When should I drink moon milk? This delicious and calming drink is meant to drink right before bedtime to calm you and promote a good night’s sleep. However, if you are having a stressful and restless day, you can drink it at any time.
What kinds of milk can I use? This recipe calls for coconut milk for its non-dairy aspect with a creamy texture. My second go-to is a blend of coconut and almond milk. Any non-dairy milk can be used to keep the vegan aspect, but if you prefer and tolerate cow milk that is also an option.
What is moon milk for? The idea of this warm drink is to bring a grounding and calm energy to you when you need it. Paired with a ritual, it provides space for you to reconnect with yourself, and let go of your struggles. The herbs and berries are sleep supportive so you can get a good night’s rest.
Make it a Ritual
Moon milk helps me go with the flow when the day feels stressful. Driving into what is present and in the moment. Making a ritual every moon cycle speaks to me, and I hope this process will speak to you too. It nourishes the soul, mind, and creative nature. All the important things.
We have been going through a major transition lately, yet it’s still only in the decision process. Have you been there?

Trust that everything is falling into place and that everything is going to be okay. Count everyday blessings and be absolutely certain that we are being led in the perfect direction. Use ritual to come back to yourself. Breathe deeply.
At times like these, the magic and ritual of moon milk are necessary.
