-The High-C blend is a combination of herbs that I love due to it’s antioxidant content, nourishing properties, and significant level of vitamin C — all of which strength the immune system and boost the body’s ability to protect itself (even assisting the skin in it’s ability to provide natural sun protection).
-When making an herbal infusion for popsicles you’ll want to make it strong by using double the herbs that you normally would.
-Get creative! Any combination of herbs can be made into a tea and then frozen into popsicles. This is a great way to administer herbal infusions to children.
