ROSE’S WARMING GOLDEN MILK

When the frost sparkles on the ground and the air is light grey, golden comforting warmth radiates not from the sun but from this magical drink. 

Known in Indian Ayurveda for its soporific, calming and digestive qualities, the magnificence of this elixir lies in its simplicity. Turmeric calms the nerves and reduces anxiety and inflammation (1), enhanced by black pepper, while cinnamon is thought to regulate blood sugar levels and ginger to reduce toxins.

Slowly warm the milk in a pan with the spices and let them infuse for 15 minutes or more. Strain the milk and add honey to taste, top with bee pollen, sink back into your favourite chair and breathe in the aromas (2).
