About the Iced Rose & Cardamom Latte Recipe
We're all about versatility, so after we infused rose petals with coconut oil to make our Rose & Eucalyptus Lip Balm, we started experimenting with other ways we could use the leftover infused oil. Coffee is one of those things we drink almost every day, so we're always looking for new ways to spice it up and add a little variety, and stumbled on this inspiring recipe by Local Milk Blog to make the delicious concoction you see here.
Cardamom is a plant whose seeds have been used for thousands of years as both a spice and medicine.
When it comes to nutrition, cardamom is great for:
Digestion: cardamom has been shown to help with constipation, flatulence, cramps, diarrhea, vomiting
Immunity: as an antioxidant, cardamom supports health and helps prevent disease
And rose is wonderful for:
Vitamin C: an antioxidant that supports your immune system as well as healthy skin and hair
Menstrual cramps: rose tea has been used for centuries to relieve cramping and psychological stress during menstruation
