That's not gonna happen. Not only have I not edited those pics yet, but the kids have been here, meanwhile, for 3 weeks(!) and already gone... and I'm not gonna post about that either because guess where those pics are. That's right. In the camera, unedited.
I'm not without something to post about, though. It is peony season. One of my favorites.
Are you familiar with the fragrance of peonies?
They are heavenly.
As such, I had a brilliant idea to infuse the decadent scent of virgin coconut oil with the sweet scent of peonies, and then create a moisturizer with it. Oooo. Brilliant, indeed!
Yes. Two firmly packed cups of fresh peony petals
Blended with one cup of melted coconut oil.
The plan was to strain the petals after the oil was infused and add a bit of shredded bees wax for texture and, voila... fragrant, nourishing, body moisturizer.
Looks promising, right?
[sigh] I had such high hopes.
I strained it and set it aside for a future batch of deodorant. I think it could be salvageable for that, at least.
Next, I'm thinking peony water [think, rosewater...] I'll letcha know how that goes.
On the bright side, I do still have a bush full of beautiful peony blooms and buds.
Finding the blessings.
