Relaxing Chamomile Guava MOMosa

Our Guava Chamomile MOMosa is calling every mom to a moment of relaxation with a champagne flute in hand. Think chamomile tea, vitamin C, and your own personal esthetician is a glass. It’s like that vintage “Calgon, take me away” moment, only better. And with vodka! This isn’t your traditional mimosa, it’s healthy… “ish.” Maybe something similar to a taller version of the popular health shots you find next to the fancy juice drinks and kombucha at the local grocery store. Are we stretching a little too far here? Eh…

So what makes this cocktail healthy”ish.” you ask? Well… prepare yourself for a laundry list of the, what we want so desperately to believe, benefits of this relaxing cocktail.

Chamomile is commonly used to reduce stress, aid in reducing inflammation, promote sleep, and help relieve symptoms of menstrual disorders. Guava, a nutritious fruit rich in vitamin C, is an immunity booster that may help to reduce your risk of cancer, reduce menstrual cramping, boost brain function, support eye heath, aid in digestion, reduce stress, and enhance skin health. Collagen is a protein that is known to improve your skin’s hydration and elasticity, as well as aiding in the replenishing of dead skin cells, may prevent bone loss and reduce joint pain, may help in the reduction of anxiety and improve mood, strengthens hair and nails, and is believed by some to promote weight loss and increased metabolism. Arguably a health drink, yes?

There you have it! Moms, you work hard to keep everything running smoothy, often running to and fro, from here to there. Take a moment to unwind with our Relaxing Chamomile Guava MOMosa, your new favorite health shot.
