Spring is in the Air ~ April

Quote ~

See the land, her Easter keeping,
Rises as her Maker rose.
Seeds, so long in darkness sleeping,
Burst at last from winter snows.
Earth with heaven above rejoices…

Sandalwood Extra New Caledonia ~

The scent has an extremely soft, sweet woody and almost animal balsamic odor.
The oil blends so excellently with rose, violet, clove, lavender, bergamot.
It is considered a ‘blender’ fixative in countless woody floral and Oriental floral bases.

In the garden I tend to drop my thoughts here and there.
To the flowers I whisper the secrets I keep and the hopes I breathe.
I know they are there to eavesdrop for the angels.

Happy Spring!

Can you tell .. Spring is here .. and with Spring .. comes the Easter Bunny and of course Easter Egg hunt ..
Read how to dye your Easter Eggs naturally…

Here’s how to dye Easter eggs with homemade dyes from veggies, fruit, and spices around the kitchen. Lots of fun for kids of all ages!

First you need to determine your colors. Here are some of our favorites:

  • Green: water from boiled spinach
  • Blue: juice from boiled red cabbage (coarsely chopped), crushed frozen blueberries (about 1 pound)
  • Yellow: juice from yellow onion skins (about 3 large handfuls), ground cumin (boiled), ground turmeric (boiled)
  • Purple: grape juice
  • Red/Pink: 2 cups beets (grated), juice from lots of boiled red onion skins (about 6 large handfuls).

I have been following Nanotechnology for months now and this is very upsetting … Please take a moment to become aware of what they will / are doing to our foods.

Regulated or Not, Nano-Foods Coming to a Store Near You

The Nanotech Gamble: Bold Science. Big Money. Growing Risks.
A mounting body of research shows nanoparticles can cause disease and death.
But regulators are doing little to respond.
