How to make a turmeric latte and reap the healthy benefits - by Safiya Motala
Turmeric is a pretty special spice. It has a lot of great health benefits. You may have already heard of turmeric lattes, or golden milk. There are plenty of reasons to incorporate turmeric into your daily routine, but for some of us, this can be tricky. Golden milk or teas made with turmeric have been consumed in Ayurveda. Science has since found many links between regular turmeric consumption and healthy results.
The most active compound in turmeric is curcumin. It is good for digestion, good for skin and hair, boosts immunity, balances hormone levels and is anti-inflammatory, which means consuming turmeric can help reduce muscle pain, and reduce chronic disease due to chronic inflammation. In fact, the efficacy of turmeric as an anti-inflammatory has been matched to the efficacy of some anti-inflammatory drugs.
Make sure to take turmeric along with black pepper, which will help your body to absorb the healing benefits of curcumin.
A warm turmeric latte is excellent any time of day, and a great choice if you are feeling under the weather. Especially if you have a sore throat (anti-inflammatory turmeric to the rescue).
4 self-care routines using tea - by Safiya Motala

When we ask people if they think tea fits into their ideas of self-care, we often get comments about tea and books. A cup of tea, a good book and a cozy spot. Sounds pretty perfect, doesn’t it? The ritual of tea itself can be a type of self-care routine. A few minutes each day that are just for ourselves, doing something we know we will enjoy.
We have a few other suggestions on how tea can be a part of a daily self-care routine.
Bath bombs are great and lots of fun, but some of them can be full of ingredients that you may not want to soak your body in. Check out some of our favourite bath soaks.
For all of these soaks, we suggest using a reusable muslin cloth bag, cheesecloth, or a #4 t-sac....
