Lotions and Potions

Moving along on my travel preparations, I made some lotions and other potions to pack in my toiletry kit.

Lip balm and shower gel were made using two kits received months ago on my birthday. I made the lip balm in both pot and tube form. Today I’ll glue a piece of pretty paper around the lip balm tube.

The lip balm and shower gel kits were easy, but too much so as there wasn’t any real sense of challenge. Ah well, the end results seem to work nicely and have a lovely fragrance.

My Arizona-dried-out skin desperately needs moisturizing so a bottle of body oil was created from a recipe found here. Then I worked on concocting Mermaid Lotion (I didn’t name it this) using the following recipe on a pretty graphic from The Vintage Workshop to which I added text (click on photo to enlarge for printing).

It’s quite satisfying to pack my toiletry bag with products I’ve made myself.

We truly seem to be traveling on the same wave, June! I just completed research on soap & lotion making. I hope make these items in the near future myself vs. buying more & more plastic! How did yours turn out? Smell nice? Any advice on what to do & don't do? Cheers, Julie

I love the sound of "Irish moss" as an ingrediant! Well done!
