If there was ever a brilliant excuse to do something a little special in lockdown, it has to be Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re baking for your sweetheart at home or want to deliver a lovely treat to your nearest and dearest, I’ve rounded up some ideas to brighten up your weekend. Lemon Basil Almond Drizzle Cake This cake is a firm favourite from East by West (page 95). This is a lighter take on a classic lemon drizzle, with a beautiful freshness from the basil.

Copper is best to use because it has antibacterial properties and, looked after, it will serve you well for years and years to come — which is good, as once you start, you won’t want to go without it!

I’ve been doing it for 10 years this February since learning about it as one my first Ayurvedic lifestyle tips and tricks from my meditation teacher Gary Gorrow in Sydney, Australia. Check out the links below to get your own Tongue Tingler, find out the dos and don’ts and how to use it for best results — happy Tongue Tingling!
