i may be the last person to discover the amazing benefits of coconut oil, but just in case i’m not the last, i thought i’d share this powerful hair treatment with all of you. my friend jenna ragonese is truly amazing. besides being the person who motivated me to open an etsy shop, she is a massage therapist with a deep love for the healing arts. i’m always fascinated by the natural tinctures and remedies she is so often sharing with her followers. i emailed her last week in need of a natural remedy for my dry, damaged hair and scalp. and oh my gosh did she deliver!! before i followed her advice i was in deep need of a hair cut. my ends were split, dry and just looked fried. my scalp was dry and constantly flaking (embarrassing!), but now my hair is soft, and luxurious and my scalp is clear! hallelujah!
coconut oil hair treatment
2-3 tablespoons of coconut oil (depending on how much hair you have)
10 drops of rosemary oil
10 drops of tea tree oil
heat the three items on the stove over medium heat until the oil becomes watery, just a couple of minutes. let it cool before applying it directly to your hair and scalp. wrap your hair in cling wrap and leave it in your hair for 45 minutes. *you will feel like a grease ball, but just embrace it!
my hair has never felt better after using this treatment. i don’t need a hair cut anymore! thanks jenna!

tomorrow is the wichita art market at bluebird arthouse. it’s a great venue and events such as these really solidify my decision to pursue being a professional ceramic artist. some mornings i wake up and i feel like an amateur, not entirely sure if i’m getting closer to that career goal. but every small success truly reminds me that i’m lucky to even have this as a hobby.
i start each morning with gratitude, thankful that i can work toward my goals in my basement, everyday.
this green speckled vessel is one of the first things i made when i started making pots. sometimes i go over to my parent’s or grandparents’ house, heck, even some of my friends have some of the most horrifying and embarrassing pieces of pottery i’ve ever seen. it is really funny to go back and look at some of my wonky works – it always makes me feel pretty good about where i’m at!
so many gold vases for the fair!

(can you believe it’s already the holiday season?!)
