salve

Part of the decluttering process is finding alternative ways to meet essential needs.  I have always been fascinated by herbal medicine and though I know a bit about the basics I would like to learn more.  I have played around with making lotions and potions and soaps but the driving force, the one that says “this is for real not for fun” wasn’t there before.

Now I’m not just making face creams for presents but because I don’t want to buy them.  I have a field full of comfrey full of lavender.  I don’t need to buy comfrey salve I can make it myself.

So today I did.  Three jars of comfrey salve, one of lavender salve and three of rosewater moisturiser.DSC_1657

 

Recipes tomorrow, because I have a family to feed and potatoes to dig up and salad to pick for supper 🙂
