If you remember, I started an infused oil of Plantago on June 12, and it is ready today for straining and bottling. The color was rich and green with an earthy fragrance . . .
. . . so I strained it . . .
. . . without force . . .
. . . and put a small amount in a glass jar, heated it with some beeswax and a touch of lanolin and stirred it until the wax was fully melted and mixed . . . on a whim of inspiration I added three drops of essential oil of clary sage . . .
. . . and let it rest until it firmed up . . .
. . . labeled it and have it on hand for skin in want of soothing, cooling and healing.
And when that was done I started a new batch of herbal ale. This time, Melissa ale. I know, I know! I still have this process to share here! All in good time . . . all in good time . . .
It also seems that folks really like my spirit cord choker necklaces, so I made a new listing for them at my Etsy shop as well. I think I'll give two away for Win a Whimsy Wednesday this week!
So, there it is: A bit of what I made today.
