Detox Salad with Immunity Boosting Essential Oils
The second anyone starts getting sick in our house the On Guard essential oil comes out. Actually, let's be honest. It's always out because it smells amazing, it protects against environmental threats, it naturally boosts immunity, and since it's doTERRA, we are all able to consume it. Yummmm... (you can read a little bit more about this after the recipe)
This salad is quick and easy, and has so many unbelievable health benefits such as...
Flax Oil: Amazing source of omega-3, lowers bad cholesterol, great for eye, heart, digestive, and skin health, boosts immune system
Apple Cider Vinegar: balances pH in the body, helps curb appetite and break down fat, lowers blood pressure, cholesterol, and inflammation, promotes healthy gut bacteria, and more
Cruciferous Vegetables: reduce inflammation, supports detoxification, protects the brain, stimulates immune response, and balances estrogen
