This scattering of asterisks not only intoxicated us with a cosmic aroma but incited musings of a new discovery…Bouchai, a combination of kombucha and chai. A little effervescent and a little spicy over a full glass of shaved ice by the poolside is certainly my kind of cosmos. To reach maximum potential with this photograph unseal a jar of star anise and breathe in the enticing warm, fruity, hoppy and spice fragrance. I plan to get my summer glow on with these starlets which contain compounds such as linalool, vitamin C, anethole and shikimic acid, the active ingredient in flu medications like Tamiflu. Here’s to wishing you a whole lot of love and glow. Stay tuned for benefits of pine.
