Orange Soda Kombucha

I have several orange trees at my house so we have a lot of oranges. I’ve found dozens of ways to use oranges and really discovered how much they help me on a daily basis. Loaded with vitamin C and other nutrients they can strengthen my immune system and ward off allergies and are a fantastic way to detox the body. You need lots of vitamin C throughout the day, if your dealing with any kind of stress. Oranges and this drink can be the perfect way to get your daily dose!
