in your body. Yikes. I’m not trying to scare you, but we need to be educated about this stuff! Please research about the effects of sugar on your body and learn about it. Join me in your New Years resolutions to cut processed sugar out of our diet for good! Some great sugar alternatives are coconut palm sugar, honey, maple syrup, and stevia.
Now onto the recipe! I got it from my awesome friend’s blog, Maddi, at anaturaladventure.com. These are great for soothing sore or scratchy throats, and they taste like little candies! Made with Young Living’s Lemon and Thieves essential oils, it helps boost your immune system!
Makes: about 2 full small molds or 1 with large molds
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup honey
15-20 drops Thieves EO
10-15 drops Lemon EO
• Put all ingredients into a electric stand mixer ( or use a hand mixer)
• Mix together until fully incorporated ( if your coconut oil is hard, the consistency will be creamy, if your coconut oil is liquid, mix until combined)
• Using a spoon, put the mixture into a gummy bear mold and freeze for about 15 minutes. Store in small container and keep in freezer for freshness! Enjoy!
