So the babies LOVED the home-made vitamins, and have been begging to learn how to make them. Today, their world is right… and so is mine. ‘Cause really, what makes a mama happier than babies who want to learn how to be self-sufficient, using healthy, natural tools… other than maybe having them volunteer to clean up the mess afterward LOL! …or maybe no fighting over who gets to use the coffee grinder to grind the herbs to a fine powder… (Hey, a gal can dream, can’t she?)
At any rate, we modified our recipe to fit what we had on-hand this time, and we wound up with this:
1/4 cup Nettles Powder
1/4 cup Mullein Powder (couldn’t find a link for this one, but beautiful herb 🙂
2/3 cup Cinnamon Powder
2/3 cup Rosehips Powder
1/3 cup Ginger Powder
2/3 cup Oat Straw Powder
1/2 tsp. Real Salt
2 Tbsp Hydrilla Verticillata (Fresh-Water Seaweed “Noxious Weed”, but GREAT supplement!)
1 1/3 cup Honey
1/2 tsp Orange Extract
Maybe 2/3 cup? Cocoa Powder (for rolling the vitamins in after they’re formed)
Roll dough into small balls, and roll the balls in cocoa powder.
This time, we put babies to work doing this part (with clean hands, of course), and it went much faster. I’m thinking that tiny fingers are just much better at this than mine are. I gave each kiddo a miniature ice cube tray, and had them put one vitamin in each hole when they were done. Works great, and, stored in the freezer, they should last forever. Once they’re frozen individually, I can put them all in one baggie & back in the freezer for space-saving storage.
Two little vitamins, and 2 Tbsp Lemon Flavored Cod Liver Oil, and 1/2 tsp kelp daily (I don’t put the kelp in the vitamins b/c the kids get the “treat vitamins” as a reward for downing the CLO & Kelp. Not sure it would work as well if the “treat vitamins” were more kelp-flavored. They line up & open their mouths like little birds for all of the above as it stands, so I’m not messin’ with it LOL!
I’m no doc, and don’t pretend to be one. I am therefore not legally licensed to diagnose, cure, treat, prevent, or otherwise mitigate any disease, and neither is the stuff I generally choose for healing… but then, I’ve not been
educated indoctrinated by boards with big pharma reps on them, either so do your own research and find what works for you
