My daughter downs NingXia Red® 2-oz. singles daily! She says they taste like flowers, which must be a good thing because she always asks for seconds. She enjoys them the most when they’re frozen. It’s like a slushy but without all of the artificial colors and excess sugar. It’s a treat I can feel great about giving her and that she adores eating! As any parent knows, those can be hard to come by.

NingXia Red Orange Popsicles

Makes about 6 1/2-cup popsicles

  • 1 cup water

  • 2 cups NingXia Red®

  • 3 drops Orange Vitality essential oil

Combine water, NingXia Red, and Orange essential oil in a bowl. Divide between popsicle molds, leaving 1/4 inch at the top for expansion.

Freeze overnight or until completely frozen before removing from molds.

NingXia Red Jellies


  • 1 cup NingXia Red

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons agar agar powder (gelatin alternative)

  • 4 teaspoons honey

  • 3 drops Grapefruit Vitality essential oil

  • 3 drops Lime Vitality essential oil

  • Silicon molds


  1. Combine the NingXia Red, agar agar powder, and honey in a saucepan. Mix with a metal spoon until fully dissolved and heat on medium-high.

  2. Once boiling, remove from heat immediately and stir in the essential oils. Taste for sweetness. The mixture should be almost too sweet, since the flavors will mellow during cooling.

  3. Pour the mixture into silicon molds.

  4. Let your molds cool in the refrigerator for at least an hour until set.

  5. Keep leftovers in the fridge or a cool place.

  6. Enjoy!

We often use a DIY essential oil ‘brave spray’ of Lavender, Rose, and water to help us get through tough moments at our house. When our five-year-old has a big mess to clean up or we’re trying to potty train our two-year-old, we let them use the brave spray for a comforting scent that offers a little boost of courage. The brave spray always comes out before bedtime. The kiddos spray it in their closets, under their beds, and even in the cracks between the floor boards—any place a monster might be hiding. The ritual of the brave spray helps them overcome their fears, and the floral smell helps them have happy thoughts.
