Want to make your own herbal bitters? Here's a recipe we've used at my house over the years. It came to me from my daughter-in-law, who believes she got it from herbalist, Susan Weed.
Combine 1 oz. each of these ground herbs and put into a large glass jar with a lid: cardamon pods, orange peel, gentian root, oregon grape root. Pour this liquid over the herbs in the jar: 10 ounces of Everclear and 10 ounces of spring water, or 20 ounces of 100 proof vodka. Some people I know have also used brandy. Steep for at least 2 weeks, shaking well each day. Then strain & put in 2 or 4-oz dropper bottles and store in a cool dry place out of sunlight. Makes a great gift for friends and family.

Having a positive outlook today can lead to a longer life. Researchers have found that people judged to be optimistic were 77 percent less likely to die of a heart attack or stroke regardless of their age, weight, and smoking habits. That’s a good reason to smile!
