This is a raw image I took yesterday. The sun had set, rain was pouring down, and I could see lightning in the distance. Absolutely humbling to see how powerful and angry the ocean can be. 

Summer Goddess Sun Tea with Chamomile Syrup 
Summer Goddess Sun Tea

Equal parts dried rose and hibiscus flowers, blended1-3 teaspoons of flowers per 8 oz of water

Brew sun tea by leaving a jar of water and flower petals in a sunny window for an hour or two. The hibiscus imparts its flavor quickly, so the tea doesn’t take long to brew. A caveat: there’s some risk of bacteria growth when making sun tea. If you think you’ll leave your tea out for more than a couple of hours, consider brewing it overnight in the refrigerator instead, or making it the old-fashioned way with boiling water. If you use boiling water, pour it over dried flowers, cover, and let sit for 10 minutes before straining.
Brown Sugar Chamomile Syrup

1 cup organic brown sugar1 cup water 1/2 cup dried chamomile flowers

In a medium saucepan combine sugar and water. Bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and add chamomile flowers and cover with a lid. Jessa likes to add one cup of flowers for a strong chamomile flavor. If you prefer a more subtle flavor, add just a half cup of flowers. Allow to cool and then strain into a clean container and enjoy. Syrup can be refrigerated for up to one month.
