pure. instant. delicious. chai.

Greetings Ecotopiians! Today I am writing to share my favorite chai recipe made with Blue Lotus Chai, an organic instant chai mix we sell at Ecotopiia. Blue Lotus Chai’s Traditional Masala Chai is a purely brewed black tea~naturally flash dried into a powder and blended with six organic spices combining to make a perfectly spicy & full-bodied chai. This recipe is convenient because there is no steeping or straining necessary! (the water-soluble mixture blends into hot or cold liquid) ‘Masala Chai’ is a tradition inherited from India~ the blending of spices with tea and hot milk. I love this chai mix because you can easily enjoy one scoop (equivalent to 1/4 tsp) in 1 (8 oz) cup of hot water adding your sweetener or milk of choice ~ or you can choose to spice things up 😉 I have been experimenting in the kitchen to perfect my daily chai ritual. Here is my favorite recipe.

Ingredients: Blue Lotus Chai Traditional Masala Chai, Organic Vanilla, Cinnamon, Almond/Coconut Milk, Raw Honey, Black Tea

Steps. For an even fuller bodied tea, I like to brew organic black tea to start. After shortly steeping, I stir in one scoop of Blue Lotus Chai. Then, I add a Tbsp of honey and stir until dissolved. I follow with a heaping sprinkling of cinnamon and a drop or two of vanilla before adding my almond milk to taste. This blend is the perfect combination of spicy~sweet~body and has quickly become a daily ritual of mine.

Details. One 3 oz Blue Lotus Chai tin comes with equipped with an adorable wooden spoon to perfectly measure your chai. Each tin makes 100 cups of chai! Blue Lotus Chai is vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, and made using organic spices. Don’t think this Chai is just for tea~ Blue Lotus Chai mix is the perfect complement to your baked goods. Add them to your favorite muffins or pumpkin creations for an earthy~spicy upgrade.

Blue Lotus Chai has been a fun way for me to enjoy a daily homemade hot beverage without overspending at cafes for a less-healthy alternative. Let me know your favorite recipes! I would love to hear from you in the comments below.

Beauty Blog by Becca ~ Simply Divine Botanicals

3270f18d305b6be777538720bcd85654Greetings Ecotopiia Beauty Lovers! I am thrilled to share with you my experience with Simply Divine Botanicals Skincare, a revolutionary product line merging science with reiki energy & love. If you have struggled with self-image and skin issues, prepare for your frustration and discouragement to be alchemized . . .

You will notice the first two ingredients in all Simply Divine Botanicals products are unconditional love & gratitude. Founder and master herbalist Barbara Rogers uses essential oils including Frankincense and Myrrh to activate the body’s acupuncture meridians creating systemic healing without the use of synthetic additives, toxins or chemicals. Barbara infuses reiki energy into her products to raise the energy and vibration of all those who use her collection.

The first product I tested is the Black Velvet Fabulous Foaming Facial Cleanser.Screen Shot 2016-08-23 at 12.04.49 PM

This cleanser benefits all skin types from dry to oily. It is intended for use twice daily to remove makeup, heal & prevent blemishes, clear excess oil, minimize the appearance of pores and leave the skin feeling soft like velvet. This cleanser is a refreshing change from traditional face washes geared to target oily skin which tend to strip the skin of its natural oils–disrupting the skin’s normal pH balance.

When I lathered Black Velvet onto my skin I was immediately pleased with the foaming effect. The cleanser lathers into the skin like traditional soap without the use of harsh sulfates, giving an ultra-clean feeling. I was pleasantly surprised by the delicious mix of essential oils and botanicals that combine to provide a grounding and calming scent. After using this product for 2 weeks, my skin feels clean, nourished and moisturized throughout the duration of the day. It feels soft to the touch and naturally more vibrant and radiant.

What is my synopsis?
Black Velvet is the perfect mix of practicality and divine energy. I have not found another cleanser that makes my skin look or feel more loved. Stay tuned for my next product review. Stop by Ecotopiia or checkout Ecotopiia.com to choose the best Simply Divine goodies for your skin and test out our favorites today!
