Calendula & Lavender Balm!

We spent the week melting down beeswax & olive oil and combining the magical medicinal flower calendula w/ some lavender. Kids love carrying this pocket size balm around and being prepared for all the shenanigans that they get into.

This balm can help heal scratches, bug bites, itches, chapped lips, and more! Calendula grows like a weed in our garden but it is a great smelling flower and pollinator also! The lavender was from both our garden and the neighborhood. We have collected it all on some nice walks around Orca this Spring.

We got some time to dance a little too, celebrating the end of a fabulous year here at Orca!
