I love my rugged & resilient hands.
I have worked with my hands for several decades as a massage therapist and crafter of most of our household products. The key ingredient in both practices being my ever present resource of pure essential oils and other plant potions.
Oh the kitchen table alchemy!
Be it handcrafted soap, deodorant, toothpaste, lip balm, body butter, glass cleaner, bathtub scrub, wood polish, make up remover, sleep remedies, salad dressing, mouthwash, muscle rub, cough syrup, you name it…
I love the fact that I can repurpose my packaging and containers, over & over…
Anyone can craft their own natural remedies, care for their body & mind, or cook from scratch. This is HOLISTIC self-care. Good self care practices expand outwards to have a positive impact on the whole of our communities.
So I suggest getting your HANDS in there! Get up from your desk! Get a little dirty!
