Happy!!!!

I am so happy...why, do you ask?! Because Joanna at The Soap Bar reviewed my Almond Soap and she gave me a great review!! I am so happy, she had so many great things to say about it!! It's always great to hear good things about your product from a totally unbiased source! My friends and family always tell me how much they love my soap but I feel like they have to ;)

So in my effort to build my product line I attempted to make some solid perfume. I made three different scents. Two of which I made with essential oils. I was going for a sort of aromatherapy type product. I made one with lavender essential oil for relaxation and the other with peppermint essential oil for an energizing blend. After trying them out I realized quickly that they wouldn't work as solid perfume because essential oils aren't designed like fragrance oils and the smell doesn't really stick to your skin. I reviewed the recipe and realized that the recipe is almost identical to a lip balm recipe so I used the lavender one last night on my lips and I love it!!! The recipe had shea butter in it so it's super moisturizing and the lavender smells so great. I would have never thought of lavender in a lip balm but I love it!! Now I just need to get them posted to Etsy.
