Calendula still blooming...


The bees are settling down for winter, and Madeleine's Cream HQ is now a quieter glade. 


I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made:
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dro pping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet's wings.

I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart's core.

W.B. Yeats



Calendula, the great healer, and fragrant Rose Geranium, are still going strong here.

Time to order your Beeswax Ointment for those wind-chapped lips?

Beeswax Ointment

Beeswax is a key ingredient in Madeleine's Beeswax Ointment. It is soothing and softening, and helps the skin retain moisture. Even after processing, beeswax is biologically active and retains its antibacterial properties. It also contains vitamin A, a vital element in human cell development. 


Another vital ingredient in Madeleine's Cream and Ointment is Calendula. Pot Marigold, as it's also known, is antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and soothing to a variety of skin complaints such as acne, shingles, eczema, and can be used on cuts, scrapes, burns, scars, etc.


Madeleine's Beeswax Ointment also contains other flower essences, and uses the easily-absorbed almond oil as a base. 
Almond oil serves as a great emollient, balancing or restoring moisture in the body. It makes a marvellous lubricant and natural moisturiser thus combating itching and inflammation.
