Making Infused Honey with Household Spices & Herbs

March 26, 2010

cinnamon infused in honey I wrote this DIY post for a local group of handmade artisans here in Philadelphia, for the Handmade Philly blog. But what could be a better project for my own readers than herb-infused honey, using readily available sprices from your kitchen cabinet and herbs fresh from the garden? Pop on over the Handmade Philly and check out the post.

How to make a Salt Scrub!

January 7, 2010

Okay, you can’t miss this! AroundPhilly.com sent a lovely journalist to my Port Richmond (Philly) home to interview me about how to make a salt/sugar scrub or body polish in the simplest terms possible. Of course I do have an earlier post on the subject, but it’s oh-so-much more fun to watch a video. Please make a comment and make me happy to have so many friends 😉


Philly Etsy Team Blog … Brides & Babies

Chamomile & Calendula Body Lotion for Baby (and Mama!)

Chamomile & Calendula Body Lotion for Baby (and Mama!)

You may or may not know that I’m a member of the Philly Etsy Team and proud to be a part of such a diverse & creative group of local artisans. I’ve participated in events with members at the local Indie Craft Market events, as well as through the City Paper Trunk Show on Black Friday. The Philly Etsy Team has a nice blog highlighting many of these crafters & artists http://phillyetsy.blogspot.com/
They recently put together a nice article for Weddings & Bridal necessities, including lovely jewelry and even Bridal Party gifts (note: Lilith’s Apothecary!!!).

January makes me think of new Brides and new Babies, believe it or not! It’s a time for retreat and reflection and I guess I feel as though we need to deeply celebrate & remember the most important happenings, events, rituals, and rites of passage in our human existance. I will be highlighting my New Mama & Tender Baby Products for my January Special because I want to encourage the use of all natural bath & body products for little babies as well as healing products for the pregnant and post-partum new mama… I just created a wonderful new chamomile & calendula lotion for baby. It has no added essential oils or fragrance but smells just like chamomile tea! Great for baby eczema or winter dry skin.
