Glad you made it over here. I wanted to give you a few herbal projects you can make this week to get started on your winter gift list. These will help you create gifts that your loved ones will love and they will double your joy. You’ll get the joy of making it with your own hands and the joy of giving. That’s a double win.
I believe in quick wins. Most of these gifts can be made in an hour or two with very little investment. You can easily double or triple the recipes for multiple gifts from one crafting session.
Don’t just make these for your gift list though. Make some for yourself as well. You’re worth your time. Too often we make stuff for others and then give it all away, without taking the time to make gifts for ourselves. But today, I give you permission to love yourself. Make something special because you are worth it.
And before you get into the fun of making stuff, I love it if you’d join my tribe of 175,000 other crafty folks getting empowered with DiY projects for greater self-sufficiency, healthier living, and more JOY. When you join my tribe I want to give you this gift. Just click on the button below :

Warming Cayenne – Ginger Salve
DiY Headache Salve from your Garden
Food Safe Wood Conditioner for Cutting Boards

You’ll have a little aromatherapy while you colour, too.

You don’t think this fits with herbal projects? Sure, this one is herbal. It’s made with pine boards!
