Pampering With Herbs & Essential Oils
For years my sister-in-law has given me lavender and told me to use a little on my bed linens so I would sleep better. Did I try it? No. Well, about a month ago I was having a hard time sleeping and I rubbed a little lavender oil on the bottom of my feet before bed, and I slept so much better! I have another friend who is really into essential oils, and she gave me a some to try. I have a book that has recipes for different uses, and I am finding it very interesting. This gave me an idea for a gift box. I had a needlepoint that was from the 1960's and it had flowers and herb designs stitched on it. I decided to use it to make a box of pampering pretties. I made sachets, essential oil covers, a relaxing eye pillow sachet, room sprays,a soap bag and more. There is a new magazine coming out in May called "Willow and Sage" by Stampington Publications. I think I'm going to check it out!
