Ive been researching natural remedies and recipes these past few weeks to have a go at making bath and body products in preparation for Christmas gifts - and for fun. There is a lot of work involved because of allergens and compositions that wont mix! Ive had a right little scientists lab experiment going on in the house (which smells bloody gorgeous right now) and have decided to put some of my ideas on my etsy.
Ive enjoyed designing the packaging, researching what preparations work best with the basic ingredients and how organic I can keep the compositions. My online friend, Darcy, has been a real gem of support as I tried to give them a little fun name which in the end I plumed for "Love Love" bath and body. Simply because I love, LOVE smellies.
I have three mixtures at the moment including Honey and Lemon with vitamin e
Cherry Rose with vitamin e made with crushed rose petals and a single rose petal for decoration. Id like to add that the pestle and mortar action makes me cringe as it squeaks together. Must try and find better ways to crush petals into a powder!And Lavender Mint (looks the same as Honey and Lemon right now)
Im toying with some other concoctions especially relating to wintery chapped lips plus I have some bath melts in moulds for an over night set to contend with over the next few days - does anyone fancy a free trial?!!
Im absolutely thrilled to say Ive sold a few pots since they went online HERE tonight but I guess this is just the curious rush for now. Id love to be able to sell a couple of pots a week to keep it all ticking over and in the process they are adding lovely aromas over the smell of undercoat! Im going to see if any local beauty parlours might stock it, you never know :)
I doubt Lush will be run out of town but still, nobody can accuse our lips of being dry and unloved!
