Pistachio Rose Milk (Mylk) + My Favorite Rosy Beauty Products

pistachio-rose-mylk-10

Roses are having a moment right now.  I am not sure that they ever actually went out of style, but lately I am seeing the blooms in everything from foodstuffs to beauty products – and I couldn’t be happier about it.  I love a petal-packed DIY, infusing the floral flavor into lemonade, and adding the fragrant water to spicy margaritas.

This post is a twofer, starting with my latest concoction, and ending with a few of the rosy items that have been on heavy rotation in my skincare routine.

I realize that the milk (or “mylk” if we’re being trendy about it) recipe requires a couple of splurge/maybe not in your pantry ingredients like raw pistachios and rose tea.  I promise you though that if you do try this, you’ll want to make sure that you have both on hand at all times going forward.

And if you want to leave the rose part out, in the very least, make some pistachio milk (Just use filtered water in place of the tea in the recipe below.).  The pistachios are naturally so sweet and creamy when blended that I like the end result even better than homemade almond milk.

I am going to leave it at that as this post is pretty long to begin with, and because I have a few things to tend to over here on the back end.  Thank You so much to those of you who contacted me last week when the blog went down (It was looking all sorts of crazy for a few hours there!).  I think we have most of the major problems fixed, but if you notice anything else or are looking for something specific, please reach out!  In the meantime, I am going to work on the site redesign I have been talking about for approximately the past 400 days, and wish you a very happy weekend!  : )

Author:
Recipe type: Clean Eats, Sips
Ingredients
  • 1 cup raw pistachios
  • Filtered water
  • 4 cups chilled rose tea
  • 1 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey

  2. Drain the pistachios.
  3. Place the pistachios in a blender with the tea. Blend until completely smooth. Pass the mixture through a fine mesh sieve or a nut milk bag and discard any remaining solids (Or save them to create a homemade pistachio butter!).

Notes
To make your own rose tea, combine ¼ cup dried rosebuds with 4 cups hot water.

I am a sucker for any beauty product that lists “rose” as an ingredient, but these are four that I am especially loving right now.  I also made a shop-able collage in case you love these things as much as I do.  It includes a few all-time favorites (Especially the Korres Sleeping Facial; I talk more about it here.), and some new items that I am excited to try!

Heritage Store Rosewater & Glycerin:  I am constantly spritzing myself; all day every day.  If you were to look in my bag or my medicine cabinet, on my desk or my coffee table, you would find an atomizer with some sort of potion in it.  I really like this spray in particular because not only is it hydrating, but it is super inexpensive too!

Shiva Rose, Rose Face Oil:  This oil is the opposite of inexpensive.  It is definitely qualifies as an indulgent purchase, but in my opinion, a well worth it one.  It smells beautiful, a little bit goes a long way, and the fact that it was “formulated in a high vibrational environment with love and blessings” makes it pretty awesome.  I am not kidding when I tell you that I feel like a goddess every time I use this.  The Local Rose is one of my favorite resources for healthy living, and Shiva has a beautiful and insightful Instagram page as well.

Remy & Rose Rose Salve:  I first discovered this salve via HEYDAY…a gorgeous store that I found while scrolling on Instagram (again)…  I have used similar salves before, and I have to say that this one has the best non-greasy consistency, and the most natural smell.  I put it under my eyes and on my hands before bed and use it as a lip shine in a pinch.  It also soothes any number of ailments; there is nothing that a good salve can’t do!

French Girl Organics Rose Lip Polish:  Because dry, chapped lips are the worst.  This polish tastes good (In case you accidentally end up eating it, like I always do!), and is made from all-natural, locally sourced ingredients.  It’s a Winter (or any season, really) must-have!
