Gut-Lovin' Citrus Gummies


My gut lovin' gummies were a hit yesterday at my oils class 👌🏼
Made with gelatin, these gummies (yes, lollies) are great for your gut, immune system, skin, hair and nails! Gelatin is derived from collagen, which makes up almost 70% of proteins in your skin. As we age, our collagen supplies slowly diminish which is why our skin starts to show the signs. 

Recipe is:
1/3 cup of your choice of juice (lemon, orange, mandarin or even kombucha)
2 tbsp organic gelatin
2-3 tbsp xylitol depending on your sweet tooth (xylitol is a natural sweetener that's great for your mouth microbiome)
4-6 drops of your choice of essential oil (lemon, wild orange or grapefruit)

Add your juice, gelatin and xylitol to a small saucepan on low-medium heat and consistently stir until the gelatin and xylitol have melted (about 5 minutes)
Turn off the heat, add your essential oil an give it a quick stir
Then simply pour them into ice cube or silicone moulds and let them set in the fridge!
Make sure you move relatively quick as it will start setting at room temperature.
