|Esm'e: pencil & glitter by Cherie Bender|
My magical folk I draw and paint to illustrate my Magical Cookbook are very real to me. They are inspired by my favorite fantasy artists and authors.
All I have done is open my eyes and ears and believe in what happens next! I hear tinkling, silvery laughter often in my herbal garden and I sometimes catch the soft flutter of fairy wings within the corner of my eye. I have a firm belief in Gnome helpers and Elves coaxing my flowers and herbs to grow.
In order to keep everything healthy, I do not allow harsh pesticides in my home or garden. I want to keep the eco system flowing so I try to only work with natural oils such as peppermint to keep unwanted visitors away!
My new cookbook that I am writing now, this Summer of 2016, incorporates these principles, and is so much fun to create!
My Magical Cookbook is percolating and simmering, blending all of the wonderful ingredients! My recipes include using natural ingredients such as herbs and flowers of the garden, combined for us to stay beautiful, young and healthy!
I am also creating organic, essential oil blends; Love, Cash Flow, Power, and Drive Calm (Protection) are some of my latest. I will be sharing some of these and my magical art for all who desire these qualities in their own lives.
Just like in all good cooking, savoring the delicious aromas and training the palette for delicate flavors rather than quick easy fixes takes time. I will be sharing another recipe tidbit from my Magical Cookbook very soon! Keep posted. I'm percolating!
In Good Health,
