Shake, Pour, Enjoy

“Which essential oils do you recommend adding to the new NingXia Red?” is a popular question I see on a regular basis. My answer, “It depends on your focus.” I know, Iknow, that is probably not the answer you are looking for. I want to walk you through some steps for customizing your NingXia Red.

Step 1
Determine your need. Everyone has their own special desires. My focus is twofold; first, I like to add additional flavors to appeal to my pallet. For this I generally stick to the citrus oils. Lime is my current favorite, but be warned a little goes a long way. Second, I am interested in adding tangeritin to my diet. Thus, I add quite a bit of tangerine essential oil to my juice. Our Customer Care Department (CCD) is a great resources for determining which oils you use.

Step 2
Because I don’t normally change my needs day to day, I like to customize my entire bottle of juice by adding the oils directly to the bottle. This simplifies my morning routine and makes sure I don’t miss out on the benefits.

Step 3
Shake, pour, and enjoy. You now have a quick and simple way to make sure you are getting your customized daily whole-body nutrient infusion.

Here are a few simple recipes for creating your own customized bottle of NingXia Red. As always please follow individual label cautions and usage guidelines.

Tangeritin Blast (adds a splash of tangeritin)
10 drops tangerine essential oil
3 drops lime essential oil

Immunity (perfect for supporting a healthy immune system)
2 drops Thieves essential oil blend (can easily overpower the flavor)
4 drops lemon essential oil
4 drops tangerine essential oil

Slique Shot (great addition to the Slique regimen)
7 drops Slique Essence essential oil blend
2 drops lime essential oil blend

Good Morning Shot (wakes you up in the morning)
5 drops cinnamon bark essential oil
4 drops peppermint essential oil
2 drops orange essential oil
2 drops tangerine essential oil
1 drop lime essential oil

Please share any additional recipes you may have and the reasons for adding the specific oils.

    My eyesight depends on my daily shot of NingXia Red! I hate it when I run out. Tangerine sounds great. I love to diffuse it, it gives a warm feeling in the heart as well as bringing a less astringent tang to the air than lemon. However, the taste of the new NingXia red is flatter than that of the old, so I think I might choose lemon to zest it up.

    Thanks for all these great ideas! Does Ocotea only lower blood sugar levels or does it balance you whether you have a high or low blood sugar?

      Yes balances you whether you have high or low blood sugar.

    Love my NR in the morning! What can I add to it for an extra boost to help my cholestrol level?

      Hi CIndy,
      Add a drop or two of grapefruit oil! If you are on B/P meds then you can substitute Ledum.

        Does this mean if I’m on B/P meds I should not be taking grapefruit oil?

      cinnamon regulates blood sugar. However, some people get a rash from cinnamon, so trying it on the soles of his feet is advisable before putting it in a whole bottle. This oil is very, very strong, so half a drop rather than the two that sometimes come out inadvertently. I would not put Ocotea into the bottle, as it tastes foul. But Ocotea reduces the production of cortisol which then lowers the blood sugar.

      Hi Kathy,
      A regular reflexology session would be very helpful as it stimulates all the body organs and systems including the pancreas!
