Wow saw my description and realized how long it's been since I updated it. I'll just make the bday changes for now and update everything else as I can. LOVES <3 Just a couple of things you really need to know. I'm a girl, turned 21 in June. I'm a green witch (don't know what that is? ask) NOT wiccan, there is a difference. I'm Bi. If any of these things really bother you then you really should not follow me. They are a part of me and I don't hide them. I don't take my cues from TV shows on how to behave. Honestly I hardly watch any TV. I'm to busy living life to bother watching others pretend to. I am me. I speak my mind. When I love, I love with all my heart. I protect my friends and those I love.
As for following back. No, I do not always follow back. If I see something on your blog that catches my eye, chances are I will follow you. Please feel free to ask me to look. Oh an no I don't bite so feel free to leave a message.

Calendula (Calendula officinalis)
Calendula is a wonder herb that produces a beautiful flower that exudes sunshine and joy.  To harvest this highly resinous flower, pick it at its peak on a warm summer day.  When making medicine with calendula, it’s almost always dried first.  Drying calendula for oils decreases the water content, making a more stable oil, and it also concentrates the resins in the plant. When making a tincture of  calendula, a higher-proof alcohol will extract more of the resins.  Calendula will grow readily in your garden, often self-seeding after the first year of planting.  By snipping the flowers regularly, you promote its growth.
Calendula has an affinity to encourage connective tissue to regenerate, therefore it can be made into oils and salves and used for a variety of skin conditions including:
 Rashes
Burns
Scars
Scrapes
Varicose veins
Broken capillaries
Chicken Pox
Fungal infections like athlete’s foot
Internally it can be used to treat swollen lymph glands and soothe ulcers
You can also spread the fresh petals over your salads for added color and beauty
This is a must have herb for any budding herbalist (pun intended).  Shortly I will be posting a how-to for making calendula-infused oils and salves, which are like nature’s Neosporin!  Smooth on some calendula salve and your skin problems will be solved in no time!
