Oily Activity

About a year ago my mom helped me get set up to start making all my own lotions in order to avoid questionable ingredients and unwanted chemicals.  Well...I've gotten lazy and have just been using the oils by themselves as a moisturizer.  I also add some essential oils sometimes for fragrance as well as different health benefits.

The girls have been BEGGING me to make them their very own facial oil.  So, that's what we did the other day!

They sniffed every essential oil I had.  Lauryn decided she wanted to add sweet orange oil to hers.

And Molly decided on lemongrass.

I (with my lovely manecure) did the mixing and pouring.

Then we decided they needed some stars on them.  (And since the chore charts have fallen by the way-side....we happened to have an abundance of stars!!!)

    Oh my goodness, I don’t know why I haven’t done this before! Well, I guess I do, but now that I’m back where I can things a little more easily (not many people visit Peru to bring stuff to sad missionaries :) ) I need to make some lotion. I’m almost out of my satsuma body shop lotion that I cringe about even though I love the smell. Do you have a book or website you can point me to where I can learn more about getting started?

    Oops, sorry–I just saw this! I’ve come across a few recipes for things and I ordered all my supplies from Majestic Mountain Sage http://www.thesage.com/ All the oils, containers and everything. I think they may have some recipes there also!
    Have you made anything yet?
