1. Rosemary and Mint Tropical Virgin Spritzer

Uplift your mind and treat your tastebuds to a refreshing beverage you can have anytime! With invigorating hints of Navel oranges, fresh ginger, and you guessed it, rosemary and mint. This vegan and gluten-free mocktail can easily transform into a delicious cocktail with the simple addition of some chilled white wine. The star of the show here is the simple syrup… Here’s what you’ll need:

Simple Syrup 

  • 1 cup of water

  • 1 cup of sweetener (your choice, but we love to use local honey)

  • 2 sprigs of rosemary

  • 15 mint leaves

  • 1 medium Navel orange, juiced

  • 2 inch ginger, grated

Add the ingredients listed above to a saucepan on a medium low flame and stir. Bring to a boil and set it aside to cool. Once it has cooled down, store your simple syrup in an airtight glass container and make sure you don’t strain it so that all of the flavors can infuse. This can stay in the fridge for up to a week.

Now it’s time to assemble the drink!

  1. Add crushed ice to your glasses.

  2. Strain the simple syrup and fill the glasses ¼ of the way.

  3. Add tropical club soda. (You can also substitute juice or plain club soda.)

  4. Add freshly sliced oranges and strawberries. 

  5. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary and mint.

Voilà and Salud to the refreshing mocktail of your spring dreams!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 cup of coconut oil

  • ½ tsp of peppermint essential oil

  • ½ tsp of rosemary essential oil

  • an 8oz jar

How it’s made:

  1. Heat the coconut oil until it melts.

  2. Remove oil from heat and stir in essential oils.

  4. Stir again for about 6 minutes, making sure you scrape the sides so everything is thoroughly mixed.

  5. Transfer to a jar, once it’s whipped evenly. (Coconut oil will re-solidify when cold, but warms and melts to the touch.)

Apply the rub to your chest and breathe deeply.

3. Rosemary and Mint Bath Salts

There really is no better way to end the day than with a warm, relaxing bath. Plus, according to Matthew Walker, Neuroscientist at UC Berkeley (interviewed recently on NPR), baths before bed actually trigger your body to go into a “cool down” mode, which helps you fall asleep faster and sleep more soundly. Here’s how you can step up your bath game with our favorite pals, rosemary and mint!

What you’ll need:

  • 2 cups of Epsom salt

  • 1/2 cup of baking soda

  • 10 drops of rosemary essential oil (or 1 tbsp dried rosemary)

  • 10 drops of mint essential oil

How it’s made:

  1. Mix the dry ingredients together.

  2. Blend in the essential oils.

  3. Store in an airtight container and allow the ingredients to infuse together for one day.

Simply add a handful into your warm bath and soak in all of the benefits!
