I love experimenting with new recipes and especially healing tonics using teas, spices and essential oils that soothe and comfort. So, I was very excited to finally receive my copy of Whole Beauty by the lovely Shiva Rose (I'm addicted to her Glow Face Balm!), and after enjoying her luxurious, holistic practice rituals, I've decided to share her yummy Turmeric Golden Milk recipe. As someone who also struggles with an autoimmune issue, I watch my diet and do my best to avoid irritants and inflammatory foods. If you're feeling the need for self-care after a long and harsh winter, personal or professional burnout, or any personal struggle, I recommend her gorgeous book as an offering to yourself--a little TLC. Enjoy this recipe from Shiva Rose!

1/2 cup water
8 ounces milk, preferably raw or any kind of milk or nut milk that you like
2 tablespoons almond oil
Raw honey to taste
1/8 teaspoon cardamom or ghee (optional)
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper (optional)
