German Chamomile and Lavender’s Skin Care Salve

Nancy Desjardins

Another recipe I want to share with you from Andrea’s "The Heart of Aromatherapy" book is German Chamomile and Lavender Skin Care Salve. You might remember that last year I shared the Calendula Healing Hand Salve, which I love! I grow lots of calendula (marigold) flowers in my garden, and then add them to my salads, make fresh tea, and dry the rest. However, it might be challenging for some of you to find calendula.

Magic Mineral Broth Recipe

Nancy Desjardins

Do you want to know the difference between good soup and great soup? It’s all about the homemade broth or stock. That is the rock-solid foundation on which fantastic soups are built. I’ve been making Rebecca Katz’s Magic Mineral Broth the last few weeks.This broth can be transformed to meet a myriad of nutritional needs, serving as a delicious sipping tea or as the powerful base for more hearty soups and stews. So, no matter what a person’s appetite, it can provide a tremendous nutritional boost. This rejuvenating liquid allows the body to refresh and restore itself. I think of it as a tonic, designed to keep you in tip-top shape.

Calendula Healing Hand Salve

Nancy Desjardins

My hands took a beating in the garden last weekend, and the salve was super-helpful. You'll love it.  Last summer, I grew lots of calendula (marigold) flowers in my garden. I add them in my salad, make fresh tea and picked the rest to be dried.  I made my first batch of calendula salve this weekend. I'm happy with the result. Great moisturizer for dry skin and for severely chapped or split skin.

Summer Garden in Bancroft!

Nancy Desjardins

I've spent the whole summer working from the cottage, and what an amazing summer we've had! The atmosphere is totally different up here. And, as you know, I love working in the garden. Our son Jesse, who now lives in Australia, came down this summer to spend some time with us. He had just purchased a drone, so we were his first project! He took some nice aerial shots of the Cottage/Garden.
