Tällä kertaa olin kaukaa viisas, ja mitoitin tilaukseni niin, ettei veroja tarvitse maksaa erikseen. Eli summa jäi juuri ja juuri alle 22 euron. Toimitus tuli DHL:n kautta suoraan kotiovelle, eikä siinä mennyt kauaa. Jokseenkin tyytyväinen asiakas siis jälleen olen.
|Aloe veraa ja kukkaisvesiä|
I got my orderings from iHerb earlier last week. All my lotions and creams are exhausted (is that a right word?), except that sea buckthorn cream, so I need to make more and I wanted some new ingredients for them. For last summer I made body lotion with aloe vera juice and I was very happy with it. Now I want to make a new version of that. I was terrified about the price of aloe juice in Punnitse&Säästä -store, I don't remember to payed that much last time I bought it. Bottle of half litre costs about 22 euros, and it won't stay well many days after opening the bottle, if you don't freeze it. So I ended up to order aloe from iHerb, they had a very good offer for shipping costs too. A bottle about one litre of aloe juice or gel was only 6,50 dollars! And they promise it would be good longer time after opening, if you keep bottle in the refrigerator. Of course there are some preservations in this case. I also ordered some flower waters, rose, orange and chamomille. When the package came I read more specifically what they said about those waters - and I noticed, that those flower waters were distilled water with some essential oils. I don't think that flower waters here in Finland are made like that?? Or then I've been living in fallacy.
This time I had a far-wise and planned my orderings so that I didn't have to pay any extra taxes - my order totals was just under 22 euros. Shipping was by DHL, straight to my home door and it didn't took long time. So I was quite satisfied customer again.
Kuivattelin aikaisemmin niitä ruusunmarjoja. Parhaiten se onnistuu minun kokemukseni mukaan siten, että puolittaa marjat ja kuivattaa siemenineen. Kuivista puolikkaista on sitten helpompi kaivella teelusikan varrella siemenet pois. Hidasta, mutta ei mahdotonta. Tällaisia aarteita siitä syntyi...kyllä näistä jotakin saa aikaiseksi. :)

I was drying those rosehips before. I got the best results when I cut the berries half and then dried them with their seeds. After that it was so much easier to digg off the seeds with teaspoon. Slow, but not impossible. These kind of treasures I got...I definietly can do something with these. :)
