A Welcome Back! Plus - Make a soothing Rose Latte
Firstly, welcome to Light Of Solstice! Some of you will remember that over the past couple of months, my previous blog posts and site, One Seeing Ghost, was paused while I created this site, and really thought about my direction. I'd like to thank you all for your patience while I built the site (I'm not what you would describe as tech savvy) and I hope your excited as I am about how it has already grown! Light Of Solstice is flourishing in my heart far faster than in reality..but it will catch up! It has been a challenge to juggling everything, more so as we have been in lockdown due to the Covid-19 outbreak and I have a 10 month old daughter to care for.
As I have a few avenues on here, as a spiritual artist (what really makes my heart sing is creating) and providing holistic health advice (recently got my certificate as a qualified Holistic Health Practitioner, another light in my heart is wellness, and being able to help people) blog posts might not be as regular as before, but I'll still be posting so be sure to keep checking back so you don't miss out on anything!
Excitingly, I'm also studying Intuitive healing, which I look forward to offer along side my artwork and holistic advice to be able to be more 'hands on' with healing people on their wellness and spiritual journey. I have so many ambitions with Light Of Solstice, that we all share our spiritual, creative and wellness journeys together - the only problem is there isn't enough hours in the day!

On to the recipe!
Rose Latte (serves 1)
Rose is a wonderful flower with a delicate scent, and also makes a delicate floral tea. It's caffeine free, can help reduce stress and anxiety, and can help boost immunity due to it's vitamin c content.
It makes the perfect drink for evening, to help unwind after a long day, and also the perfect drink as part of a self love ritual - teamed with rose quartz crystals and a meditation.
100ml - 150ml boiling water
1 - 2 tbsp dried culinary rose petals
3 - 4 frozen cherries (optional, to add a lovely pink colour and a little more taste)
200ml milk of choice (I used coconut milk)
Boil the kettle, and place rose petals into a tea strainer in a mug/jug. Pour water, and allow the petals to steep for a few minutes.
While the petals are steeping, pour milk into a pan with frozen cherries (if using) and gently heat on the hob (though not to boil).
Pour rose water into a mug. Take the pan off the heat and remove cherries. Use a milk froth whisk if desired, and pour milk into jug.
Garnish with rose petals, and enjoy!
