I was honored to participate in a beauty + wellness day the other week at abc home. It’s truly a special place – the moment you walk in you breath in all of its beauty. Someone pointed out that these space like these don’t take your breathe away, but rather give you breath. You literally want to breathe it all in. The day was filled with a sentiment of beauty from the inside out and I had the pleasure of interviewing abcV’s beverage director Jeremy Mustakas. abcV is beyond delicious and inspiring, right down to every detail on its juice, smoothie, biodynamic wine, creative cocktail and tonic-filled beverage menu.
Some of my favorite ingredients on abcV’s menu are some that are in my very own kitchen – adaptogens like rhodiola, ashwaganda, elderberry, and sea buckthorn. I love sea buckthorn (or sea berry) – it’s is a tiny fruit that grows high up in the Himalayas and is the world’s richest source of Omega-7. Omega-7 is a beauty essential, boosting collagen production for healthy skin, hair and nails. Sea buckthorn is also an incredible source of Omegas 3, 6, and 9, which also supports digestion and promotes heart health. I love Sibu Beauty’s pure sea buckthorn puree, filled with over 190 bioactive compounds.
Drinking a few splashes of sea berry puree a day is a great way to get your omegas in. I love adding it to my afternoon tonic, or even evening cocktail. At night, I like to unwind a few days a week and also use the puree in an ultra calming, soothing facemask. Read on for the recipes, and if you like grab some sea berry for yourself.
