Strange .. I had so much fun in the kitchen. Used all natural organic ingredients and made all sorts of Milk Bathes, Tea Salts, Foot Soaks, and ground up ingredients for making soaps next week. Tomorrow I will make ground spices for natural colorant and ground coconut shells, avocado skins, dried lemon peel, dry spinach/grind, dry and puree some of the pumpkins on the porch (makes orange)
and pair that with some clove, ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon and you have a spiced bath bar or soak.
I've been snipping and clipping and drying herbs and flowers all year waiting to make stuff again. I'm going to try a new to me cold process recipe for soap can't wait to post pics and hoping not to fail.
I so wish I could have smell-o-vision with this stuff.
Tahitian Honey Almond Milk Bath .... I toasted almonds and rolled oats tonight smells really nice and has a nice creamy color soft to the touch. Great for Sensitive Skin and super moisturizing in the winter. Used Raw Honey Powder and Tahitian Vanilla Bean Powder ...
Spicy Chi Bath Tea - Great aroma!! Black Tea, Ginger, Clove, Black Pepper Vanilla Bean, a few other goodies ... Boosts skin emollients.
Sweet Toasted Ginger Milk Bath - Ginger toasted with a mix of spices and organic brown sugar, poppy seed and Milk
Chamomile Bath Salts - Totally relaxing
I made a bunch of other stuff ... I figure I"ll take some pictures when I get my muslin bags in. I have these fabric markers to do these cool designs Zoe thought up on the bags.
Can't wait to make soap. They probably think I'm nuts or something at the hardware store as I just ordered 2lbs of lye today.
I'm making infused oils for the soaps to cut down the one large batch to smaller batches. I've got some ideas for what to mix together to do different skin types and like acne bars ... if you just get the acidity just right which if you measure proper. And I bought a really nice scale too. Told ya I'm going a little crazy. I'm even gonna make this hair mud because I so need it.
Can't ya tell I'm having fun!!!
