Due to the discovery of new allergies that I didn’t know I had, it prompted a friend and I to make some DIY body products and laundry detergent. I then decided to make them into a sort of “recipe book” for my children to use, as I have some adult daughters. It was fun making them, and we only made a moderate mess. The ingredients cost a LOT more than I expected, but given more time ….. I think that I could have found some better deals. Today, I made sugar scrubs (not pictured,) whipped body butter, lotion bars, and lip balms. In 20 minutes, I made 3 double recipes and put them in jars. I found good deals on jars at Hobby Lobby when the glass is half off, and I ordered some of them on Amazon.com.
We used some silicone molds to shape the lotion bars into shapes. It was a fun day.
