Create and design a product with three applications.

Reiki is an organic water buffalo milk beverage that is infused with saffron, pistachio and jamun. Reiki represents a life energy; healing practice that can be used for many ailments such as stress, headaches, pain relief, respiratory problems, anxiety and many more.

The water buffalo produces milk with 100% more fat, higher amounts of calcium, protein and other vitamins and minerals than that of cattle derived milk.

Each flavor of Reiki is infused with an extremely beneficial flower, fruit or nut to produce a highly nutritious, yet flavorful dairy beverage.

What’s Unique?
What makes this project unique is the product choice. Cattle milk is an everyday item for the average person. I was looking to create a product that was something fresh and new to try. The name Reiki, water buffalo and the infused ingredients all correlate with many Asian cultures for a unique experience.
