Hey guys!  Check out the dandelion hand-moisturizer that I whipped up this afternoon!  I harvested two cups of large dandelion blossoms, as well as whatever violet blossoms that I happened to spy, and using a double-boiler I used a heat-infusion method to infuse the phytochemicals of the dried dandelions with about a Tablespoon of dried calendula petals fried from my garden last year, with one cup of coconut oil.  After it melted I allowed it to cook for 2 hours!  The oil was HOT, but not simmering, nor boiling by the end.  Then I strained out the mark after allowing it to cool somewhat and added 20-30 drops of lavender EO for scent and preservation (red thyme oil could also be used as a preservative).  Oh!  I also included 2 teaspoons of some deep red rose-infused honey that I made a few years ago (it's really delicious!).  I placed the 1/4 cup pots onto my altar pentacle to be charged for external healing under the auspices of my goddess, The Morrighan!

I actually made some dandelion tea last night. It wasn't bad, sort of like green tea to me
