The Flame Haired Solstice Dreamer

Cold winter brings the Everfrost and jewels every tree
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
A flame~haired dreamer wanders there and shelters from the wind
And spins her dreams around the trees to break the ties that bind
She takes her thread and spins anew and how the Greenwood smiles
As she spins a spell for freedom and for her spirit Wylde

The dreamer finds an ancient oak and shelters in his lee
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
Tis summer now and birdsong weaves its magick through her spells
And humming bees drum drowsily in the foxglove's bells
The dreamer sits beneath the oak with yarn upon her knee
And spins and knits and weaves her dreams and sets her spirit free

"When birds fall from the sky and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people...shall come unto the earth from many colors, classes, creeds, who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again. they will be known as the warriors of the Rainbow"

~coconut oil & a sketch~

i am sitting here with coconut oil massaged into my scalp and hair.
for some reason my scalp has been sooooooooo itchy and today, despite a rosemary rinse after washing, it was driving me crazy.

so a quick trip to the susun weed forum and all i had to decide was do i use olive oil or coconut oil?

well we have both so i opted for the coconut, some generous massage and getting swampy to check i had got down to the scalp and here i sit...another five minutes and i shall wash it out...

except i now have the dilemma that its my shampoo~faith in nature seaweed~that is giving me the itchies.

i also did me a drawing today~my submission to 'what i wore today' on flickr

i found i really enjoyed sitting there and making a cartoon me...


coconut oil washed out...we shall wait and see...

Love the cartoon!
I find coconut oil great for my hair - which is very dry and curly. Gives it a lovely shine.

I would be interested to hear if your oil treatment worked, as I suffer itchy scalp, despite using aloe vera shampoo from the health shop.

coconut oil is good for eating, cooking and body massage. brilliant stuff

beware of rosemary.. I am highly allergic to it..maybe that could be it? use just an apple cider vinegar diluted with water to rinse the hair.

hi everyone!
glad you liked the sketch, it was fun!
kath~the coconut oil worked a treat, although i did it again at bedtime, wrapped my hair up in my floral 'buff' and slept on it. only very slightly itchy and very soft hair. i think with repeated treatments it will go away. however i am now considering giving up store bought shampoo and using home made :)

All things share the same breath~the beast, the tree, the man, the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports.
