Blinking fabulous herbal medicine evening!

We picked, boiled, poured, stirred, sieved, squeezed, mashed, combined, chopped, layered, sprinkled mixed, tasted, smoothed, sniffed, listened, learned, asked, laughed and enjoyed.

I’m sure that we’ll all enjoy the delights of our elderflower  syrup; oatmeal, almond, avocado and calendula scrub; healing cocoa butter balm and herby bath bags. Who knows what the WI ladies will be using their jam jars for next…

Blinking fabulous evening!  Thanks, Julia.
