So like I mentioned earlier I have been fortunate enough to get to go to apothecary classes with Elderberry Spirits. For the last two weeks, we were focusing on herbal medicines. At the start of the meeting, she had me try a tincture and tell her how it made me feel.
I took three drops on the tongue of the deep red elixir and waited. It was a very quickly warm tingly and then a giddy happiness just kind of spread over me. Enough so that it made me laugh out loud. This so far has been one of my favorite things. So I just had to share this simple recipe with you.
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Dried Basil
1/2 tsp Dried Hibiscus (you can’t get this normally mixed in with the Mexican spices)
3 tsp Brandy (or Apple Cider Vinegar or Vodka)
Let sit for 1 week and then use 2 to 3 drops on tongue as desired for a quick pick me up
