How Can Rustic Peach Sorbet with Rosemary Oil Make You Feel Great?
Soothing Balm for Hay-FeverA cold peach sorbet offers soothing relief to the back of your throat when it is hot & irritated. As ragweed starts to irritate your throat during the late summer allergy season, one of the best ways to reduce your sensitivity to fall pollen is, surprisingly, good bowel health & regular elimination. Stools harden in August as temperatures drop. You might notice more gas and bloating than during other months of the year.
Fall gas & bloating is the root of your allergic sensitivity. Gas and bloating is a sign of fermentation by bacteria, which release toxins in your blood that irritate mucus membranes, and overstimulate your immune system. This irritation and hypersensitivty of your immune system, combined with pollen in the air, is a perfect storm in the sinuses. Cold sorbet is a salve for your throat when inflamed. Peaches are so easy to digest that they are often pureed and given to babies.
As the sourness in a peach makes the mouth juicy, it also makes the digestive tract juicy, encouraging smoother, softer stools and easy elimination. The high fiber content of peaches, plus the added slick lubrication offered by olive oil further encourage easy bowel movement.
Enliven Your Heavy MindPungent and slightly bitter, rosemary is a choice herb for ailments of kapha dosha. Rosemary is traditionally used to improve memory by stimulating the central nervous system. Rosemary invigorates blood and lymph circulation, useful in low blood pressure, sluggishness and helping fatigued muscles feel light once again. Pick rosemary fresh from the garden (or roadside!) and steep in a mason jar of olive oil. A beam of summer sunshine will gently coax the spicey aroma from rosemary into the oil for a delicately pungent yet rich flavor. Rosmarinus, deriving from the latin "dew" (ros) and "sea" (marinus), means "dew of the sea". Rosemary grows in the arid Mediterranean pastures of Greece and Italy and, as its name implies, it can survive on the humidity carried to its leaves by the sea breeze. A drizzle of rosemary infused olive oil is the final touch on this Italian inspired recipe.
