· Anti-inflammatory properties

The Sublime Beauty Daily Body Oil contains a variety of vitamins and minerals that are great for your skin including Vitamin E, sesame oil, aloe, argan, and sweet almond. It contains no additives, no chemicals, and no fragrances- simply pure oil.

Victoria's Kitchen Organic Lemonade

- Certified organic
- Low calorie
- A hint of cold-pressed organic ginger
- lightly sweetened with 9g of organic agave
- 40 calories per serving
- GMO Free
- Gluten Free
- Extremely refreshing

"Lemonade is the ultimate traditional family drink and also one of my favorite summer beverage, but I couldn't find one that had the perfect balance of sweet and tart flavors.

Most lemonades on the market are either zero calories/diet or really high in sugar (up to 50-60g per bottle). When we couldn't find a lemonade that was just sweet enough, we decided to develop our own.

Our organic lemonade is currently available in select retailers in Southern California and will soon be available nationwide. SRP is $1.99-$2.49.

It comes in a 16oz glass bottle"
We love the added kick of ginger to the classic lemonade. Their lemonade is made with 5g of fresh cold-pressed ginger, lemon juice, a touch of cayenne pepper to bring out the taste of the ginger and a hint of agave to give it a light sweetness. This beverage has no added flavors, or preservatives and has a wonderful balance of sweet and tart flavors. It makes a wonderful beverage on a hot summer day and all year long! In addition, this lemonade is dairy, gluten, GMO free and vegan. We highly recommend it.
We had the opportunity to inverview David Menaine, Founder of Victoria's Kitchen Natural Beverages in June. You may view the interview here
