New Collaboration with Prism of Threads

Excited to announce my latest apothecary collaboration with Tracy of Prism of Threads! We created some special items just for the holidays that are available NOW on her site.

GUARDIAN MIST

"Guardian Mist is inspired by healing plants that have been used for centuries to establish sacred space. Your body is a temple, and this blend is the offering. White Sage purifies and rejuvenates the skin, Rose nourishes and protects, and Lavender calms the skin with its anti-inflammatory properties. Copal and Palo Santo are native to Mexico and South America and have been used by shamans to purify and cleanse.

This mist is a perfect addition to your daily beauty ritual. Use on body, face and environment. I personally love to use this mist as a recharge, after bathing (or instead of bathing), and just before meditation. "

EUCALYPTUS BATH SALT + VESSEL

"Enhance your self-care ritual and cleansing experience with this 6" Red Stoneware corked jar in Power Turquoise. Each vessel is handmade with care, thus each one will vary slightly in color and pattern. Comes with  8oz of detoxifying bath salt made of Dead Sea Salt, Aloe, Sea Kelp and Eucalyptus Essential Oil."

DIVINE GODDESS SOAP

"Indulge your sacred feminine spirit with this beautiful floral based handcrafted Divine Goddess soap. Organic essential oils of Ylang Ylang, Rosewood and Lavender, naturally colored with Rose Clay. Topped with healing flowers and herbs."

INDIGO FOREST SOAP

"Wander through the Indigo Forest with this earthy blend of Vetiver and Clary Sage. Naturally colored with Indigo, French Green Clay, Kelp and Rosehip Seed. Indigo has been used in traditional medicine from ancient China to ancient Greece for its alkaline healing properties. "

Healthy Recipe: Mango Banana Smoothie with Chia Seeds


Mango is by far one of my favorite fruits. I picked up some frozen Mango at Trader Joe's recently and figured they would be a good ingredient for a nice smoothie, so I created this recipe that is somewhat Indian inspired and also inspired by Moon Juice's Golden Milk, which just blows my mind every time I drink it! 

The added flavors of Nutmeg, Cinnamon and healing Tumeric give this smoothie a little bit of a kick, then I top it off with Chia Seeds to really get my body going.

1 cup Almond Coconut Milk (Blue Diamond is my favorite, or just regular Coconut Milk or Almond Milk, I like the two mixed together)
1/2 Cup Orange Juice
1 - Banana
1/2 cup Frozen Mango Chunks
1 tsp Tumeric Root Powder
Pinch of Cinnamon
Pinch of Nutmeg (freshly grated is the best)
1 Spoonful of local honey (or Agave for vegans)

Blend together for about a minute. Pour into a nice glass then add about a tablespoon of chia seeds and stir with a spoon. This is great for breakfast or whenever you need a fresh pick me up in the middle of the day.

Healthy Recipe: Slow Cooker Vegan Chili with Butternut Squash


This super hearty and healthy recipe will surely soothe your soul and satisfy your tummy. Butternut squash is a favorite of mine and is so versatile to cook with.

14 oz kidney beans, drained and rinsed

Healthy Recipe : Banana Coconut Chia Seed Pudding



I love this recipe, so simple and healthy! I usually make this for breakfast time when I need something on the go for an energy boost. Chia seeds are very rich in fiber, when combined with water or any liquid substance they swell up causing them to "gel". It is because of this the recipe really works, creating a thick and pudding-like consistency. 

All you need is:

-Blender
-1 cup of Coconut Milk (I like Trader Joe's brand in Vanilla)
-1 Banana
-3 Tablespoons of Chia Seeds


Blend together Coconut Milk and Banana for about a minute. Pour into a bowl and add chia seeds. Mix, then set in the fridge for at least 20 minutes. I like to make this the night before and let it sit overnight. SO YUMMY!!!
