This recipe uses high-nutrient herbs to make a liquid multivitamin. It's easily customizable for kids or adults. Soon I'll share a pregnancy-specific one.
My kids prefer chewable/gummy vitamins, which are also a good source of gelatin, but this tincture contains more vitamins and minerals from herbs and is more concentrated.
It is very important to research and only use herbs that can be safely taken long term when making a tincture that will be taken regularly (especially by children).
The Herbs I use are:– Alfalfa– Red Raspberry Leaf– Dandelion Leaf– Stevia (optional-for taste)
“To make a tincture, you will need the following supplies:– A clean glass jar (at least pint size) with lid– Consumable alcohol like vodka or rum- at least 80 proof (or apple cider vinegar or food grade vegetable glycerine)– Herbs of choice
Gather the herbs you will use to make the tincture. For our herbal multivitamin, I use:– 3 parts Alfalfa– 2 parts Red Raspberry Leaf– 2 parts Dandelion Leaf– 1 part Stevia (optional-for taste)
The standard adult dose we take is 1 teaspoon up to three times a day as needed (or 1 tablespoon in the morning). Kids usually get 1/2 to 1 teaspoon per day)
If you are pregnant or may become pregnant, this tincture won’t be enough because there are some extra nutrients mothers-to-be need. I highly recommend Seek Health’s Prenatal.
