CHRISTMAS IS COMING! And with Thanksgiving, and the snow falling, and the sun shining, and all the real life stuff we've been busy with, it's been hard to find time to MAKE and CREATE and BUILD!

But there's never been a better time for it - personally, I've been thinking CHRISTMAS presents as I prepare for this challenge. What 'natural medicine' related gift can I make for my loved ones? And I'm excited about making soap, and a still, and.. and ... and.... AND so many people have BEGGED to extend the due date!

And so the team at Build-It and the team at Natural Medicine thought, what the heck, let's extend this due date until DECEMBER 21ST which is solstice!

Each week we'll reward entrants with some tokens for their efforts, but we won't be making the final decision til just before Christmas.

Who are Build-IT?

Build-it are about empowering and strengthening DIY projects, how to tutorials and life hacks. They were set up to reward high quality DIY and 'how to' projects and you can earn 'build' tokens by using recommended tags such as #diy, #build-it, #how-to, #doityourself and #build. They even have a condensor - https://build-it.io/.

Natural Medicine often sees these tags alongside #naturalmedicine because many of our folk are equally into self sufficiency and resourcefulness, making their own rather than buying from a store. We've run challenges like this before where we've seen all kinds of 'make your own' projects such as making your own deodorant or clothes washing powder, and of course lots of yummy healthy food recipes!!

The Entries So Far

We're going to include two posts that came in via a comment just as we posted this challenge. One's an awesome vegan recipe and the other is a bamboo bike build! Congratulations @justinparke and @stortebeker - you both recieve a few LOTUS and BUILD tokens for your efforts.

Only two official entries so far (that is, they followed all the rules!)

Double Purpose Herbal and Beautification by @olivia808, about growing a garden and making a herbal moringa linament
A Garden Bed for the Kids by @porters

Both of you will be rewarded with some BUILD and LOTUS tokens.

The Challenge (In Case You Missed It)

This challenge is a little different because we're going to ask you to 'make' your own project from scratch - something you have never made before but always wanted to. We want you to document it as a step by step 'how to' in an engaging and creative a way as possible.

Try to choose something challenging! We love Build-It's tag line: DO IT NOW! This could be a great opportunity to start that project you've been putting off for ages!

You must 'build' or 'make' something that relates to 'natural health' - this, of course, is very broad! And remember, Christmas is COMING! Some ideas:

  • Make your own bath salts to gift to a friend
  • Build your own altar for meditative rituals
  • Build an outdoor fire bath for self-care
  • Make your own deodorant
  • Make your own apple cider vinegar or try pickling for the first time
  • Set up a self watering system for your permaculture garden
  • Make your own still for essential oils
  • Make a hydrosol out of your favourite herb and package for gifting
  • Try making your own vitamin pills, tea or herbal cookies
  • Make your own soap
  • Make your own colloidal silver
  • Make your own vegan cheese

Sounds interesting. I'm a bit if a string artist and would love to use something more natural then the acrylic crap I have to settle with.

Oh that's a creative idea! Love it!

Thank you for validating my entry.
I hope everyone will be submitting some interesting and informative post.
Keep it up @naturalmedicine.

ย  ยท ย 7 days agoย 

Sorry and/or thanks. I wasn't intending that post as a submission cause it wasn't technically submitted from either frontend. I've been super busy lately, also trying to finish an unrelated post I've been working on for 5 weeks. With this new due date, I may be able to make a special post just for this. Sorry I've been not so active lately, I want to participate in more of these challenges/contests.

We would so love you to take part, but totally understand when you can't. The Steemiverse is a bit quiet at the moment, so it's nice to get a comment like this to show a bit of support xx

Sweet! Now I will participate for certain, with an amazing post. I was a bit worried, as certain bike parts had to be ordered, but by the 21 I should have the thing completed.

Excellent! Yeah I'm the same, I have lots to make and do but won't be freed up til the 13th, so I'm stoked too as it will give me th epush I need (not that I'm eligible)

All with the upcoming Christmas. Here is my review of the contest. I hope you enjoy it. All health and profit.

Awesome!

Glad for the extension!
Although I did get one in (thank-you for the rewards!) I would like to get another entry together - Great Challenge!

Yes!

Can it just be a steem post? We don't do the .io things so I am concerned my entry and @cassidydawn's entries wouldn't qualify if we have to post them there. We both have something to enter, though...

Oh it's so easy to enter on www.naturalmedicine.io - you just log in with your steem keys as usual! It's exactly the same!

Did see your entry and will accept though!

ย  ยท ย 2 days agoย 

https://steemit.com/naturalmedicine/@freemotherearth/healing-altar-of-spirit-or-no-more-idle-hands So if it doesn't count over not posting on the .io, then it was at least a good excuse to create the post. Otherwise, here's my entry! Who knows, with another 16 days before the deadline, I might get a second entry in...

Accepted - and yes, do twenty entries! But I do insist you post at least one on www.naturalmedicine.io... xx

I hope so!
