A night with Food Fusion and Nixon James


Food Fusion Experience

Nature’s Relief had the honor of taking part in our second Food Fusion Experience hosted by Bellezar Umhlanga.

This was a plant-based evening hosted by Nixon James in collaboration with Bellezar, Khula botanicals, Nature’s Relief and Recon Health.

The intention for the evening was to showcase how delicious and enjoyable gut friendly foods can be incorporated into our lives so that we can live a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle. Nixon James created the beautiful Thai inspired meals while drinks were made by Khula botanicals and infused with Nature’s Relief products. Our MC for the evening was Duke Makina and Matt Jones was our co-host for the evening.

Health doesn’t have to be boring though, we were able to infuse some of our drops into the food and drinks which ensured that everybody had a relaxing, healthy and fun evening.

Nature’s Relief Infusion Drops

Khula Botanicals made some incredible drinks for the evening that we were able to infuse with some of our drops. We chose our Sceletium drops and Cordyceps Mushroom tincture drops to infuse drinks. Our guests were also able to choose if they would like extra Hemp or Canna infusion drops in their drinks or even on their food.

Your gut is like your second brain and food is a big part of how health and wellness work. Food can be used as medicine. If you put the right thing into your body, your body can heal itself.

We chose Nature’s Relief Sceletium for it’s mood-enhancing properties. Sceletium is an excellent broad-spectrum mood enhancing and emotion-mediating herb. It integrates mind, emotion and body and allows for deep bodily and mental relaxation. It calms obsessive thinking, is emotionally grounding and supports freer expression of thought, feeling and speech. It is altogether healing on the psyche and the heart, and engenders a profound integration of mind, body and emotion.

We chose the Nature’s Relief Cordyceps drops for their immune-boosting properties. Immune boosting cordyceps known to improve lung function and physical performance. Contains anti-aging properties and blood sugar modulators. Cordyceps have also been shown to lower cholesterol. Cordyceps sinensis has traditionally been used in Chinese medicine to increase energy, stamina, libido and endurance.
