This will be an eclectic collection of posts about things that "have got me thinking." As the focus of this blog is "All things creative", you can bet the posts will still be about all things creative that have got me thinking, so...
For the past 2 weeks I have been looking at recipes and lists of ingredients. Now, if you know me really well you're scratching your head and wondering what alien has taken over my body. That's because you know I don't like to cook Well, calm down, I still don't like to cook but what's got me looking at recipes and lists is the wonderful world of handmade soap and more!! The idea of making my own soaps, bath bombs and body butter has got me thinking.
Now, my daughter Cassie was the real instigator of this idea. She has very dry skin and has been very unhappy with the lotions and creams that we have tried. She is also a die hard Lush fan. If you have shopped at Lush you know they have wonderful products, a little pricey but great stuff. So, I got to thinking maybe we can make our own body products. So, off to the Internet we went, and talk about coming to the party late!There are so many recipes and DIYs out there it's almost too much. So, I decided that the recipes most attractive to me would have the least number of ingredients, and the ingredients could all be found in my local grocery or craft store.
After our first attempt ( a success by the way) at a moisturizing body butter, I got really excited about the creative possibilities. Here's our first ever body butter. It has Shea butter, Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil, Extra V. Olive Oil, and Tea Tree and Lavender oil. Here it is:
Moving on to making soap led me to so many sites that I'll just share some pictures of a few of my favorites. Just search for handmade soap on Pinterest and , well you can guess the rest.
The different colored circles make this soap so fun and cute.
Can't you just imagine soaking away the stress of the day with this.
