I have already been using the lip balm and it a feels nice on my lips.  I am not sure what else is in it but I love it. 

Of course I forgot some of the info!  The lip balm ingredients are beeswax, jojoba oil (I used golden), (local) honey, vitamin E, and lavender essential oil.

I'm glad you like your package.  =)

I thought it had a sweetness to it, but I thought I was nuts lol It really is very nice and it should last awhile since I don't need to use much at a time Smiley

My partner Gingerpeachy has received her stuff, but she is super busy with awesome life stuff right now, so I offered to post pictures of the stuff I sent.

Firstly, a lavender-scented eye pillow, because as Ginger said, you can't have too many!



Then, a few tea-infused beeswax candles (I used this tutorial: http://ru-bees.com/blogs/news/7773787-making-herbal-tea-infused-beeswax-candles). One is Earl Grey Creme, and the other is lavender hibiscus. I had never made candles before!



I also made her a neck-warmer (or bed buddy or whatever). The outer sleeve is knitted washable wool, and the inner sack is muslin filled with flax, chamomile, and peppermint, with a little lavender essential oil.



I included some cleavers that I picked from the alley behind my house, and an herbal tea blend, in weird little tins that I found at the craft store!




I received my package today, and will be posting those pictures soon.

I received Saturday-ish (checked mail Monday) from Jnny_heck. At the moment I'm fighting with my cat over a couple items. :|

First: Hair Teas: Stimulating: rosemary, parsley, green tea, lemongrass, nettle, spearmint
Relax: (and I'm fighting my cat over this): catnip, lemon balm, chamomile, flax, thyme
a bag of marigold seeds
Some little wooden plant signs (Rosemary, basil)... I'm fighting my cat over these too. She wants to chew the wires.


Then ... a hand-stamped "How to grow sprouts" book, with a jar... pre-marked with fill line and holes punched in the lid. Alfalfa seets, a broccoli brassica blend, and ancient eastern blend. I can't wait to try this!


I think I got everything! I was looking at the items to describe what was in the photos, but my cat is now napping on top of everything. And biting or scratching if I try touching any of it.

I guess.... my cat really loves everything you sent her Cheesy hahaha.

I received from my partner today but it's my birthday and I've been out of the house all day.  Just got home and need to start packing for the cottage.  So no photos until Sunday, nor will I be able to answer any questions should there be any.  Everyone but Eclectic Dreamer and hawkeyes_girl should have feedback.  Please take a look and make sure you all have a positive!  Have a great weekend!
