Upon walking into Lifehouse Tonics + Elixirs, visitors are delighted with bright splashes of color against the pristine white walls and glass cases filled with rainbow colored elixirs. This magical place is not to be mistaken for another LA juice shop, but is much more. Owner Jack Latner 's imaginative shop offers adaptogen packed superfood blended tonics, treats and elixirs. Some of my favorites include The Greenhouse Chip made with almond milk, cashew milk, peppermint oil, cacao nibs, barley grass, wheat grass, oat grass, maca, eleuthero, astragalus, cordyceps, tocos, cacao butter, coconut oil, and lakanto. Let's just say it taste like a mint chocolate chip milkshake that just happens to contain healing ancient herbs that have been used for centuries all over the world. I also love their Blue Light Rain blended tonic that is a striking shade of blue due to an essential ingredient called Blue Majik. Blue Majik is an extract of spirulina that contains phycocyanin and is rich in protein, zinc, copper, manganese and B vitamins. If you are a lover of horchata, this blended tonic is a must.
Apart from all their tasty refreshments and treats, I also love their super- mushroom blends. These blends come in cute jars you can buy and take home to make your own adapatogenic creations. Each blend addresses specific needs and wellness goals. Mushroommunity aids in vitality and has helped me fight off oncoming colds. Thunderstruck provides an abundance of natural energy and goes great in homemade energy bites. Destiny Unbound helps improve cognitive function and can get your creative juices flowing. Mellow Mood is the perfect addition to a bedtime tea or in a smoothie on a cozy Sunday. Sunshine Daydream stimulates creativity and sexual healing. Lastly, Forever Young is a blend is filled with beautifying herbs like pearl powder, schissandra and goji berries to help clear your complexion and give you a radiant glow. I highly recommend purchasing a few of these powders and adding them to your meals or teas to reap all the benefits these powerful herbs have to offer.
Whether you are an LA local or visiting from out of town Lifehouse Tonics and Elixirs is definitely worth a visit. There is always something new to try and the owner and his staff are incredibly knowledgeable about all the herbs and mushrooms in their products. Lifehouse Tonic + Elixirs is #eatcuteapproved!
