These tattered notebooks contain over 12 years of herbal recipes, potions and lotions.
Some awful, some REALLY awful, some with promise and some that are incredible - many of which I still use today.
Join me on Sunday 24th February for the Kitchen Cupboard Cosmetics workshop to learn how to make weird and wonderful natural products.

A calendula macerated oil is one of my favourite things to make, either using a sun method or double boiler/bain-marie (pictured). The finished macerated oil has a nutty, earthy fragrance and can be used as a massage base or in creams and balms.
Calendula is particularly useful for inflamed, irritated skin or to heal scar tissue
After speaking with a #holistic dentist I decided to experiment with some #herbal #toothpaste recipes.
This current recipe with a base of coconut oil and including #peppermint, #clove and some other herbal extracts makes my teeth bright and leaves my gums feeling soothed.
Sublingual (under the tongue) and buccal (between the cheek and gums) administered drugs or remedies are able to enter directly into the bloodstream. The essential oils and herbal extracts used are therefore important not only for the health of the mouth but also for the whole system. 😁
