This elixir is based on Ayurveda principles of nourishing your nerves. Your nerves are coated in a layer of fat, called the myelin sheath, which insulates, protects and guides the electric impulses of your neurons. All the ingredients in this recipe have been chosen for their specific enriching qualities. Almonds, with their beauty fat, vitamins and minerals, feed this protective fatty barrier, which helps you handle stress without allowing it to accumulate and overstimulate you. Cardamom is related to ginger and has warming, digestive-enhancing properties. It is also a diuretic, and so it helps flush toxins out of your kidneys. Saffron improves circulation and purifies the blood. This is a great recipe to sip in the evening, as you start to wind down, to help encourage peaceful beauty rest.

Ingredients
1½ cups unsweetened almond milk
2 teaspoons honey (preferably raw) or coconut nectar
½ teaspoon ground cardamom
⅓ teaspoon saffron

Directions:
Heat the almond milk in a small saucepan over medium heat to just under a boil. Stir in the honey, cardamom and saffron and enjoy at once.
