Is it really Fall before you have your first warm, spiced apple cider? 🍎
The other night my husband was away for work so after Tilia went to sleep, I decided to treat myself with a piping hot beverage that warms you to your bones.
Apple Cider is a great way to sneak some extra herbs into your body. Aromatic herbs perk up the taste while adding antioxidants and the medicinal herbs enhance the beverage with immune boosting benefits.
