rosemary/nettle shampoo bars in the works
My dear friend Nicole and I have been soaping!
Well, Nicole has a soaping business, and I have been hangin' with her and getting inspired.
Two weeks ago we worked on a double batch of rosemary/nettle shampoo bars, and i must say...
the house smells heavenly!
Also in the works is a new deodorant recipe we have been tweaking.
I think we almost have it right where we want it...
Nicci likes to work with herbs and natures own ingredients....
clays, teas, and essential oils.
Coincidentally, so do I!
Yeah...so much for spring here in west Michigan.
Rain, cold, snow, sleet, hail, more rain, more cold..and a itty bitty peek at the sun.
And that was just yesterday.
OK....exaggerating just a teensy bit.
There was actually no hail yesterday.
The rest is all truth.
In spite of that, I went outside yesterday with my camera to see what was what.
Pretty sure this is motherwort.
What I'm not totally sure of is what to do with it.
I mean, I know what it can be used for...
just not sure I'm goin' there.
your guess is as good as mine!
My mystery clump(s)
Scattered through a portion of the back yard are these clumps of somethin' or other.
Definitely not quackgrass or crabgrass.
Perhaps some type of hyacinth?
I guess time will tell, cause I sure as shootin' don't know right now.
Hopefully we will get a glimpse of spring before summer arrives!
Meanwhile, I'll just keep on...
