Slowly getting into my stride in 2011 - legs 11!

Kicked it off with giving a talk at the Fulham W I –I accepted with some trepidation thinking of the slow hand clap given to Tony Blair. I needn’t have worried – I was greeted by a roomful of smiling faces of all ages - I was struck by their youth, I’d say 30 was the average age. Check out your own local WI - an interesting group and a good turn out on a rainy Monday night.

I demonstrated how easy it was to make lip balms and cooked up some on my little electric cooker – a first for me, but it went down well, making 30 or so small pots, while talking - so it really is easy!

Then I moved on to making a very simple mint oil salt scrub - at last using my mint oil I made in the summer - oil & sea salt - thats it.

I hope I encouraged some to realise just how easy it is to make your own natural cosmetics – start with something simple and move on.

My motto for 2011 is courtesy of a mug I got for Christmas (thanks Clemmie)  - see below

So go on – get excited & make something!
