Well October did not go to plan. I have spent the last few weeks under the duvet surrounded by a sea of tissues and Thieves Oil.
My craft had to take a backseat while i was awash with misery and mucus. feeling truly sorry for myself. In October! of all months!
November has now hit full force, as i gingerly peek out from behind my curtains at the outside world all i can see is the golden colours of the season, muted by the grey of the sky and the dampness in the air. My thoughts are turning towards the Winter Solstice and i have readied the covenstead for the change. I have felt stagnant of late as i have not travelled as much as i would have liked these past few weeks. The smell of the breeze and the colours of the hedgerow as i whizz by in the broom always fill me with a nostaliga of days past, but also a promise of things to come. Never knowing who i will meet next, and hearing their tales and stories. nothing interests me more! So this week i wait. my cough needs to subside just that little bit more and it will be back to the travels and plans i have had to postpone.
This is the recipe for Thieves Oil should you want to make your own. I would not be without it!
40 drops of Clove Essential Oil
35 drops of Lemon Essential Oil
20 drops of Cinnamon Essential Oil
15 drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil
10 drops of Rosemary Essential Oil
Store in a cool, dark place in an amber oil jar. To make a spray, just add a few drops to some distilled water and away you go
* Please don't put on the skin if you are pregnant due to the oils in the blend.
