Friday Roundup - March 11, 2016

What I've been reading, writing, thinking about and indulging in this week

Calendula calms troubled skin: I was so happy to see this article in Bustle giving an overview of the skin healing properties of calendula for acne, skin irritations and scalp problems and sharing several links to research. I love calendula oil and use it to make basic balm, ex libris balm and 3-in-1 Serum for irritated and acne prone skin.

Victorian Parfumers: I'm hooked on historian Mimi Matthews'  site, filled with articles about what British people wore and how they lived in the 19th Century. So I was even more excited to read her latest article about Victorian perfume blends and the botanical (and animal!) elements they used to make scents.

Which butter is better? Loved this handy guide from The Kitchn finally explaining the difference between European and American butter.

Have a great weekend!
