Our first group made a care package filled with treasures. First of all, we grated beeswax and lemon with coconut oil to create a lip balm with a dash of honey. Then the children cut up rosemary with scissors, and crushed lavender with a pestle and mortar. The mix was used to create a fragrant body oil. Finally, our busy workers crushed up dried chamomile for a relaxing compress or cup of tea. Rachelle (Isabelle's mum) kindly gave us some lemons, from her abundant tree, for a nourishing foot bath, and we finished the package off with sprig of rosemary for a face wash in warm water.
Our second group carefully hand painted pots into which they planted some beautiful flowers.
It was wonderful to see the love and care the children brought to these tasks. One of the children said, "My mum is so kind and takes good care of me, she cooks for me, she plays with me and gives me big hugs!".
