Spices for Love, Love your Spices!

Did you know cardamom, ginger, nutmeg & saffron are known for the aphrodisiac  properties in them? They also have a variety of other health benefits too (digestive aids, antioxidant properties,  cardiovasular protection to name a few). Saffron and cardamom are the most expensive spices - but you only need a little bit for the huge price of love!

The saying "a way to a man's heart is through his stomach" may hold true for some of us over Valentines. Roses, chocolates, strawberries, champagne are all popular gift choices too.

If you're like me and think Valentine's Day romance can be a little contrived, here are some alternative reasons for your heart to celebrate the day.

Roses, rose water, rose essence are uplifting for the heart.
Chocolate is actually scientifically proven to be good for the heart and mood!
Strawberries are one of the superfoods rich in antioxidant and cardiovascular protective properties.
Champagne, believe it or not, is also claimed to be good for the heart and in preventing strokes according to studies in the UK.

What's even better is that all of these ingredients pair really well  with my favourite spice of all, cardamom! Needless to say, I needed no more motive to get my creative hat on and create an all in one V-day recipe: Jelly Amore! A great dessert incorporating roses, strawberries, sparkling wine/cava/champagne, chocolate & cardamom. Indulgent yet light and still healthy!

Our limited edition Spices for Love Gift Set comes with all of the following:
