~Herbal Aesthetics~ Decemeber Blog Party
We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open. ~ Jawaharlal Nehru
Welcome to the Herbal Aesthetics Blogparty! I hope you are feeling creative, because we have many herbal activities for you to try. I'm sure you will find something fun to make. All of these wonderful posts have to do with herbs for adornment, decoration or beautifcation.
Tina Sams of the Essential Herbal made a lovely post which includes a compilation of former blog posts related to herbal aesthetics. It includes topics such as wreath making, making leaf printed t-shirts, and lavender wand making.
November's herbal blog party hostess, Kristine Brown of Field of Tansy shared a delightfully illustrated how-to for dying silk with herbs such as Elderberry and Black Walnut.
Cheryl Dolby of Healing Woman Art shared her post on Herb Stamps. This is something fun that my daughter and I love to do also. Thanks for reminding me Cheryl! Thanks also to Cheryl for sharing the Madame Thyme photograph at the beginning of this blog post.
Cindy Jones of Sagescript shared a very clever way to make enchanting holiday tree ornaments with dried herbs such as lavender and rose. Cindy also included links to her archived posts on herbs for weddings and making scented valentines.
If you would like to learn how to make fresh herbal ornaments, corsages or boutineers then scroll down to see my new Herbal how-to blog post.
What would an herbal blog party on aesthetics be with out a recipe for personal beautification? Janine of Athena's Armory shares her experience making her Rosemary Gladstar's Miracle Grains facial cleanser recipe for personal beauty care.
Many thanks to all the contributors for the sharing your lovely herbal projects.
