IN CONVERSATION: LAUREN ASH
This month we are highlighting women in wellness who inspire us and bring so much knowledge, joy and intention into the world of well-being. Every week this month we will be sharing an interview with one of them, learning more about their work, projects, recipes and visions for the future! This week we are so excited to be hosting an interview with the founder and CEO of Black Girl In Om, Lauren Ash! Black Girl In Om is helping create a world where women of color are liberated, empowered and seen through creating a space for black women to breathe easy. They are “supporting the necessary transformation, spiritual awakening, consciousness shifts, and intergenerational healing occurring within the diaspora.” We are so grateful to Lauren Ash for her contributions to the intersectional wellness community!

ADAPTOGENIC PUMPKIN SPICE CHAI
We gave into the pumpkin spice craze many moons ago and decided to share one of our favorite, signature Autumn potions: a deliciously warming ADAPTOGENIC PUMPKIN-SPICED CHAI. We've included Ashwagandha, Reishi mushroom and Tocos in this recipe which are our go-to's for supporting our nervous system, immunity and longevity, plus a scoop of Tocos always makes a potion extra creamy! We hope you 'in joy' this recipe and stay well... with love from the Sun Potion team!

IN CONVERSATION: MIA CAINE
"Our individual well-being is connected to & directly impacted by the wellbeing of the Earth. If taking care of your health is important to you, caring for the environment should be a significant part of that equation. Why? Because we can only be as healthy as the environment that we live in and the health of the Earth depends on how we care for it. It’s a feedback loop." - Mia Caine We recently had the pleasure of interviewing Mia Caine, brand strategist, entrepreneur & the wellness blogger behind @the_healthlete. Read our conversation to learn more about Mia and her journey so far, plus read more on her new sustainable jewelry line + try a delicious turmeric juice recipe to start your morning balanced & energized.
BIODYNAMIC + ADAPTOGENIC SANGRIA BLANCO
The perfect summer recipe, Sangria is a great way to bring your favorite flavors of the season into the mix. Just slice your fruits and throw them into a vessel with your favorite wine and adaptogens, and you have a special treat that we think goes best when shared with others (while socially distancing) on a sunny afternoon. Grab your favorite farmers market fruits or ones straight from the garden (or ask your friends to bring over their favorites) and mix them together for a rewarding and potent alchemical treat! ~ Read on to get the recipe for our favorite Sun Potion Sangria ~
