Where is the summer?

29 Jun

 Hi All,

Welcome to my blog! Its nearly July and where is the summer? I have just spent a whole evening making natural sunscreen for my three girls!! I carefully melted cocoa butter, coconut oil, sweet almond oil, distilled water and of the most important ingredient ‘Zinc Oxide’. Zinc Oxide blocks the UV rays and is also fab for dry, itchy skin. I applied it to my own face for testing purposes. Although it made me look a bit whiter than my usual milk bottle tone I am happy to say it blocked the sun (Well the 40min of sun that shone in Chatsworth!!). I feel better now that I am prepared if a heatwave arrives unannounced. Tomorrow I am going to the Pride of Place competition in Abbeyleix where I will have glycerin soaps, bath salts and moisturiser bars on sale, no nasty chemicals involved. All the stalls there are local and all produce high quality goods. Its amazing what you find when you go to your local Farmer’s Market!
