2-Minute Detox Drink

Let’s face it: we live in a toxic world. We take in toxins every day, even with a clean diet and natural home and bodycare products. So, let’s do something everyday to help our bodies deal with these toxins.

This is my version of Daily Health Post’s quick detox drink. I dropped the cinnamon powder, which is hard to mix in, and replaced it with cinnamon tincture. Now you don’t need to use a blender, and it is even easier to start your day in a healthy way.

  1. Thank you so much for this. I imagine the acv, lemon juice and honey could be mixed and made in advance … a week’s worth … and stored in the fridge? Just need to add the tinctures and the water in the morning …

    • The only debate is whether it is better to use freshly squeezed lemon juice. But yes, we have to find ways to be healthy with our busy schedules.

  4. Cinnamon tincture… Could I use cinnamon essential oil? Just curious.

    • I am cautious about recommending internal use of essential oil. Not all are handled in a food grade manner. More importantly, they are so much stronger than tinctures, and cinnamon in particular can be irritating to skin and mucus membranes.
