Experimentation with herbs and essential oils is a glorious thing…
After experiencing several months of immune stress and shut down, I’ve enjoyed new avenues of exploration in health and wellness, including discovering the benefits of numerous plants, including a great new favourite — hyssop from Israel, (which I found was wonderfully delicious sprinkled on salads, scramble eggs, pizza, and just about anything!)
After looking into the health benefits of all manner of plants, including those used as essential oils, I tried a new blend of patchouli, lemon, orange, frankincense, and bergamot, 10 drops each in 2 cups of sweet almond and coconut natural oils. This makes for a wonderful massage oil after exercise and is warming and calmative for strained muscles and aches. By the way, bergamot oil is famously used in Early Grey tea, a favorite beverage of mine, especially on cold wintry evenings.
With all of my plant (planetary?) meanderings, I can’t help notice I’ve found little time to blog. I’ve missed you all, however, since many things bright and beautiful await, I must keep exploring… See you again soon. We’re blessed with a wonderful world…let’s keep savouring good things and make the most of every day.
