I am curious about our herbal interests these days.
Are there any herbal interests any of you have had lately? Any projects you are currently undertaking?
Lately I have been making my own plant and oil based cosmetic products, some programmed with magical intent.
I have made attention lip glosses and perfume. I have made therapeutic lavender body balm.
Lately I have started making hair oils for neck, scalp massage and hair conditioning. I made up a winter blend that smells warm and spicy, woody with a hint of vanilla. The scent is reminiscent of the winter season. I am looking soon to make a SpringSummer scent that hopefully will be a little lighter and airy. Floral.
What I am starting to really want to pursue is plant and oil based soap making. I have made some when younger in the past but I forget the process and wish to try again. I will have to do some research on recipes and ingredients and gather materials.
What about other posters? Any interests you wish to start or have started that use plants?
I am also adding in another natural tea to try for Spring, a tea made from a nearby shrub. It utilizes the petals which are edible yet slightly bitter. I have already identified properly the plant and which parts are edible and some of its other uses, external skin care.
Any plans or interests related to herbal and plant remedies this year?
