The moon milk, as well as the famous golden milk or turmeric milk, is a recipe of the Ayurvedic tradition that in the last year has also become famous among us. It is a special milk based on adaptogenic spices and herbs that reduces stress and naturally promotes sleep.
Taken before bed is a great way to relax and ensure a good night’s sleep, and over time it’s a great way to significantly reduce stress.
The taste is not very pleasant, which is why moon milk is usually personalized by choosing a base of normal or vegetable milk, to which you add a teaspoon of raw honey.
