BRAND FEATURE: Aurora Elixirs


A lightly sweetened, balanced, and refreshing sparkling beverage, Aurora Elixirs are the interpretation of traditional aperitifs that are intended to open the palate without overwhelming it. Blended to invoke bitter, citrus, and botanical flavors with the herbal, earthy aromatics of whole plant hemp extracts.


Each of our three unique flavors contains 15mg of CBD per serving and highlights the restorative properties of terpenes found in our chosen botanicals.


I absolutely love these beverages. I love the design and feel of the brand and all three of these flavors are so delicious, I don't know how to choose which one is my favorite!


Inspired by the entrepreneurial spirit and emerging recreational cannabis industries in Oregon, Founder and CEO Victoria Pustynsky’s vision was to apply refined sensibilities and savvy to elevate the quality, consistency, and sophistication of the infused products market. Following a career in luxury wine & spirits, Victoria designed Aurora Elixirs for an inspired ‘aperitif’ experience that evokes balance and restoration without intoxication.

The flavors of our elixirs are built to evoke the aromatics of the best expressions of cannabis - citrus, floral, piney, and woodsy, Aurora’s inspirations are the Northern Lights & the Goddess of the Dawn, introducing the benefits of cannabinoids to new consumers and enthusiasts in a thoughtful and inspired concoction. Our mission is to bring a unique and beautiful product into the hands of those seeking to redefine a traditional cocktail occasion. More than a fad, but an enduring and authentic new expression of refreshment. Learn more about this brand here.

ABOUT THE MINDFUL INGREDIENTS:


DANDELION | You may be most familiar with dandelion as a stubborn weed that never seems to leave your lawn or garden. However in traditional herbal medicine practices, dandelion are revered for their wide array of medicinal properties. It's a rich source of many vitamins, minerals and fiber, along with strong antioxidant capabilities. Learn more about dandelion benefits here. I got our Dandelion tincture from Mountain Rose Herbs.


ROSE WATER | Rose Water has been used for thousands of years, starting in the Middle East, where they blended roses and H2O for beauty, food and drinks. Roses have long been revered for their anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant properties, while water has been proven over and over again to improve metabolism and flush toxins from the body.

  1. Drink rose water to hydrate the skin from the inside. Well-hydrated skin looks and feels plump and healthy.

CBD* stands for cannabidiol, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. While CBD is a component of marijuana (one of hundreds), by itself it does not cause a “high.” Click here to learn 7 benefits and uses of CBD.

TÖST: a delightfully fizzy, alcohol-free way to celebrate with this Non-Alcoholic champagne. Any alternative that allows us to say no to alcohol, is a mindful ingredient to us! TÖST is healthier than Champagne, sparkling wines or fruity juices. Naturally sweetened and with low sugar and carbohydrate content, TÖST is only 45 calories per 8-oz. serving, so you can indulge without guilt. Now, THAT'S something to celebrate!

BRAND FEATURE: Floral Elixir Co.

Drink Your Flowers started from an idea to create cocktails and sodas with flowers in late 2008, after Founder Nora Egger's return to the US after working in Europe for a decade. Originally from Austria, Nora has spent her life living between Europe and the US, and while working in Europe she traveled extensively and became fascinated in the role flowers and botanicals played in drink and food cultures.


They have always called our flower syrups ‘Elixirs’ as they’re more potent than regular pure cane sugar syrups, made from real flowers and botanicals, and have a delicate sweet/citrus balance which lends for perfect cocktail and soda enjoyment.


When I tell you they have SO many different flavors, they really do. These are a new great alternative to me making my own simple syrups-- they are already created and from real flowers and botanicals. Learn more about this brand here.

BRAND FEATURE: Buddha Beans Coffee Co

Located in Los Angeles, California and established in 2018, Buddha Beans Coffee is micro-roasted using the highest quality, fair trade coffee beans, ensuring consistency and superior flavor in every roast. They also launched the WORLD's FIRST CBG infused Coffee bean!-- Learn what this means here.


Their first roast came out of a hot air popcorn maker. What started as a hobby, soon led to a marriage of their greatest passions, coffee & cannabis. To differentiate themselves from a crowded coffee industry, they began to research a proprietary CBD infusion process unlike any other on the market.

They roast and infuse all of their coffee in-house, but they directly source coffee from a woman ran columbian Coffee Farm. This allows for complete control over raw material input and roast profile. The final product is third party lab tested to ensure quality in every roast.


First off I LOVE their branding, it makes me so happy-- but I love their story and let me tell you-- this is the only coffee I want to drink. It tastes SO GOOD. Not to mention, regular coffee has been affecting my anxiety badly, switching to this CBD coffee allows me to still have my obsession without overwhelming my anxiety. While I have only tried the Mexico blend, I am sure the others are just as delicious. They have a wide array of offerings, including whole bean, ground coffee, single serve pour overs and a coffee scrub! Plus be on the look out they are launching TWO water soluble elixirs. One will be released mid September, called their CBG Wellness Elixir. Stay tuned for our review of this! For anyone who doesn't mess with hemp, they are launching a non-infused coffee line early Fall 2020. Needless to say I am OBSESSED with Buddha Beans and Can't wait to try all their new products!
