So what do I do with all that wax?
Lotion anyone? Solid massage bar anyone?
I got on You Tube and Pinterest. I watched videos, read recipes.
I had some silicon chocolate molds, and cupcake trays.
And here is batch number 2.
The heart is a skin- tightening, coffee, mocha heart. It has Beeswax, honey, Shea butter, sweet almond oil, coffee, cocoa powder, and a splash of vitamin E. It is designed to be used pre-shower, so you can rinse off the caffeine and cocoa powder. You could eat it, if you didn’t mind the fresh ground coffee beans.
The Dragon Fly is a Lemon-Rosemary lotion bar with Beeswax, Shea butter, sweet almond oil, Lemon essential oil and Rosemary leaves and flowers. It is also designed for use pre-shower.
The wax and oils melt with the heat of the skin. It is an indulgence for relaxation and enjoyment.
They are being testing next week by my focus group (Guinea pig, God Bless them) friends who put up with my shenanigans, and indulge me as I learn.
If someone had told me 2 years ago that I wouldn’t be traveling, employed, or in the mortgage industry anymore….I would have told them they were stupid.
Now I’m using my good LeCruset to make lotion bars. I’m considering an etsy shop. I’m seriously looking to market what I have learned in the last 12 months. If this just keeps my fingers busy and makes my friends and me happy….I think it would be good. Who knows.
