Oh my! It’s that blissful time of year….and an unexpected free day today! Loving hearing the birds singing, astral green leaves everywhere, sun shining (hurruh!), being in my garden, and blissed out by wild flowers and the wildness of this time of year. Jack in the Green has been busy and the earth has woken up and thrown out a myriad of colour all over, who needs a TV?! There is always a special, new kind of magic in the air this time of year; waking at dawn to hear the birds welcoming in the new day, sunlight filtering through the trees, bees busy at work, smiley faces everywhere as the energy lifts the spirits. The seasons are so cool! I love the beauty each one has and the gifts it contains. I’m in heaven today with the unexpected day off, ahhhh, what a blessing! Pottering in the garden, relaxing in the sunshine, nowhere to go, marvellous!
Orders coming in for calendula oil, and I’m out of stock! So waiting on my plants to grow so I can harvest those gorgeous orange and yellow flowers and transform them into the best oil for skin, to keep it looking great or to heal those sore places, including nappy rash. I have a secret store left for myself, not sharing it though as I can’t live without it!
Really looking forward to our June workshop at Sedgwick on how to make all those lovely, natural skin and health products from the glorious array of herbs and ‘weeds’ in our gardens! Early bird price closing 15th May so book now if you would like to come. Sedgwick House is a treat in itself, amazing gardens, labyrinth, magical woodland, it’s a great place to spend the day and learn how to make the best products for your skin. Our skin doesn’t need the stuff from the shops, it does a lot better with pure ingredients like shea butter, almond oil and the herbs we find easily. This is pure food for the skin and body, easy to make, costs very little, not tested on animals, no rubbish in them! This is the third workshop I have done there and this time we’re going to make elderflower cordial as well as face and body products, love doing this stuff! And the calendula should be ready for us to use too!
Huge blessings for this wonderful spring, long may the sunshine continue, England is magic when it’s sunny.
And now….GDPR, grrrr! Perfect yoga nidra, working with opposites! Sun, bliss and greenery one minute, terms and conditions, privacy policies and brain-aching stuff the next! Got to be done though and thank goodness for my web lady who is on it, thank you!
