"These Adaptogen Pastilles with Schizandra & Orange are infused with Schizandra Berry powder, Orange Peel Powder, Turmeric Root Powder, and Honey. They are delightfully tart with a touch of sweetness & loaded with Adaptogenic power! Schizandra or Wu Wei Zi “Five Flavored Berry” as it is called in Traditional Chinese Medicine is a highly renowned adaptogen that works on all areas of the body as a harmonizer and stress reliever. It is know for it’s unique taste, which incorporates all five flavors represented in Traditional Chinese Medicine including sweet, sour, pungent, bitter, and salty. This unique flavor profile allows this berry to access all 12 meridians represented in this ancient Chinese healing system, including the lungs, large intestine, spleen, stomach, heart, small intestine, bladder, kidneys, pericardium, triple warmer, liver, and gallbladder. Although it does have a special affinity for the lungs, liver, and kidneys, as it strengthens the lungs, increases the vital force of the kidneys, and supports overall liver function & detoxification".

To create, begin by slowing drizzling the honey over the schizandra berry powder in a small bowl until a dough-like consistency is formed. You may need to add more honey or powder depending on the consistency of your mixture.
Once your dough-like consistency is formed, mold the dough into balls using your fingers.
To complete, roll the balls in the orange peel + turmeric root powder mix until they are fully coated. This will keep them from sticking to each other. Keep your pastilles stored in an air-tight container & in a cool dark place or in the refrigerator until ready to use
