    Turmeric… the golden spice

    Turmeric… the golden spice

    Curcuma longa, more commonly known as Turmeric, has a long history of medicinal use, dating back thousands of years. In Southeast Asia, Turmeric is not only used as a spice but also as flavouring, dye and a component in religious ceremonies. Because of its amazing yellow colour, Turmeric is also known as “Indian saffron.” Although Ayurvedic medicine has long been using Turmeric, modern medicine has only recently begun to recognize its many unique health benefits, and to fully appreciate the extent of its healing potential.

    Healthy and Happy Skin

    A WORD FROM EMMA ON HEALTHY + HAPPY SKIN

    The skin is the largest organ of the body and takes on the huge role of filtering toxins and protecting your insides from the environment every day. Many people invest large amounts of money and time in trying to find the perfect topical fix, to correct blemishes, moisturise the skin, dry out oily skin, reduce redness, reduce breakouts and perfect their overall appearance. A great deal of time goes into morning regimes and then more effort at night to cleanse and remove the make up from the day.

    Going Caffeine Free

    GOING CAFFEINE FREE

    Coffee and tea are two of the world’s beverages of choice, and while many people understand that coffee contains caffeine and it is consumed for its stimulatory effects, it’s important to note that tea also contains caffeine.

    The caffeine component found in the camellia sinensis plant contains varying degrees of caffeine, depending on how and when the plant is harvested and processed. Dependent on the growing techniques and treatments that the tea leaves undergo, they are then classified as white tea, green tea, yellow tea, oolong tea, black tea or matcha tea, all of which are caffeinated but to varying levels.

    VANILLA – A WORLD WIDE SHORTAGE

    Not only is it the second most expensive spice in the world, it is one of the most labour intensive foods on earth.

    After the flowers are pollinated by hand and the seed pods are harvested, each pod is soaked in hot water, wrapped in a woollen blanket for about 48 hours, placed in a box to sweat and are later laid out to dry in the sun. The whole process takes months to complete.

    Hot tea not your thing? Try this recipe

    HOT TEA NOT YOUR THING? TRY THIS RECIPE…

    In many countries around the world, conventional wisdom says that a hot drink can cool you down on a hot day, so being the tea lovers that we are, we endeavoured to find out if this was fact true, or simply an old wives tale.

    As it turns out, a researcher at The University of Ottawa’s School of Human Kinetics decided this was a question worth pursuing, and a study was subsequently published in 2012 on body heat storage and hot fluid ingestion. The short answer is, yes, a hot drink can cool you down, however this is mostly due to the increase in perspiration, and subsequent evaporation from the skin, which has a cooling effect.
