it is cold
all the fields are resting
there is plenty of food
and fermented drinks
beer really saved the world probably..it was a clean way to get liquids in you even when the water isn't so clean and it makes you feel nice. This note isn't about beer though. It is about me making a ritual of soap and scent and texure....

Archaic Yuletide A Black Walnut Soap
In prep for this batch I gathered my resins. larch, cedar, mastic, myrrh, and ground them as finely as I could.
I then slowly simmered this in a stainless steel container in a water bath until it became a loose paste. During this phase I also added the balsam fir absolute which really needs a hot process melt to be loosened up a little..it is weird sweet and tangy and sweet again.
This was poured in to a soap formula at trace..trace mean that the soap cream is ready to be poured in a mold and have its chemical reaction...om...
Once thoroughly mixed in the resins dispersed evenly and very smoothly in the soap cream base! jajaja
I then added the walnut powder and essential oils of frankincense, cedar, cyprus and templin fir cone:)
