Green tea has many health benefits, it's even great for our skin! This prompted me to create our Matcha Smoothie Soap, there's a face mask in the works as well! So sticking with the theme I figured I would share my favorite way to drink matcha.
Simple Matcha Smoothie
1/2 a banana chopped into 4-6 pieces
1-2 tsp matcha powder (to your taste)
1-2 tbls honey
3/4 C ice cubes
1 C vanilla almond milk (or milk or juice of preference)
handful of fresh or frozen blueberries (optional)
Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a tall glass and enjoy. This is the perfect drink for an at home spa day. Make this smoothie, put on a mud mask and draw a warm bath... relax and enjoy. Wishing you blissful showers and baths! -Cassie
On my list of favorite foods (right next to dark chocolate and strong coffee) is raw honey. If you get the chance to pick up local raw honey, I promise you wont be disappointed (except for when you run out and buy the "honey" at the grocery store). Lot's of people have been buzzing (pun intended) about the benefits of consuming local raw honey, but what about skin benefits?
Honey is a natural humectant, which means it draws in moisture and locks it in place. This makes it a great addition to skin and hair care. Not only does it moisturize (and smell great), honey is an antioxidant, which benefits skin as well. If you still aren't convinced look into it sometime, you might be surprised by all that honey has to offer.
As for Pure Bliss Body Confections and honey... we are working on an entire line made with raw wildflower honey. We've got some beautiful CoconOats & Honey soap on the curing rack as well as a shampoo & conditioner in the works. These are all made with Maine Raw Wildflower Honey, colloidal oatmeal and coconut milk for extra skin and hair loving goodness. These are just the start of our honey products so be on the lookout for more.
Wishing you blissful showers and baths, -Cassie
