BULLET PROOF MATCHA + Happiness Tonic

BULLET PROOF MATCHA + Happiness Tonic



Have you ever heard of bulletproof coffee? I forget where I first heard about it, but I do remember thinking, "That sounds interesting." And I'll pretty much try anything that I think sounds interesting. Why not? I will say though that I've read some sources that recommend drinking this type of thing every morning in place of breakfast, which I do not agree with. Although I do love doing it often I don't agree doing it instead of eating a healthy meal. For me this is a tasty alternative to coffee or plain green tea. But if you've never tried bulletproof coffee, or if you have and didn't like it, I still say try this green tea version as I like it even more than the coffee version. Also, to make it even more powerful it's awesome to have it with extra supporting herbs. This makes you feel naturally high AND herbs  get metabolize more efficiently accompanied by a healthy oil like in this case coconut oil. 

Recipe:

2 cups hot water

1/2 teaspoon matcha powder

1/2 tsp Anima Mundi Happiness Tonic

1/2 tablespoon coconut oil

1tsp Coconut crystals or Add your choice of sweetener 

Heat your water until just before it boils. Add the matcha and whisk until no powdery clumps remain. In a blender combine the green tea with the butter and coconut oil. Place a towel over the top of the blender (in case any hot liquid seeps out) and blend for 30-45 seconds on high. The butter and oil will dissolve and the high speed will incorporate some air, giving you a little foam on top (like a latte). Serve hot.

APHRODISIAC GIN TONIC : farm to bar cocktail

APHRODISIAC GIN TONIC : farm to bar cocktail



A perfect valentines evening cocktail to share with your loved ones.

Make your cocktails ultra delicious, medicinal and actually better for you by adding medicinal herbs. Weather you want it alcohol free or with some artisan spirits, you can enjoy the delight of crafting a conscious and delicious cocktail. It's really exciting to see talented mixologists and bartenders using high quality medicinals within their bars, crafting a one of a kind experience with ultra fresh ingredients.

There are tons of fresh herbs, fruits, veggies, artisan spirits that you can pick from. Adding medicinal herbs to your drink not only boosts up the healing power, it also is better for the body. Trust me, your liver will be grateful! 

Get as creative as you desire. If you don't have an ingredient, substitute for something that is in season and readily available around you. Also, I highly suggest never using commercial mixers, as they are so bad for you and taste pretty terrible. You can make your own infusions and have fun playing around.

Here we have a Hibiscus Euphoria Gin Tonic.

If you do not want to make this alcohol-free, I suggest substituting with Kombucha or Jun. 

INGREDIENTS:

- Hibiscus flowers

- Sparkling water

- Fresh spearmint 

- 1tsp Euphoria Aphrodisiac Elixir (increase if you'd like it stronger)

- Artisan Gin of choice (if you cant find one use Hendricks) 

- Lemon Slices

DIRECTIONS:

This recipe is for 1 serving. 

Steep the hibiscus flowers in hot water for about 4 minutes.

In a glass place some ice and add 1-2oz of gin. Substitute with kombucha or jun to make it non-alcoholic.

Add 1tsp of Euphoria Elixir.

 

Strain and add an ice cube or two to cool off the hibiscus water.

Add about 1/2 way of hibiscus water, and top it off with sparkling water.

Add mint leaves and a lemon slice to garnish.

Enjoy!!

 

 

 

HEART + SOUL Elixir

HEART + SOUL Elixir



Sisterhood and herbal medicine combine for a magical meeting setting the stage for the heart and the spirit. Below, we share the recipes from a few of our favorite alchemists and sister goddesses, Sima and Melissa. 

"My dear sister Sima of HOUSE OF CITRINE joined me recently for a blissful afternoon of elixir crafting and sharing her favorites for soothing the mind, body, + spirit.  She is something of a potion goddess this one, and her concoctions are nothing short of magic.  Instantly transforming cellular euphoria.  Utilizing the highest quality, deeply vibrational ingredients, she feels into what the body is needing and creates intuitively from there.  Obviously much needed these days.  

We are in the strangest, most traumatizing of times.  That is absolutely an understatement and I'm not sure how else to put it gracefully without losing my cool.  But here we are.  And so our full time self care, self love, spirit lifting mission commences.  Along with communing with our brothers + sisters, uniting our voices, and getting louder and louder and louder.  In order to do so, our spirits must stay high and Sima's elixirs are such a beautiful way to deliver potent + powerfully supportive herbs, flower essences, + adaptogens directly to our nervous systems to assist in finding a calm, focused, uplifted, gently energized, + soothed internal space.  A space from which we can then do the work that is desperately needed in this world.

Here is Sima with her beautiful alchemy ::


HEART + SOUL ELIXIR

PROCESS :: Mix together.  Enjoy this fermented heart opener instead of a alcoholic beverage with your friends. This will be sure to give you a boost. When you enjoy this elixir think of all the things you're grateful for and it will bring a smile to your face. Everything in this elixir is from Mother Earth. We have been blessed to drink her nectar."
