a beauty boosting afternoon pick me up

This month, I’ve been reflecting on self love and care. So often in the month of February, especially with Valentine’s Day, our efforts of loving are directed towards other people in our life. This is one of the best parts of the month to me, that we get to celebrate the people around us. But, the more capacity we carry to love ourselves, the more in-depth we’re able to love the people around us. I love finding ways to “treat myself”. To take the time to celebrate me, to be mindful of slowing down and enjoying time with just me, myself, and I. This little lavender almond latte is one of my favorite ways to treat myself- and it’s the perfect afternoon pick-me-up. 

Lavender is known to have calming effects, can aid with digestion, and is all around a great addition to your afternoon.

Lavender + Almond Latte
1-2 drops lavender oil
1 -2 shots espresso
1 cup almond milk
1 tsp honey
Edible dried lavender for sprinkling {optional}

In a large mug, mix your honey and oil, then stir in your espresso.
Warm your almond milk… I love using this frother by Nespresso, because it heats and froths my milk with just the touch of a button.
Top your espresso mixture with your steamed milk!
