Healing salve recipies...

I used Naked Salve 1/2, coco butter 1/4, and shea butter 1/4 for this.  I added extra bees wax to the naked salve.  I filled better than bullion jars about 3/4 full of the above.    These are all healing salves. The number beside the EO oil is how many drops I used of each kind.  I added that to the jar then poured the warm melted salve in.  Cover with a paper towel and let cool.  Posting here so I can find it when I want to make more.  I use a blend of this all time instead of lotion.  My battle with eczema has taken a turn for the better in doing this.  I have another blog post with some of these basic ideas and then was reading and so blended.   I plan on using the wake up of a morning since both lemon and bergamot are oils to lift your mood and wake you up.  The anti-aging??  why not play with it :)

Sand Hills 2014

As a Church group we spend the weekend at the Sand Hills again.  This year proved to be WINDY.  Setting up tents wasn't very fun, and then Friday night the wind blew all night.  We woke up to cloudy COLD winds.  Temps in the 50s but add 30 mph winds and you are sand blasted.  Still it was fun!
We had about 40 people.  Most of them under 18!
 I think there were 10 above, figure the 12 and under crowd added to about 16, that leaves some teens!
One very interesting thing we learned is just how good lavender is on sunburn.   Several, ok many were a tad sunburned yesterday and those that used doTERRA Lavender had no pain, no redness this morning those that didn't...................   I did offer it to anyone.  :)


Remember the child that thought he could not finish school and play??? His weekend was school in the camper!  
 I love windmills and have a of this windmill.  Seems to be my favorite target.

Sand disc scattered up the little hill by camp. 

Littles digging

 Not sure what kind of flower this is but they were pretty.

Camp!  or part of it since we had 6 sites and all of them full!  It was a fun weekend.  The wind did die down Sat. evening after dark and made for a beautiful night and early morning.
