It’s Friday already. How the week flew by! Only a couple more days left to get my “to do’s” done. Luckily, I have already done everything on my original list and now I am down to just a few personal refills and maybe a couple more things just to do for fun!
Today, I spent the day making a refill of my favorite Wheat Germ, Flax & Rosehip Hair Conditioner, a new experimental sugar scrub I am calling “Lemon Butter Scrub”, and a new gel cream I am calling “Cooling, Hydrating Water Gel”.

Santa brought me a chemistry set this year — stocked full of new and exciting things! Surfactants!
So what did I do with them? Well, I managed to not blow up the kitchen, so that was good… but it wasn’t exactly a success on my first rodeo either! Continue reading “Santa brought a chemistry set!”
Whew! What a week I had at work. I was so glad it was Friday, I just couldn’t wait to get started making some body butters and lotions for my Christmas giftees.
Unfortunately, I had a few chores which ate into my time a little bit, and my husband caught a cold, so he slept in later than usual, which also limited the amount of time I had. Luckily, since I started early (Friday night) I was at least able to get four things made this weekend before running out of time. I made large batches this time, so even though I made only 4 things, there ended up being 9 jars/bottles in all!

Besides making soap this weekend, I also made quite a bit of lotion.
In my last post, I talked about my experience with Wheatgerm Oil Soap and said I would comment some more on my experiment with Wheatgerm Oil Conditioner. You will find that below.
On Friday, I published an entry about my experiment with making a redness concealer.
Saturday, I made a refill of my Tsunami lotion, because I already used up 16 ounces that I made a couple of months ago.
And today, I made a new lotion, using Nurture Soap’s “Black Pearl” fragrance. Continue reading “New Lotion, Conditioner and Refills (and something new for the apothecary)”
Who doesn’t love a rich, creamy, decadent body butter?
What if it also had lanolin and a host of other skin-loving goodies in it as well? It would be a fantastic foot butter, great for dry skin and feet!
But wait — there’s more! What if it also contained oils, butter and emulsifiers that were great for your hair! It would also function as a thick, intensive hair conditioning cream!
Better yet — below is a free recipe for this wonderful creation! Continue reading “Free Recipe – Lavender, Rosemary & Mint Foot, Body and Hair Butter”

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”
