Say hello to this delicate soothing latte infused with the eternal symbol of true love and beauty: rose water.

Widely used in Ayurveda to calm and tame inflammation within the body and mind, roses are soothing antidotes to the physical stresses of everyday living. Due to its cleansing properties, rose water and its petals support the liver in its neverending quest to facilitate detoxification and serve as a gentle diuretic, promoting healthy and regular elimination. It also acts as a blood purifier, helping to remove and neutralize toxins.

Much like rose quartz, this latte helps one to purify and opens the heart chakra, bringing about calming and peaceful frequencies.
