Earl Grey Latte

I made this warming drink this morning to comfort my tired body and mind. It’s smooth and frothy, bright and floral, delicate and sweet.

Do you ever experience night time blues? That’s not the proper terminology but it’s what I call it. This particularly heavy wave of melancholy that hits when it reaches about 8/9pm almost every night. I’ve never been a good sleeper. For as long as I can remember I’ve had trouble falling asleep, staying asleep and all too frequent read more

Rose Chai Latte with Tahini

Scorpio season begins tomorrow and we had a new moon in Libra on Thursday night. I’m feeling a lot of different energy right now.

Magic Matcha Latte

We all know of my affinity for making potions and tonics and all the goodness that comes with them. So, here’s another drink recipe for you (I could write a whole blog on magical drinks alone I think…), my mid-morning magic matcha pick-me-up.

This is a recipe I get asked for quite a lot so it makes sense that it would have its own place here on Living Alchemy. You can make it as basic or as fancy as you like, its an easy recipe to tailor to suit your needs day-to-day I find. Some read more

Matcha Mint Smoothie

I swear matcha is magical. The energy and feeling of zen it brings makes it the perfect way to start your morning. I do tend to have my matcha warm in a mug and packed with goodness and adaptogens but this smoothie is a fun, cooling alternative. Especially during the hotter summer months.

Naturally sweetened from the banana and cooling thanks to the mint it gives you a nice kick to get out the door and get going. The addition of tocos adds some creaminess as well as a boost of vitamin E – read more
