My Beautiful Bottle and Turmeric Tea

Hello Gorgeous People!
Since we’ve been in Sydney we’ve been surrounded by beautiful scenery, great food and wonderful people…but it’s been a bit cold!
Sometimes it can be a bit challenging to stay hydrated when the temperature drops… So I’ve been loving our Turmeric Tea! It’s seriously delicious and warming and it’s soooo soooo good for you!

It is amazing! Since trying it 5 weeks ago I feel I could easily drink 2 litres of this stuff a day and you know what… I will.. I totally believe in listening to your body and when you’ve been through a period of stressful times, sometimes we need a big change to get back into balance!
So, why is this calming? Inflammation comes through irritation, this could be eating the wrong things, not getting enough sleep, the loss of a loved one, refined foods that are not recognised as food in the body, negative thinking and more… Inflammation can cause pain and lead to dis-ease in our amazing bodies!
So we need this Tea!
What do you need?
-1 nob Fresh Ginger (peeled and chopped)
-Same amount of Fresh Turmeric (peeled and chopped)
-1 litre of Almond milk (we love nutty bruce, you can make your own or buy an unsweetened variety)
-1 tsp coconut oil
-3-4 twists of freshly cracked black pepper
-ground cinnamon to sprinkle on
So simply add all the top ingredients  into a saucepan and gently bring to a simmer and lower the heat slightly for 10-15 minutes
Let cool and blend together until smooth
Pour into a mug and sprinkle with cinnamon
I’ve been using my ‘Awesome’ Bottle to store the extra Tea in and I think it just looks beautiful!

Now we are enjoying this beautiful drink, why does it work?
Simply put, there is something cool in turmeric called curcumin, a natural anti-inflammitory, in Ayurveda they recommend for the best results mixing this awesome little fella with black pepper to help absorbsion and to help heal the gut, mixed with the coconut oil, which aids absorbsion. Then almond milk is delicious and makes this creamy and feel super soothing!
I love this as a great start to the day or a warming pre-bed calmer!
Either way, you just cant go wrong or have too much, so enjoy gorgeous people!

Hello Gorgeous People!

I’m very excited to share with you a little project I’ve been working on and to tell you all more…

2 1/2 years ago I was sat on my yoga mat one sunny Friday afternoon after my morning sessions and I had a very clear vision. To create My Beautiful Bottle…

I knew exactly how I wanted them all to look and exactly what I wanted to do… All in an instant, so I got up and went straight to my good friends at our local print shop, sign city and John helped me print our first prototypes, now I can show you the first batch of My Beautiful Bottle…So here they are…

My beautiful glass bottle

My dream was to inspire everyone I could to firstly drink more water, (In 2013 1,158 elderly people in the UK died through dehydration) it is a major cause of tiredness and fatigue and also weight gain. A lot of the time we look for food, we are actually just thirsty! Then I want to inspire people to drink more fresh juices and more fresh smoothies to add more nutrients and vitality into their lives!

Supporting a great cause was next on the agenda, and we had already heard of an amazing charity, Gardens for Health International who help people in Rwanda to grow their own organic gardens that they can look after and eat from! Providing them with the education to make it sustainable and also to help them every step of the way, from choosing foods each family loves, to picking the right seeds for their soil! They really go above and beyond which is why we love them!

When it came to the design of each bottle I had a very clear vision that had been inspired by the research of Japanese Scientist, Dr. Emoto. His life work found that water frozen after sitting in bottles and jars with positive words crystallises into beautiful snow flakes compared to those in non worded bottles. His message was to always use kind, positive words towards yourself and others as our bodies are 70-90% water it might just effect us in a super positive way! His books are lovely ad so inspiring, always encouraging to look for the best in everyone.

So every bottle has the word Beautiful printed on it to positivity effect us and the water which will enter our beautiful bodies.

Each bottle is made from glass, which makes them fragile, just like us, which is wonderful because it teaches us to really look after something we love, it helps us practice mindfulness and the water always tastes better from a beautiful, non-toxic, ecological bottle. My amazing nutritionist always tells her clients to avoid plastic bottles as they ruin the planet and also our health.

If you got half of your minimum water intake from the shops, you’d use 547.5 bottles in a year, spend £355 and contribute towards the 15 million plastic bottles we throw away each day in the UK. This makes me really sad as it takes 500 years to decompose and kills our home in the mean time.

So, let’s be the change we wish to see and start taking more care of ourselves and our incredible planet…

I wish you all a wonderful day, Christmas and New Year!
