This creamy, rose infused tonic is delicious and is full of beautifying herbs and superfoods.
Pearl powder (yes, actually crushed up pearls) has been used in the chinese orient for thousands of years as a beauty tonic. It contains the powerful anti-aging antioxidant, SOD that will help to smooth wrinkles and heal blemishes.
Schizandra berry, known as the five flavour fruit, is used in chinese tonic herbalism to bring moisture and a glow to the skin, a brightness to the eyes, a sharper mind, and energized body. It is believed that consuming schizandra for 100 days straight will change your life.
The collagen peptides provide you with the building blocks to support optimal collagen production in your skin and joints and when added to the elixir it will turn this elixir into a meal or snack with a perfect balance of fats, proteins and carbs.
