Alright, here are a few photos of the package, beginning with essential oils:



Spearmint, Lime, Clary Sage, Juniper Berry, Geranium.  Two were unmarked and I know one should have been sandalwood but I forget about the other.  It smells a bit peppery but I can't make it out...  I haven't worked with sandalwood or geranium before so it's something to look forward to.



A couple of bars of soap, one is myrrh and the other is unmarked.  They both smell very nice though!  There is also a shave bar (!), a solid massage bar (!), and something called Black Magic that smells minty.



A Muscle & Joint, Rub, Vanilla Spice Body Powder (I'll probably sprinkle some on my mattress tonight), Eucalyptus & Mint Massage Oil, exfoliating sugar scrub, and a bath bomb.

And a repurposed bag made from a T-Shirt.

I also received a whole slew of roots, but I don't have photos of them right now.  They're planted in the garden but it's raining out.  Comfrey, valerian, mugwort, elecampane, woodruff and vinca.  I can't remember if there were more...  The last two arrived and were very dry (the roots are small).  I tried putting them in water right away but no luck.  The comfrey was sprouting though so that one should definitely be good to go.  And the rest will tell with time.

Thank you Monica!!

I posted this in the wrong spot :/

Behold the package of unholy spoilage from Monnie:


First soap a shave bar and a lotion bar


Then rose pedals from her garden to make my favorite tea.


A bunch of essential oils and a handmade tote I will use for herb gathering.


Sore muscle salve, cranberry spice sugar scrub and I forgot what was in the little jar. I have to say I love the sweet containers she uses.


This darling box had herbal recipes and earl grey tea (my other favorite)


Incense a holder a tea spoon and a pendulum.



And finally bath soaks and a horoscope disk.


What an amazing package. I feel so spoiled and pampered. I can't even imaginw how much it would have cost me to buy all of therse hand made goddies at our farmers market or something. Thank you so much. I think I'll take a bath tonight.

Did you make or buy that box Monica?  I like it!

I haven't gotten to using any of the bath and body products I received yet but am looking forward to it!  Just started using the gardener's soap you gave me last year, Monica.  I like how the exfoliant feels.  My skin feels really smooth afterwards.

No problem, Monica!

I've been meaning to post a photo of the comfrey.  It's doing really well!



The elecampane and valerian have also shot up a bit.  Not anywhere as big as the comfrey but I'm glad they survived!  I'll post photos of those a little later.
