NUTRITION: SUNPOTION MAGIC
I LOVE SUNPOTION.
I was gifted these wildy rare and potent tonics and herbs from the lovely souls at SunPotion. I've known about them for many, many years and I'm lucky enough to have them in my possession. The only herb that I'm familiar with and use on a weekly basis in Ashwagandha, and I have definitely noticed a shift in my hormones and overall well being. I can't even imagine how epic these other herb tonics will be. These will be added to my smoothies and soups, and I will report back in a month or two on their transformative qualities.
***NOTE: These are organic, wild crafted, and consciously sourced potions. They use cobalt blue glass jars because of their healing energetic signature! These truly are the best of the best.
