Chocolate Fudge with Roses and Raspberries
Every day I delve deeper in the realm of the flower kingdom. Inspired by wise women like Rosemary Gladstar, Juiette of Bairacli Levy and Susan S. Weed.
The one flower that I have been taking daily before I started to study Herbalism is the Rose; I use it to infuse water that i make warm tonics with, nut milks and a lot of desserts. When I infuse the petals in water I place my face over the pan so I can catch the steam to help waken my cells. So it came to no surprise when I learned that this fragrant flower has its persuasive way with skin, rose seems to nourish, balance, reform, de-scar, and rejuvenate most skin types.
I was so happy to learn that all the cooking and infusing that I have been doing with Roses had proven benefits that I intuitively had associated with this delicate flower. So if you haven’t worked with roses internally or topically I urge you to do so, as she’s not only associated with love and romance but also for her ways with cell regeneration and is especially helpful for damaged or mature and aging skin. Rose also lifts the spirits and is used for depression and grief.
So imagine for a second that you can eat chocolate and reap the benefits of soft rejuvenated skin at the same time that your mood is elevated and your heart is open. If a smile popped into your head and heart at the thought of this, you should try this recipe:
