How to Make Vitamin C Gummies
A convenient way to support general wellness is through the daily consumption of LĒVO-infused gummies made with (your favorite) herbs and vitamins.
This recipe for vitamin and botanically-rich gummies is quick and easy. After a month’s worth of consistent consumption, you may notice some health benefits from the homemade infused gummies.
Bite-sized edibles make it easy to track your regular intake of Vitamin C and botanicals so you don’t overdo it. We do recommend trying just one first and waiting about 2 hours to objectively understand their potency.
Why Should I Add Vitamin C to my Botanically-Infused Gummies?
Vitamin C increases blood antioxidant levels which are necessary for fighting inflammation. It reduces the risk of chronic heart disease and promotes general wellness.
It also boosts the immune system which is why it is recommended to prevent colds. One study found that 200mg a day can reduce cold symptoms.
It is also vital in the body’s collagen development, so it promotes healthy skin, hair, and gastrointestinal health. It also promotes better sleep and enhances joint and bone health.
Taking Vitamin C in small doses is best for bioavailability, so having a gummy several times a day is ideal. The human body does not store Vitamin C efficiently, so using simple recipes like this one will promote regular consumption.
Flavonoids also support bioavailability, and they reduce oxidative stress. The combination of terpenes, Vitamin C, and flavonoids make these snacks burst with health benefits.

DIY Vitamin C and Flower Infused Gummies
- A large saucepan
- A large stirring bowl
- A stirring spoon
- 4 tbsp of gelatin powder (unflavored or flavored)
- 1 cup of orange juice (or grape, cranberry, etc.)
- 1 teaspoon of Vitamin C powder or Liquid Vitamin C
- 2-3 teaspoons of homemade infused oil
Note: You’ll need to use lecithin because it is a natural preservative and emulsifier. That means it will work to bind and stabilize your infused oil with the water in the juice.
You can also add optional ingredients to customize Vitamin C gummies. Add 1-2 tablespoons of honey, or a half teaspoon of vanilla extract or another organic extract like orange to customize flavoring. You can even add probiotic powder or some of your other favorite supplements to this recipe.
Preparing the Infused Gelatin Mixture
Mix 1 cup of preferred juice, lecithin, and gelatin in a large saucepan, and heat until gelatin is well-dissolved in the juice with constant stirring.
- Once the mixture has completely cooled, pour it into the large mixing bowl, and then stir in the Vitamin C powder.
- Add 2-3 teaspoons of botanically-infused oil. Stir again.
- Carefully pour the gummy liquid into the molds.
- Refrigerate the gummies for 4 hours.
Many commercial Vitamin C gummies have preservatives and artificial sweeteners, but the LĒVO home infusion machine allows you to customize recipes and substitute ingredients. And when you’re ready to-share your creations with @LEVO_Oil and be sure to tag them as #LEVOmade.
