Frankincense and Myrrh Hand and Body Oil for Chapped Skin

40 ml glass "Basquaise mig" jar with hand and body massage oil made from sweet almond oil, frankincense and myrrh essential oils. Vitamin E added as the only preservative.

This bottle is tied with gold ribbon and comes with card listing ingredients. Lovely as Christmas gift. Please specify secular or religious nature to card.

Frankincense and myrrh both have strong antiseptic qualities. Of the three gifts the Wise Men brought to the manger in Bethlehem, the gold may have been the least valuable, though a lovely present as well, and surely needed.

Scent is fresh, clean, pungent and exotic. "My" nurses especially love this oil for chapped and dry skin in northern winters, as they must wash their hands so many times a day at work. I can tuck into package a plain plastic container (please specify) for safely perching on sink basin.

Organic Bug Repellent

1 ounce plastic container with flip-top lid, of organic bug repellent. This container carries well in pockets for gardening or camping; flip-top lid ensures no back-flow of grime into bottle. Contains sweet almond oil, proprietary blend of essential oils, vitamin E as the only preservative. This is good for people and dogs. (Dogs can lick this off and be fine!) No pennyroyal. It will repel wood ticks and deer ticks, as well as mosquitoes, gnats, horse flies and deer flies.

Because essential oils are volatile, this may need to be re-applied as often as every two hours, if one is exercising and perspiring freely.

Old-Fashioned Rosewater and Glycerine Hand and Body Lotion

1 ounce square plastic bottle with elegant white ball top, the old-fashioned rosewater and glycerine hand and body lotion our great-grandmothers made up for themselves. Still the best thing after all these generations! Quickly absorbs into skin, leaves no residue, except
exquisite scent of roses, not garish or over-powering, just relaxing, and truly, an aphrodisiac. Nothing but rosewater and glycerine, except for a smidgeon of red food color to accent its very light pink.

Giving Ground's Very Famous Boreal Forest Triple Antibiotic Ointment

Nurses and their families order this from me when nothing in their orthodox pharmaceutical cabinets works. Olive oil and beeswax base, usnea lichen, northern white cedar twigs and pine needle essential oil, vitamin E added as the only preservative.

This is a magickal salve for lacerations, sword wounds, sunburn, cooking burns, bites and stings. It is anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal; helps with toenail fungus, ringworm patches, yeast infections, kills off MRSA (methycillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus). Often helps with psoriasis and eczema when nothing else works. 2 ounce double-walled plastic jar.
