A LOVE AFFAIR WITH ROSE
Rose is in the spotlight right now. We have been seeing so much loveliness on social media featuring one of our favorite flowers. Until more recently, rose was considered predominately a fragrance, not so often a culinary experience. We love rose in both smell, look and taste. Today we're sharing our top 4 rose experiences.
ANTIDOTE. Hands down our current favorite chocolate. The Rose + Lemon Heirloom chocolate is half raw and half roasted. It gives you a steady sustained energy as well as gracing your tastebuds with its divine feminine flavor.
KEJIWA. We're obsessed with Kejiwa. First off, the product line itself is amazing, secondly the creators are incredible people that we love. They also happen to be Sedona locals! Kejiwa makes to amazing rose products, the Ormus minerals and the Venus Love rose spray, both of which we love dearly.
