Need something to make you beautiful from the inside out? How about a special recipe from Elizabeth Ardens’ Red Door Spa? We’ve got that! About 10 years ago, nutritional expert, Natalia Rose, shared her recipe that has been dubbed “Liquid Gold Elixir”. Some claim it improves circulation, purifies the blood, removes toxins from the body and can even rid you of stubborn fat deposits. Not only that, but in literally minutes you can make it in your own home for next to nothing!
Liquid Gold Elixir
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 Tbsp. bee pollen*
1 tsp cayenne chile powder
1/3 cup minced garlic
3 Tbsp. minced ginger
3 Tbsp. Nama shoyu (raw soy sauce)
3 Tbsp. honey
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil or cold-pressed flax seed oil
It can be used as a salad dressing or drizzled on vegetables. Leave out the cayenne chile powder and you can use it as a skin lotion or add cornmeal and it becomes a fabulous body scrub. Rose says you can even drink it straight.
In all honesty we haven’t tried it long enough to substantiate all these wonderful claims but it’s made with really healthy ingredients and it tastes good so why not give it a try? It certainly can’t hurt you and, who knows, it just might lead to more love, more joy, and more abundant and beautiful living 🙂
