How Can Rosewater Lemonade Make You Feel Great?
A Remedy for Summer Anger & IrritabilityIf you were going to try one new recipe to keep your cool this summer, try rosewater lemonade. The heat of summer can provoke anger and irritability, especially when a person is dehydrated from sweating, spending long hours under the summer sun or up late at night socializing. Altogether, these strains on your body may make it all too tempting to fight with your loved ones. Fortunately, you can recover your composure and find relief with cooling, sweet beverages like rosewater lemonade.
Cool a Fiery Summer PersonaWhen the thermometer seems relentless, the key to a kinder personality lies in the understanding that summer is a fiery season of aggravated Pitta. When provoked, Pitta generally reacts with irritability, resistance, and aggression. Pitta people have a basic need for sweetness and beauty. When overheated, Pitta needs a gentle "yes" to calm them into a more amiable easiness. They respond best to cooling, calming balms like sitting under the moon, in the shade of a tree, and sweet foods with a pleasant aroma. Rosewater Lemonade brings sweetness and beauty into the day, calming their agitated mind. The mere smell of a rose cools their anger and criticism. Knowing this about Pitta helps you to please and nurture yourself or a loved one, rather than provoke them.
Naturally Tame Your InflammationRosewater relieves and cools inflammation. It's great for spraying on your sunburned skin or summer rashes, but it also heals and soothes internal tissues as well. It has a mild astringency that tones tissues, including the digestive tract.
Lemons & Lemonade: A Classic Cure to HeatLemons cool the skin because they help you sweat. Lemons cleanse the blood of impurities, aid digestion and quench thirst. Although lemons are heating in the digestive tract, they are a cooling astringent in the blood. Sour taste focuses a scattered mind and helps nudge your thoughts from the head back to the heart, the seat of kindness. For an even more Pitta cooling effect, add lime instead of lemon and maple syrup instead of raw sugar. Kapha may prefer honey.
