Carols are being sung, advent calendars are being opened, and most families are preparing gifts for loved ones. As has been a tradition in my household for a few years now, I continue on in making gifts for family.
I search my cupboards, bookshelves, craft bins, and pinterest for inspiration. This year I found inspiration on my herbal shelf. With some common household ingredients and some herbs you too can make some nourishing gifts for loved ones this year!
One of my favourite things to make is beard oil. I first heard of the idea from my husband and knew that I shouldn't need to buy some when I have perfectly fine ingredients at home to make a unique one just for him. I had some tobacco essential oil that Mike Strathy gifted me after ordering some moose hide from him. This oil was sweet yet woodsy and I knew it would combine handsomely with some Cypress essential oil. And that was the beginning of my beard oil adventures.
