COOLING CRYSANTHEMUM




Carolina's Crysanthemum Tisane

Poor a handful dried (yellow, not white, since these are sometimes bleached) whole crysanthemum flower buds in a teapot
Add purified boiled hot water

As the flowers get rehydrated, they start to unfold. Let sit in the pot for 4 minutes.

If you like to add sweetener, Stevia is a good solution. It is alkalizing and non acid in addition to other sweeteners, among a whole lot of other great benefits (this is also known to be one of the only sweeteners that diabetics can have. Hippocrates Health Institute).

Enjoy and have a beautiful Sunday!

OM VARUNAM NAMAH WHOA














So!

Today I am revealing. Something. Sacred.  
My studio. 
A desire. 
And part of a crazy amazing adventure.
Selfmade. 
Personal. 
As everything ells I do. 
Am BURSTING of excitement about it! 
JOY!!!
Been waiting for such long time. 
Longed for it. 
Yet, savored every step of it. 
For SO long. 
And finally, it's here.  
Finding it really, really (and probably unnecessary) hard to touch ground as I start writing!

A couple of month ago, I decided to go back to LA - the one place on this planet that I know for sure is holy ground to me and my creativity. It's where I create, flourish, thrive and feel at my absolute highest, all at once.
Mega powers going on here. 
Not only because of the wild and absolutely stunning nature with everything you can imagine of super powers like daily earth quakes, magical LA light, sunsets, space's, clean green medicine foods, packed bountiful farmers markets all year around.. 
The WIDE OPEN, WIIIDE OPEN Pacific ocean, fields and mountains. 
But also just because there's that pull inside. 
Then, the Desert. 
Dry, grounding red earth. 
Sage, tumbleweed... the words that comes to mind, are streaming away.. 
Yet, here you have it. Again. Of some sort. 
A big and bold desire - The City of Angels. 
Always been there. Always felt it.

In fact, thanks to my Dad, sitting in the backseat of his car. 
Going on long architectural trips together with our small family. 
Up along the coast. 
Experiencing light and space of California. 
Wright, Lautner, Schindler. 
I really am not sure I have the right words for it all. 
That's how grand. 
Being back. 
JUST RIGHT! 
Synchronicity. 
Period.

They say people forget what you say, but they will never forget how you made them feel. 

And with that being said, just wishing you a really grand weekend!
