I spend a lot on skincare because good ingredients and nice smell is all I strive for. I was meaning to create my own skincare products - lotions and butters - but I could never get good ingredients. Also, there not much motivation to be precise.
But, after knowing that Lush is going to shut down, I need to speed up on my DIY projects.
I also discovered a great Ebay seller to source Beeswax, Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter at affordable price.
So, I started with making these lotion bars which majorly contains beeswax mixed with shea butter, a bit of organic coconut oil and few drops of orange essential oil.
These turned out great but needed to be a bit more buttery.
So, I melted them and added more coconut oil.
Now, they are perfect but, I won't have mind a little more butterly texture. Maybe more oil next time.
Little Dinosaurs! Walking on Earth...
And a failed attempt....
I tried to make a lotion with Green Tea and Aloe Vera with Shea Butter. But, I could not blend them properly. I will use a electric blender next time for the same.
I still need to tweak my recipes to make them perfect. When they are at least somewhere near perfect, I will share with you so that you can make them as easily as possible.
I will share complete details of the seller soon.
Wish me luck for my future endeavors...
