Sometimes I have a habit of (re)reading certain blogs that genuinely appeal to me, I devour them in like bees do with nectar. Marble and Milkweed is my kind of flower. Run by Briar, who concocts botanical and alchemical apothecary creations for beauty, mind, and soul. What separates her from everyone else is how poetically she captures her creations: teas, body oils, etc- and how she chooses to ethically approach and support her shop. Using organic and plant derived materials, her blog doubles as a peek into her workstyle and individual do-it-yourselfs, like this chocolate enfleurage. I was really happy Briar took the time for this interview – I only wish I could have asked her in person with a cup of her tea.
- good food: lovingly grown, lovingly prepared
- a long hot bath
- time in the garden
- time with my sweetheart and people I love
- work that I feel good about doing
