I'm on vacation from my corporate job. And I can think of nothing better than puttering in the kitchen and catching up with friends and family. My first day off I baked six batches of cookies which seem to be disappearing quickly. Today I devoted to restocking products and trying new twists.
I started with two batches of soap. The first batch is a customer favorite lavender & lime and the second batch is my hubby's favorite, lemongrass. In the coming week I plan to add a few more batches to the mix. Toner was made and bottled and then came lip balm. I made a fresh batch of lavender lip balm. It has become the most requested scent. Besides organic lavender essential oil it contains Vitamin E and organic carrot seed oil which is great for the skin and leaves your lips feeling oh so pleased.
Bee's Knees was next. It's from a recipe I found to recreate that famous bees lip balm. The first time I tried it I made a half batch to see if I liked it. It was so I good I made a full batch today. It is a lush lip balm made with cocoa butter, organic coconut oil, and organic peppermint and rosemary essential oils.
Today I experimented with deodorant. I just made one tube to see if I like it. I had purchased an artisans deodorant on vacation that was scented with rosemary and lavender. I really liked the addition of rosemary so I combined it with sweet orange for my trial run. The combination tickled my fancy so I made a tiny batch of lip balm with sweet orange and rosemary as well. Yum!
