making lotion

My latest attempt at making beautiful and natural skincare products is body lotion. I literally whipped up a batch this afternoon. It looks and smells good enough to eat, which you could without any harm. No toxins, anti-bacterials, preservatives or unpronouncables. This is a new experiment for me and I think I'll keep one batch in the fridge so it keeps better. I smeared the pan "drippings" on my hands and it feels smooth and luscious - oh, that's a great word for a gray January afternoon! Ingredients: distilled water, calendula infused olive oil, cocoa butter, almond oil, beeswax, vitamin e, grapefruit seed extract, teeny bit of borax.

How did it turn out Renee??

How did it turn out Renee?? I would LOVE to try some!! I just came from a website recently where they tested for products, which claimed to be made with organics. The test failed for many companies including a line from Dove and Face to Face (just to name a couple). I feel ripped. :( The organic "soap" actually wasn't soap at all but rather, a chemical detergent. Yuck!

...just a bit of shameless promotion. I would really love to get my hands on some of this girl! :)))
