My dear friend Fan gave me some marigold flowers harvested from a local community garden here in south London. Marigold, or Calendula, is known for its healing, soothing properties. I soaked mine in hemp oil for a few days and it has made a lovely moisturizer. Wonderful.
I'm Virginia and I run Goodness. I'm slightly obsessed with raw cacao and the medicinal properties of food, which runs in the blood (there are herbalists, nurses and farmers in my family). I'll be posting about chocolate, healing foods, thoughts, recipes and experiments.
