Eierpunsch is a hot sweetened alcoholic drink from Germany that is commonly found at Christmas markets - but it’s easy to make at home. As usual, there are many variations. Here’s one recipe:

1 bottle of white wine (750 ml) ~ 4 eggs (or 8 yolks) ~ 5 tablespoons of sugar - 1 packet of vanilla sugar (or 2 tsp sugar + 1 tsp vanilla extract) ~ Pinch of cinnamon ~ 4 cloves ~ lemon juice ~ 250 ml of strong black tea ~ whipped cream ~ 50 ml dark rum (optional)

Prepare tea as usual; allow to cool. Whisk sugar into the eggs (or yolks) and add a little cold white wine; beat vigorously. Add vanilla sugar to the mix. Pour in the remaining white wine, cinnamon, cloves, lemon juice, and cooled tea. Optionally, add 50 ml of dark rum. Transfer mix to a pan and gently heat, but don’t let it heat too quickly, remove before it comes to the boil. The mix should be foaming. Remove cloves. Serve hot and foamy in a mug with whipped cream on top and a biscuit. Prost! :)

Unapologetic

Black Man,
made with
brown sugar,
black vanilla
and lemon tea.
smelling like
fresh cinnamon
warm ginger,
and basil leaves.
tasting of
turmeric, cardamom, and
cayenne.
sway your hips, style your coils
and cry if you need,
you are magic too.

Harry Potter House inspired bath bombs! 

Scents:

-Gryffindor: a spicy vanilla base with middle notes of clove and cinnamon and rounded out with almond, pepper and a touch of sweet.


-Slytherin: Tobacco and black tea are the dominate notes with hints of fruit and spice.


-Hufflepuff: Cinnamon Buns!


-Ravenclaw: Vanilla rosewood, black tea, birchwood and cedar, with floral and leather notes. This is my take on a library scent!

Stats:

All bath bombs are made with citric acid, baking soda, kaolin clay, grapeseed oil, fragrance oil, and witch hazel.
