Did you know the benefits of chamomile tea extend beyond the calming effects it provides? Chamomile tea has numerous other healthful properties; it is antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, and contains anti-microbial properties. Its soothing taste and aroma have been traditionally used to reduce stress, anxiety, relieve bloating, and improve sleep quality.

Lavender flowers are well known for their ability to reduce tension. Many common ailments are caused by excessive tension such as headaches, backaches and muscle fatigue. Lavender has other benefits that aren’t as well known: it settles the stomach, kills bacteria, and promotes mental clarity. Even just smelling the aroma of lavender can have a profound effect on both the body and mind.

This latte recipe gets its creaminess from coconut milk and coconut butter, which are great sources of healthy fats and electrolytes. Unsweetened coconut milk is believed to help reduce inflammation and promote healthy blood sugar levels. Coconut milk is a rich, decadent, and highly enjoyable substitute for dairy milk, and it promotes a feeling of contentment and satiety.

In a saucepan, heat the water to boiling, and remove from heat

Add in the lavender flowers (or Lush Lavender) and the chamomile, and allow to steep for 7 minutes
