While I don't sell these or get sponsored for mentioning these soaps, I love them! I used to buy the goat milk brand ZUM at my local grocers. But these are larger for the same price, locally made, and come in so many wonderful varieties. I use them and buy them as gifts as well. The brand is Mion and they are sold online and locally at my city's farmers market. I really love all the owner's projects and offerings.
I came across these lovely warm blushing purple hydrangeas at the grocers a couple days ago and had to have them. There were traditional baby blue, pink, and white hydrangeas. But these ones caught my eye. I am enjoying two things. First. I am working on painting these. I am realizing that when I paint larger, I need much more paint and larger brushes. That should make sense. But sometimes one doesn't realize until after starting that one is in the habit of working on a smaller scale. So here is the first run. I will be adding more paint and layers to this including larger and more generous brush strokes of paint, and darkening glazes in shadow areas....
I recently started diffusing essential oils in the home. Not only is it satisfying, it's fun to use. The variety of essential oils is vast and practical. One can get calming, uplifting, cleansing, sensual. It may sound hoaxy. But the oils really can lift the mood or calm the mind (in my experience). Even as a young child, I never liked the chemical scent of air fresheners. But essential oils are a different story. They are genuine organic oils (by organic, I mean not man made -- but some are certified organic too).
A few things I am Loving right now like this hippo sachet filled with jasmine and a hippo card. This matcha bowl, spoon, and whisk and also the marble coasters I got for Christmas. And this dry shampoo Rahua, which is 100% natural and made from absorbent clays and products from the rainforest. No chemicals are in it.
