LIQUID GOLD: Homemade Jiggly Bone Broth - MY SKIN SPOT

The Ultimate Elixir for Your Skin

At MSS, we believe that achieving healthy, glowing skin goes beyond topical treatments. The foods we consume play a critical role on the health of our skin, and body. One of our favourite nourishing recipes is our homemade jiggly bone broth. It's packed with collagen, anti-inflammatory spices, and antioxidants, making it not only delicious but incredibly beneficial for your skin and overall health.

Why Bone Broth is Great for Your Skin

Bone broth has been a cherished remedy for centuries, and here's why it's so good for your skin:

1. Collagen Boost: Collagen is essential for skin elasticity and reducing wrinkles. As we age, collagen production decreases. Bone broth is a natural collagen source, helping to keep your skin firm and youthful.

2. Hydration: Gelatin in bone broth helps your skin retain moisture, keeping it hydrated and supple.

3. Anti-Inflammatory: Chronic inflammation can cause various skin problems like acne and eczema. Our broth is loaded with anti-inflammatory spices that help reduce inflammation and promote clearer skin.

4. Nutrient-Rich: Bone broth is full of essential minerals like calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus, collagen and 10g protein/cup vital for skin health. These nutrients support the repair and regeneration of skin cells.

5. Gut Health: There's a strong link between gut health and skin health. Bone broth contains glutamine, an amino acid that helps heal the gut lining, reducing inflammation and improving skin appearance.

How to Make Our Homemade Jiggly Bone Broth

This recipe ensures you get a collagen-rich, flavorful, and nutrient-dense bone broth. We simmer it overnight to extract maximum goodness from the bones. There are multiple methods to the bone prep. Some may prefer to roast the bones prior to boiling. This brings out a bold flavour (more umami please)!! Another option is to boil bones for 5 minutes, drain water, and fill with cold water and bring to a boil.


- 3-4lb of high-quality beef or chicken bones (preferably grass-fed or organic. You can get these at any butcher store)
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar (aids in extracting the nutrients)
- 1 large onion, roughly chopped (optional: you can pan seer onion to bring smokey flavour but not necessary)
- 2-3 carrots, roughly chopped
- 2-3 celery stalks, roughly chopped
- 5 cloves garlic, smashed
- 1-2 inch piece of fresh ginger, sliced
- 1-inch piece of fresh turmeric, sliced (or 2 teaspoon ground turmeric)
- 2 bay leaves or fresh rosemary (tip: if you choose chicken bones, they pair nicely with rosemary)
- 1 teaspoon black peppercorns
- 1-2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 bunch of fresh parsley or cilantro or basil 
- fresh habanero pepper (optional)
- 1 lemon 
- 10 cups filtered water

Other Spices To Consider : Paprika, Cumin, Cayenne Pepper


1. Prepare the Bones: If you are roasting the bones first, place bones in oven for 20 minutes before boiling. If you aren't roasting, place the bones in a large pot with water. Bring to a boil, and boil for 5-10 minutes. Drain the water. Add the 10 cups of filtered water or enough to cover the bones. Add apple cider vinegar. 

2. Add Vegetables and Spices: Add the chopped onion, carrots, celery, garlic, ginger, turmeric, bay leaves, peppercorns, and sea salt and everything else you plan to put into your broth.

3. Simmer: Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cover and let it simmer for at least 12 hours, ideally overnight. The longer it simmers, the more nutrients are extracted from the bones.

4. Strain: After simmering, remove from heat and let it cool slightly. Strain the broth through a fine-mesh sieve into a large bowl to remove the solids. Discard the bones and vegetables.

5. Add Fresh Herbs: For an extra boost of antioxidants, add a bunch of fresh parsley or cilantro or basil to the hot broth and let it steep for about 10 minutes before removing. You may also add your full lemon.

6. Cool and Store: Let the broth cool to room temperature. You’ll notice it becomes jiggly once refrigerated, thanks to the gelatin from the bones. Store in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to a week or freeze for longer storage.
