I sat and made myself a priority list of what I really want to accomplish in the upcoming months, then made my order for that fantastic sale I wrote about earlier. I couldn’t resist a few new scents to enjoy and got two new ones from the company for the amount I spent. *bashful smile*
Anyway, I focused mostly on bases and essential oils, since they’re usually so expensive. I got five EOs that are thought to help with inflammation, as well as a lotion base that has Evening Primrose, another antiinflammatory. *happy dance* A great start for making some items to potentially help ease chronic pain. I also got some more menthol crystals and a mortar and pestle, to improve my rub and because I’ve never seen the tiny bag of expensive crystals on sale. Lol.
I have some chocolate products that I want to make and picked out a few items to fulfill that line. I mean, how can chocolate NOT sell? *grin* While reviewing the recipes that call for soap base and for cocoa butter I had a light bulb moment. I was happy to see that cocoa butter soap base itself was on sale too for a great price, so why not make things easier and have it all in one? My nose still likes to remind me of the funky smell of when I accidentally burned a bit of cocoa butter while melting it (has to be melted to add into things). So, avoiding a repeat and reducing the steps is quite exciting for nerdy ol’ me. *smile*
I got a few goodies, just can’t help myself, that I’m really happy about. One customer has psoriasis and I found that neem oil (in a special recipe) should help them. I can’t wait to see if I can help give her some relief! For pure fun I got a pearlized and foam booster, to increase lather and silkiness of my bubble wash. Since the bubble wash can be used for bubble baths I think the kids will enjoy the extra bubbles. *grin* I also finally found a five star rated coffee FO to use in soap with ground coffee for exfoliation and neat appearance. Booyah! Crafters posted that it smells like freshly brewed coffee and always sells out at events. *crossing fingers that I’m as lucky*
To finish it off the two FOs they are sending are exciting scents that are more expensive than I will buy to check out (I actually keep my purchasing a bit frugal with the lower cost FOs or commonly on sale ones, and rarely spend a lot of money on a scent that might suck). I got “Romance in Bed” and “Twilight Woods for Men”. The woods one sounds like such a sexy blend with musk, spices, patchouli, cedar, and vetiver. *dreamy sigh* C’mon in, Sexy…Anyway, the romance one is suppose to be an “elegant, sensual scent” with florals, amber, and vanilla. I may have a new signature scent to wear. *grin* I suppose it is probably time for a more mature signature scent than rootbeer float. *laugh*
Anyway, the upcoming journey with these items should be quite fun and I look forward to sharing this with you. Happy Monday!
