Apple Head Bay Leaf Kitchen Doll
I made these appleheads last summer from my 130 year old Gravenstein apple trees. I handcarved then dried each. Every one is unique, no two are alike. I added Spanish moss for the hair, and beads in the eye holes. The open mouthed ones have grains of rice for teeth. I gave each a little makeup, a chefs hat handmade by me, a necktie, and a hook for handing. I make these with both Bay Leaves and Eucalyptus. The leaves are handpicked on my property and have not been exposed to any harmful chemicals.
Bay has long been known to be an effective fragrance and flavoring agent in cooking. Just pluck from doll as needed. Bay leaves contain eugenol which has anti inflammatory and anti oxidant properties. Can be used topically to treat bruising and sprains, bacterial and fungal infections, and to increase blood circulation. Also a very effective insecticide.
Each doll measures about 8 inches long, excluding hook.
A great housewarming gift, and a one of a kind delightful surprise for any kitchen.
Will last pretty much forever. A card with suggested care and use will be included with each order.
