I especially like that this bottle has a treatment pump making it easy to dispense with little or no wastage. A little goes a long way so this bottle should last you ages.

Calendula and Camwood Baby Lotion

Calendula and Camwood Baby lotion. Not a great picture... Couldn't get the light right!

This Camwood and Calendula lotion in my mind is a fusion of traditional healing herbs used often for babies. I have made oil infusions of both herbs in the past to use as body and hair oil, as well as in lip balm and other anhydrous body balms.

For this lotion I used a tea of both herbs with Calendula infused sweet almond oil. I like sweet almond oil for baby lotion because it’s a very light oil and it absorbs easily with no greasy feeling.  This lotion keeps skin looking and feeling moisturized with no residue left on the skin.  Of course I kept a small tub for my own use 😀

Luxe Jojoba Argan Hair Conditioner

Conditioner has been on my to do list for a while. The process is similar to making lotion: water+oils+emulsifier. The main difference  however is the type of emulsifier used in conditioner. For want of a better explanation, the emulsifier used to make conditioner is a…. Conditioning emulsifier 🙂 I used BTMS25.

I used jojoba, argan and castor oils in this recipe together with essential oils of rosemary and tea tree so in my opinion, that’s luxurious hair and scalp loving conditioner.

Jojoba Argan luxurious hair conditioner

This conditioner can be used as a daily leave-in as well as regular wash off conditioner. I would still allow it sit in the hair for a few minutes before rinsing off. 

Black Raspberry and Vanilla fragrance

I used to be part of a very active soapmaking forum and a fragrance which everybody agreed is a perennial bestseller is this BRV fragrance which I believe was made popular by the company Bath and Bodyworks in America.

Blackberries

I eventually ordered a sample bottle to see what all the fuss is all about and all I can say is that I didn’t waste time in ordering a large 16oz bottle.

The seller describes their own version of this popular fragrance as an enticing blend of blackberries and raspberries, with middle notes of white floral greenery, and bottom notes of musk and vanilla. All these words mean nothing to me (well, except musk and vanilla) but now I know together they mean amazing ❤ . 

It smells good in just about everything but my favourite is in leave on products like lotion and fine mist body spray. Yum!
