How to Cold Brew Your Own Sparkling Beauty Water Infused With Citrus and Flower Petals
In the latest episode of Plant Based, herbalist, health coach, and Supernatural founder Rachelle Robinett shares her recipe for sparkling beauty water, made with some key floral ingredients. "[They're] brightening, soothing, and some are mood boosting," she says of the blend.
So what exactly in it? Here's a breakdown: Citrus peels, rose petals, calendula ( vibrant orange flower that serves as a balm for the skin), chamomile, lavender, hibiscus, and sparkling water. Robinett explains that the citrus peels and flowers are high in polyphenols (which protect the body from harmful agents like ultraviolet rays and radiation) and terpenes (which may help lower anxiety). She also says the blend is high in antioxidants, which help reduce inflammation.
Because the flower petals can be pretty bitter, Robinett cold brews the blend, which reduces the harshness, giving the beauty water a slightly sweet taste instead. And the sparkling water makes it super refreshing. Ready to see how to do it? Watch Robinett whip it up:
