My Photo
Location: Katoomba, NSW, Australia

here I am in a little cottage that evokes the energies of my ancestral lands - a cottage on the moors of Cornwall, or on the cliff tops of Ireland or Scotland. It has a hearth. I am a hedge witch {of sorts}. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. I am a gypsy; an eccentric and a mystic [I often live with a foot in two worlds]. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. Star watcher and Moon gazer. story cloth weaver. keeper of family dreams and wishes. good friend and creator of life. herbal tea drinker and potion maker.

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

pampering oneself

now summer is officially over * our skin is dry and flaky * time to pamper yourself and give yourself a body scrub. First of all - use a loofah and give yourself a lymphatic dry brush exfoliation.
*then make yourself a body scrub using natural ingredients.
2/3 cup ground almonds or flax seeds
1/3 cup oatmeal or brown rice flour
1/2 teaspoon of lavender
combine dry ingredients in a blender until they are reduced to coarse meal. Store in a glass jar with a screw lid and store in the fridge.
whenever you want a body scrub, take 1/4 cup of meal and mix with enough milk or yoghurt to make a paste - rub over the body with hands or washer and rinse off. Don't forget to moisturize !
