I received a cast iron Dutch oven favorable for cooking soups, stews and beans! I also received a plant – a Camellia sinensis which, for all intents and purposes is tea! Depending on how the leaves are processed, you can enjoy green, white or black tea from this species. And from Camille I received Cumin (which makes me smile big because I LOVE Cumin!) Now that’s love!
Camille got a bag of items including glitter tattoos and a bracelet and of course you have to have 1 candy so she got Valentine Peeps! I also made up a coupon book for her because she loves that sort of thing – one for a sleep over with friends, another to pick the dinner that day and a spa night with Mama, etc...!
I find it hard to buy for Dan, he seems to always have everything and then some - plus I really do not want to get him started on yet another hobby or project!!!! So for him he gets chocolate covered pomegranate seeds and an oil scent I blended just for him (oh, and for me of course!) I started with a base of Sunflower oil and added essential oils that have a masculine feel. I used a bunch of Sandalwood and added some Sweet Orange, Vanilla and Ylang Ylang. YUM! Smells great on him!
I will also be spending time today with a few of my other loves: tea, yoga, crystals and meditation. These things bring a lot to the natural healing that I thoroughly love! Healing yourself and helping to get yourself back into a positive place is what I am working on learning and hope to be able to add to my services to help others (but I guess that is a whole separate blog spot for another day!) Either way, I myself will enjoy them on this day... Feel free to share what you love to do in the comments below!!!! I would love to hear them!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
