If not dairy-free, can I use regular milk?

Yes! you can use milk you would like in this recipe, though I am partial to the creaminess of oat milk.

Can I make this moon milk without rose buds?

Yes. I like doubling up on the rose here for a rich moon milk, but the Rose Cardamom Honey provides more than enough rose power for a tasty moon milk.

Can I omit the ashwagandha?

Yes, you can, but it will not have as soothing an effect or as many health properties without it.
