3 medicinal flowers to grow in your garden 🌼

SOAP RECIPE:

Lavender & Oats 🌾🪻
- 500g soap base
- 2 tbsp oats
- 20 drops of lavender essential oil
- 2 tbsp dry lavender flowers

Instructions: 🥣🫧
- Melt your soap base in a double boiler.
- If using shea butter, ensure it’s grated, not chopped, as it takes longer to melt than the soap base.
- If using powder, first mix it thoroughly with an oil to eliminate clumps, then add it to the melted soap.
- Once melted, turn off the heat, then add your oils and the remaining ingredients.
- Note: Any extra ingredient you add or change can make the mixture harder, less oily, or solidify faster.
- Mix well and pour into the silicone mold.
- Let it solidify, then store in an airtight container.

CALENDULA SKIN SALVE:

- Sun dry your fresh calendula for about 5-7 days
- infuse your favourite oil with dry calendula for 30 days (I used olive oil)
- In the top part of a double boiler, add 1 cup of your calendula oil and roughly 3 x tbsp soy wax or bees wax. You can also add any essential oil  but I prefer to keep it as natural as possible.
- Add water to the bottom section of the double boiler so you can melt but not burn the mixture.
- While still hot, carefully pour the mix in your containers and leave it to cool down until completely cold.
- Apply a thin layer to your skin and enjoy the benefits of this incredible skin salve 🙏🏻

NASTURTIUM:

NASTURTIUM LEAVES VELLUTATA:

- 15/20 x nasturtium leaves
- Any vegetables you like
- 3 x Tbsp oat cream
- Olive oil
- Optional: old bread crutons

*keep some flowers to decorate the dish

NASTURTIUM FLOWERS BUTTER:

- 250 g x plant based butter
- 1 x handfuls flowers
- Salt & pepper

NASTURTIUM SEEDS SALT:

Lion’s mane mushrooms are an astonishing steak replacement, offering a juicy texture and being packed with beneficial properties that enhance cognitive functions, including memory and concentration.

My dear friend @dereksarno dedicated three decades to developing this recipe and he came to mine to show me how it’s done! 

Having grown up in Italy, where I ate meat almost daily, I decided to stop eating it five years ago, even though I genuinely loved the taste. It’s wonderful to discover alternatives that mimic those flavors. I’m simply trying to offer options and would never insist on you adopting my view or suggest that you stop doing anything.

Press method: press first to shape and condense then marinade and cook to finish
 
STEP BY STEP:

Marinade:

½ cup boiling water
1 Shot Red Wine
1 Shot Olive Oil
1 shot Soy Sauce 
2 Tablespoons Beet Powder
2 tablespoons Fresh Thyme, chopped
1 Tablespoon Garlic, granulated.
1 Tablespoon Onion, granulated.
1 tablespoons Black Pepper

Add all dry ingredients to a large bowl then add boiling water and wet ingredients and whisk together marinade.

Focaccia it’s an Italian staple and @animamundiherbals sent me exactly what I needed to elevate its beauty. 

They provide an incredible selection of herbal remedies to use as is or craft your own concoction.

Butterfly Pea Flower a.k.a the Blue Healer is rich with antioxidants and is said to balance the nervous system.

Ingredients:
 
- 400ml water 
- 7g instant yeast 
- 1 tsp sugar 
- 1 tbsp @animamundiherbals butterfly pea flower powder 
- 4 tbsp olive oil 
- 2 tsp salt 
- 400g strong bread flour 
- Whole garlic cloves 
- Black olives, pitted 
- Fresh rosemary 
- Pickled red onions (optional)
 
Instructions: 
 
- In a large mixing bowl, combine water, yeast, and sugar. 
- Let it sit for 5 minutes until foamy. 
- Stir in pea flower powder, olive oil, and salt and use a squeeze of lemon to turn the colour from blue to purple.
- Gradually add flour, mixing until combined but do not overwork. 
- Cover the bowl with a wax wrapping cloth and let the dough proof for 30 minutes. 
- After the first proof, fold the dough from four corners towards the middle. Let it proof for another 30 minutes. Use olive oil on your hands to prevent sticking. 
- After the second proof, knead the dough on a surface to create a round shape like a bread loaf. Place it in a greased baking pan, cover, and refrigerate overnight. 
- The next day, take the dough out of the fridge and let it come to room temperature. Allow it to proof until doubled in size. 
- Preheat the oven to 250°C (480°F). 
- Drizzle olive oil over the dough and scatter whole garlic cloves, black olives, and fresh rosemary on top. - Use your fingers to press the dough and create some holes for the olive oil to penetrate it. 
- Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and cooked through. 
- Remove from the oven and top with pickled red onions.

Since the day of my surgery, I’ve had a strong craving for sweets, prompting us to develop these 100% natural gummies, jam packed with benefits for our digestive health!

Sea moss, a celebrated superfood, is loaded with essential vitamins, minerals, fiber, proteins, and antioxidants.

🪸Sea Moss Jelly:

* Sea moss
* Water

Instructions 🥣:

* Soak the sea moss overnight.
* The day after, add the moss to a pan, covering it with water (you can use the same water from soaking as long as it completely covers the sea moss).
* Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for about 15-20 minutes until the sea moss has melted almost completely. There may still be a few bits, but no worries.
* Blend the sea moss with the boiled water until smooth.
* Add to an airtight jar; it’ll last in the fridge for up to a week or more.
* Use the gelatin in smoothies, porridge, or soups.

🫐🥝🍊Jellies:

* 1 cup fruit juice
* 2 tbsp agar agar
* 3 tbsp sea moss jelly
* 2 tbsp agave or honey

Instructions 🥣:

* In a pan, add the juice and agar agar, stirring on low heat until dissolved.
* Add the sea moss gelatin and your choice of sweetener, whisking until combined and all lumps have dissolved.
* It should now turn into a thicker consistency.
* Use pipettes to pour the mixture into your molds.
* Let it set for about 20 minutes.
* Store in an airtight jar in the fridge for around a week or more.
