Some recommendations:


Sadly, I am out of exotic truffles. I've had to resort to some of my old standbys... Happily, it is a very *good* standby. Dagoba makes a very nice variety of flavored, organic chocolates. Many of which are very dark and wonderful. My favorites being Roseberry, Mon Cherri and Lavender.


This is my latest fun find! Aromatherapy Sea Salt scrub! Deliciously scented sea salt sitting in a blend of oils. It exfoliates and moisturizes at the same time and feels decadently luxurious. If I ever have any personal time again, I may have to figure out how to make my own versions of this stuff....


This is part of my own personal stash of dried herbs (and herbal sugars and chocolate). They turn into cooking spices, teas and medicinal applications, depending on variety. If I had cross beams in the ceiling they would be covered with hanging herbs drying... (Much more romantic and atmospheric than the dehydrator :-)

Your cupboard of herbs looks interesting. Ages ago I went on a healing herb course, we walked around locally identifying wild plants and then learnt how to make tinctures and ointments etc with them for various healing/medicinal uses. P.

Yes - I'm addicted to that sort of thing! Normally by this time of year, I'd be making tinctures, infusions, syrups and jellies - but alas, illustrative deadlines prevent much time spent on my herbal obsessions... I'm doing a bit, but will mostly have to wait until next year....

I'm amazed at how many kindred spirits really exist 'out there'. Isn't the internet a cool thing - where one can *find* other like-minded folks?
