The land of milk and honey.......

Ahhhh.....bliss.... I love this life.

First the exciting news - we are the proud "parents" of a baby girl. Ian found her in the middle of the road with no sheep anywhere in sight, and no houses either! We can only assume that she fell off the back of a truck. Amazingly she is uninjured and feeding well, with proud step-mum Pearl babysitting her between feeds. Her name is Louise as she was found near Louis Ponds.





I have been indulging myself in homemade skincare products. I hit the op-shops, eBay and the library and have amassed a few great books on herbal/natural skincare. I have made Quince cleansing gel, rosewater toner and lavender moisturiser, and lots more. Just waiting on a delivery from this site which has great stuff dirt cheap! I have sourced beeswax from a local apiarist at the unbelievable price of $6 a kilo, it's $56 a kilo at my local health food shop. Great for adding to moisturisers and lip balm and at that price I can see some candles being made. I made rosewater yesterday, I nicked some open blooms from the council gardens lol..... they smell so good but would have been dead the next day so I didn't think anyone would mind. Besides I pay rates! I have also been making soy melts for the oil burner, so easy and much nicer than burning parrafin wax. I got the wax from here. I have experimented with loads of essential oils, I have about 15 different oils that I have collected. Got heaps of books on aromatherapy too. I would love to do a course on all this but they are so expensive to do..... one day.......
