Big Exciting News

Hi everyone, big news!  I am now a vendor at Adjectives Market in Winter Garden, FL.  My friend Susan Steele Meyer is sharing her space with me, and I’m so excited. Susan paints porcelain, and she’s the one who painted my “special day” cookie plate.  She has lots of beautiful items to choose from, and there is always something new.

Adjectives is on Plant Street right next to Rosalie’s, a wonderful little French Cafe, so when you come to shop, you can also have a great lunch.  Here is my display:

I feature my soap, lip balm, healing salve, lavender & peppermint linen and room spray, and lots more.  The Bloom and Grow Garden Society’s Spring Fever in the Garden Festival is this weekend, so I hope to see you all there!


Herbal products now available!


After years of making soap and other herbal products as gifts for my friends, and also just for the fun of it, and constantly hearing people tell me, “You really should sell this stuff,” I finally decided I would. I have been a vendor in two plant and garden festivals and now am pursuing a location where I can sell my products.  Here are photos of what will be available:

Lavender and peppermint homemade soap– very mild with a great lather.  I use all vegetable oils (coconut, palm and olive) and pure lavender and peppermint essential oils.  Grapefruit seed extract extends the life of this all-natural soap.

Also included is lip balm made with beeswax from a local (Ocoee) beekeeper and flavored with lavender and peppermint essential oils.  Very smooth and creamy, and the vitamin E in it is super good for your lips.


Or, if you want just lip balm, you can get a pack of three for $10.

Add a cute handmade tissue holder with lip balm. $10

Or support your favorite team while keeping your nose clean! $10

Need to relax at the end of a long day or relieve stress?  Try this lavender pillow over your eyes. With dried lavender buds and flax seed inside, it can be heated up in the microwave, chilled it in the freezer, or used just it like it is. Ahhhh, so relaxing!  $12

Do you like clean, fresh-smelling sheets?  Try this linen and room spray with lavender and peppermint essential oils.  It also contains some isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol, so spray it all over the house, especially during cold and flu season.

It comes with a roller ball containing lavender, peppermint, and lemon essential oils in sweet almond oil.  Roll it on your temples, back of neck, and wrists, and take a deep whiff of the relaxing aroma.  Some people even say it helps with their headaches.

The little lavender sachet is my gift to you.  Tuck it under your pillow or in a drawer to keep your clothes smelling fresh and clean.  $20

For those who like working out in the yard or doing anything that leaves your hands dry and chapped, you’ll love my all-purpose healing salve.  It contains coconut and olive oils, vitamin E, and three essential oils: tea tree (melaleuca), lavender, and lemongrass in a four-ounce jar, and it smells wonderful. $10

When it’s time to wash up, whether in the kitchen or bath, why not use a 100% cotton hand-crocheted wash cloth.  They come in several colors, but white and green seem to be the favorites. I bring out the red ones around the Christmas holidays. $10 for two
