Time again for my weekly wrap-up! It was quite a weekend.
Friday night I made two soaps: Spearmint Patchouli and Carrot Ginger Orange.
Saturday I made 4 lotions – Dry feeling lotion, luxury facial cream, luxury facial lotion, luxury conditioner.
Today I made one more soap (Dragons’ Fire) and got my pictures taken and measured the pH of my lotions.
I’d say I had a great time! I love my weekends! And next week is a long weekend because I am taking July 3rd off work (the day before the US Independence day Holiday). So I will have a 4 day weekend! Can’t wait! Continue reading “What a weekend it was!”
Wow, I don’t know how time flies so fast! I blinked my eyes and just like magic, it is Sunday night already!
Yesterday it was cloudy and rainy, so I spent most of the day taking pictures of the lotions I had made last weekend. I only had time left to make one lotion last night.
Then today, I made 3 more lotions and managed to get some “draft” photos of them. It was sunny again, so that always makes my camera non-compliant. Continue reading “Four Successful Lovely Lotions and Conditioners”
Today is officially the last day of my vacation. Tomorrow it is back to spreadsheets, meetings and long hours of I.T. related work.
As I decided to sleep in today rather than get up and have an early start to my day, I only got 2 things made, but they both turned out great, so I am happy!
Today, I made 2 lotions – Cocoa-Nuts Lotion and Vanilla Cream Moisture Therapy Hair Conditioner.

Last night, instead of being lazy and sitting around watching TV (which I really did feel like doing for some reason), I made one more thing — a thick cream.
I enjoyed the scent of my “Hello Gorgeous” soap so much, I wanted to make a thick cream with that scent (Avobath Type). It turned out great, and I love it, so this one is for me (not for gifting).

Around Christmas time, I made a hemp bergamot cream. I have been using it for months and was down to my last bit of it, so tonight I revisited the recipe to make some more.
Since I made it the first time, I have acquired a few new ingredients, so I reformulated the recipe to include more skin goodies. I wanted to make this into a dual purpose intensive body cream as well as a deep conditioning hair mask / conditioner this time.
I decided to call this one “Tsunami” because it drenches you in waves of moisture. Continue reading “Time for a Refill!”
It was my husband’s birthday this weekend. As such, I didn’t get as much done as I do most weekends, but it is also important to spend time with those that you love. Luckily, my husband is an artist and during some of the time he spent with me, we worked together on photographing my products. 🙂 Continue reading “More progress and some revisits”
On Saturday I posted a teaser for a couple of soaps that I made that day. Today I unmolded and cut them. As promised, I am posting the “after” pictures.
