While studying Ancient Egypt, we learned that the Egyptians would use oils made from wonderful plants and spices to rub the bodies of the deceased before they are wrapped for burial. We used the Rosemary plant (above) and some Cinnamon (ground, dried) and olive oil to make our own lovely oil (healing, especially for aches and pains). We put everything in a mason jar and set it in a sunny window for over a week, shaking it every day.
After that, the boys strained the oil in a stainless steel strainer (cheesecloth would work also)
Then I just had to share these sweet pics of Willow dressed as a ballerina. You know, in this house of all boys, it was a welcome bit of pink cuteness. A friend gave us the outfit. We all enjoyed the evening of watching her spin and twirl with her 15 month old silly self. :)
Spring has sprung and its great to be a part of it! xxoox
