When I came home today I did three things (beside straightening the house)
- I strained the “must” of my wine and set it to ferment in the bottles,
- I freshly squeezed orange juice for my family and
- I used the peels to start an enzyme cleaner I read about here.
I also made some more orange vinegar cleaner! Since I had an overage of orange peels! Only two more weeks until I can use this (and share with my friend)
Sadly no picture of the wine, since it really doesn’t look that much different. Only the petals were strained out.
Then I have been working on these babies:
Little buttons made form apple wood branches! I strip the bark and sand them and then rub them with organic beeswax! Now I just have to drill the holes and find the perfect project for them to go on…
The colours are really pretty and you can see the “tree rings” really nicely with the bees wax coating. Sadly the light was not ideal here today to take a picture that does them justice…
(Pssst.. there might be some in the shop one of these days! So keep an eye out for them!)
And there was just enough time left in the day to make some lip balm!!
My own recipe!!! Beeswax, Honey, Olive oil, a dab baby oil and lavender oil. All organic. 🙂
My next mission? Finding lawn daisies to make a daisy salve!
