Naturally scented healing homemade face and body butter.

A few weeks ago an email lobbed into my inbox. An email from a Spanish girl now living in Australia. Turns out, we’d swapped sides of the world at almost the same time, back in 2013.

So I belong to a long lineage of women who had ancient knowledge of alchemic beauty and health and who gifted me this wisdom, one generation at a time, over many years.”

Pretty cool, huh?

Thanks, lady! Continue Reading →
