Today I made a lovely smelling lotion made from calendula flowers and raspberry leaves. I also added wonderful oils and vitamins for collagen rejuvenation. I can't wait to give this one out and see how it works for people's skin. With eyebright extract, I suspect this one will be wonderful as an under eye intensive.

Pictured is the lotion I made today, as well as the first calendula blossom growing on my patio. When I harvested the raspberry leaves they were not fruiting, but thought it was neat to show you all the wonderful raspberries growing in the garden. Perhaps I'll make a raspberry fruit tincture!

Tomorrow, I'm doubling the batch for "orange blossom". This is a wonderful lotion used on the face, hands and body. In using it, I've noticed smoother and softer texture in my skin. It's so pure and clean it is perfect for the face and neck. I'm also going to re-make the sugar facial scrub.
