Matche Latte

A 4pm pick me up – Matcha Latte

Gefu’s new milk frother

I’m a green tea fan (lived and worked in Japan) so when Inner Oasis received its order of Gefu Milk Frothers , I had to try it out with my Matcha Latte Recipe.

 

Ingredients:                                                                                                              1/2 to tsp matcha powder (how strong do you want it?)                       1/4 C hot water                                                                                                       3/4 cup heated almond milk                                                                       honey to taste (I use 1 Tbs).

Preparation:                                                                                                           Heat water to 170 degrees – just under boiling                                     Separately, heat milk to just under boil                                                 Whisk matcha powder with hot water until dissolved                         Stir in honey   (or sugar)                                                                                           Froth the milk and add to matcha mixture                                    Optional: sprinkle a dash of match on top

Change of Seasons

Well, I had started a blog to post about the upcoming eclipse, but I didn’t finish it.

So here we are, riding that eclipse energy of change right up to the change of seasons and the upcoming Autumnal Equinox.  “The equinox occurs on Friday Sept. 22nd at 1:02 pm (West Coast).  The sun will rise and set exactly in the east and west.  It will move in a laser-straight line across the sky. It’s a time of precision and a good time to contemplate the idea of equality.”*

Fall has always been my favorite season.  The changing colors are glorious!  The busy-ness of summer slows down, the very air smells different and turns cool and crisp, the harvest of the gardens, fields and orchards comes to a celebratory finish.

Our energies shift as well.  We begin to turn inwards, we start to think of cozy places indoors and lovely warm foods – soups, stews, baked apples, warm bread.

In the shop we have a versatile Food Mill and a Vegetable Chopper to help with your preserving and cooking.  Some wonderful Gardener’s Salve to refresh your hands after harvesting or cleaning up your yard.  And beautiful stone or salt candle holders to warm your home.

Welcome Autumn!

Centered Lifestyle

Here at Inner Oasis we carry a variety of products.  We have two distinct groups of items: Metaphysical and Kitchenware.

We are often asked why we have two seemingly diverse sections. “Why aren’t you just a New Age Metaphysical store? Why don’t you just sell kitchen and household items?”

The usual answer is that we like to have a little something for a broad range of people.

The other day I was talking to someone I hadn’t seen in awhile and I mentioned that I am now working at a shop on Third Street called Inner Oasis.  She was intrigued by the name and wanted to know what we sell. So I gave the usual answer –  “We sell metaphysical items and kitchenware”.  She said -“So, your store nourishes the body and the spirit.”

I loved her response!  It was so simple, so direct and so Right!  I don’t know why that hadn’t occurred to me, but it didn’t.  That said, it will be my response from now on.

At Inner Oasis we aim for a relaxed, healing environment.  We carry gifts for the soul, items to inspire and tools to help.

The goal of our kitchenware is help make cooking healthier and easier.     In particular, the Lekue Products for the microwave, save more nutrients by using less water and shorter cooking times.  And on these hot summer days, spending less time with the oven and/or stove heating up the kitchen is a great bonus!

Our Salt Lamps, Incense, Stones and Singing Bowls help create a serene and centered atmosphere.

The soaps and lotions from R&J Riverbrooke Farm are gifts for the senses.

We also carry jewelry and other items to enable you to enhance your energy and lift your spirit wherever you go.

Have a Joyful Day.
