    Howdy! I'm a DIY cosmetic/herbal fanatic. I'm also a registered nurse, and while I legally can't offer treatment/cures, I do test everything on myself and everything I make is used by my family and friends. :) I grow everything organically myself, and buy only natural/organic products to infuse with such as coconut oil, olive oil, grapeseed oil, etc. It's my hobby and I spend a lot of time researching the herbs I use. 9 times out of 10 if I wouldn't be okay eating it, I don't put it on my body!

    I've got a few things to offer in swap:

    1) Soothing Skin Balm (contains: coconut oil, olive oil, cocoa butter, beeswax, vitamin e oil, lavender essential oil, rosemary essential oil, and peppermint essential oil)
    *I use these particular essential oils because: lavender is useful in soothing irritated skin, rosemary has awesome regenerative and restorative properties, peppermint has cooling properties---and the three of these smell sooooo good together!

    2) Frankincense & Rosemary Deodorant (contains: cocoa butter, beeswax, coconut oil, baking soda, arrowroot powder, frankincense essential oil, and rosemary essential oil)
    *I chose this particular combination of essential oils because: frankincense offers a calming effect, and it is also very holistically healing; rosemary is antibacterial and in conjunction with the coconut oil it is part of what combats the bacteria that makes for stinky pits).

    3) Fresh Face Mask (contains: French green clay, baking soda, vitamin c in the form of ascorbic acid, peppermint essential oil, lavender essential oil).
    *This mask will tingle! Feels wonderful and cooling on a sunburned face, but do not put too close to eyes, as the peppermint oil might make them sensitive. Just use as you would any other face mask.

    Either comes in a 4oz glass jar with lid. Two equals a swap, in any combination. PM me to discuss.

    I've got a picture of the skin balm loaded, and the deodorant comes in the exact same container as does the face mask.

    I'll have more to offer as the summer progresses--- I've got plantain oil infusing, comfrey oil infusing, and dandelion oil infusing as I type.

    I also have:
    -Comfrey plants (in various stages of maturity----from new shoots to plants that are nearly 4 feet tall).
    -"Grab bag" of irises: various hues of purple and a golden yellow. They're all planted together, so I'm unable to tell which plant is which color, as they've already bloomed this spring
    -Lamium: gorgeous purple blossomed ground cover with two toned leaves. Spreads and covers nicely.
