I received the most lovely package from dreadlocklove!


packed with tons of goodies!  Cheesy


Jam jar bonnets.


sun-dried apricot butter, lavender jelly, dandelion jelly, and pickled ginger!


chives, dandelion leaves, celeriac leaves, and skullcap


hand-painted dandelion mug (it says "make a wish" on the handle).  Dandelions were my favorite thing to play with outside when I was a child (which my partner didn't know!), so this is extra special to me!  The tea cup tea infuser thing is super cute too!


mug cozy!  love the colors


sprouts! Cheesy


castille soap, and bath bombs


a lovely eye pillow in my favorite color, an herbal vapor balm, and some skullcap tincture.  I'm going through a very stressful time in my life, so these have been a life-saver.

Thank you, dreadlocklove!  This is one of the best swap packages I've ever received.  <3

I'm glad you like it!

You said one of your favourite herbs was mint so I threw in the skullcap because it's a part of the mint family.  I wanted to give you something different (that is, if you've never tried it before).  It's one of my favourite teas too and is very good for stress.  I was chronically stressed a few years back and after three days of a three-cups-per-day regimen, I recall sitting in my reading chair and it just hit me how at peace I felt.  I hope you feel the same benefits.  =)

Something told me to add in the skullcap tincture even though I prepared it a while ago.  I didn't want to come across as rude by just adding gifts that were made outside of the swap but I'm glad I listened after chatting with you last night.

I received a beautiful package from Ginger/sinellia this morning!  

Two different types of tincture.  The first is Nerve Ease and contains chamomile, peppermint, catnip, skullcap, yarrow, and hops.  The second is dandelion and is intended as a liver detox (I need that!).  Also, there is some a reduced-sugar/sweetener pectin that I've never heard of (we only have the Bernadin variety where I live) so I'm excited to try that.



A couple of tincture bottles...  A jar of Happiness Sugar Scrub which was made by Tree of Live Body Nurture, a friend of Ginger's).  Between that and Ginger's bath salts, which use the same essential oil blend, that package was smelled really REALLY nice when I opened it!  The blend is unknown but I definitely like it and will have to check out the company's website to see if I can get my hands on some more products.



Lots of herbs!  They were all listed in my questionnaire as favourites:  Holy Basil, Chamomile, Marshmallow Root, Echinacea, Maca Root Powder, Goji Berries, Skullcap.  All organic too!



And finally...  A jar of lavender syrup that tastes yummy.  I have some blueberry and rhubarb crumble baking in the over and I added 3/4 of the jar to it.  I can't wait to try it!  A beautiful floral pendant.  The frame is made of brass, and the rest with washi paper and a non-toxic 3D crystal glaze.  It's really beautiful in person.  The back has some small engraved details.  My next all-for-me project will be a chain for this.  Last but not least, a knitted panta headband that I had favourited on Ravelry.  It's browner than what's shown, and made of cotton I believe.  As big as my head and hair is, it fits (which is nice because the weather has cooled down drastically this past week)    Grin



It was really nice to meet and get to know you better through this swap, Ginger, and thanks very much for the swap!

EDITED TO NOTE:  The panta is made of ORGANIC cotton!  =)

amymisha - I'm glad you liked it all - I hope the apron isn't too loud for you. This was a fun swap to do. I just want to add a couple of shots of the grimoire inside





I only wish I could have done a whole complement of botanical illustrations for you - but that's really not my forte. Can't wait for your pkg to arrive!

The apron is not too loud at all. And it has jingle bells. Sorry I didn't take or post as many photos as I should have. Smiley The grimoire is awesome, I have been curled up with it all week.

And I can not stop practically sticking that soap up my nose it is so yummy!!!
