Fresh batches of bâtons finally on the shop shelves! The soap filled sacs make a wonderful gift. If you're thinking of ordering for the holidays I'm going to spruce them up a bit and stick a sprig of fresh white pine in each one.
I'm attempting to get a handle on soap wrapping, but falling short of the process lately. Today I vow to wrap soap allllll day! I have done that many times, but prefer to mix it up those duties making other things in between.
Holiday postcards arrived yesterday and I worked late night addressing them. A trip to the P.O. to pick up postcard stamps and ship orders on today's to-do list.
Yesterday I made a fresh supply of headache sticks. I know we would all prefer the holidays to be stress free and relaxing, but knowing that's not the case sometimes. Ta-da, peppermint headache stick to the rescue!
Actually, if you're suffering from a stress or tension headache the stick will have little effect. On the other hand, if you're experiencing a migraine or sinus headache the peppermint helps open the constricted blood vessels that produce such pain. I also believe if you're having a holiday stress headache allowing yourself some quiet aromatherapy time helps to appoint a new mood.
Ingredients: Olive oil, grape-seed oil, bee's wax, peppermint. For those of you that have sent me e-mails requesting the ingredients used to make the sticks.
Hope you're enjoying a caring and sharing day!
