Round One of the lip balms: lemon/mint and lemon/lavender
Christmas, yet finances are tight: how about making some home-made goodies?
Tom and I made an assortment of body care products last night. Lip balms, hand balms, bath scrubs. We infused a few of our herbs (rosemary, mint, lavender) but otherwise everything else was purchased and then made in our kitchen, mad-scientist style. I am kind of a hand-balm, lip-balm fool, and Tom definitely leans metrosexual, that is if you can lean that way and live on a farm…so, this was an enjoyable exercise. You can make all these things too; it’s actually pretty fun. I like the fact that these things are all natural, all are even edible; no petroleum products or other unpronounceable chemicals here.
(And if you’re the recipient of these things and I am ruining your Christmas day surprise, well…still act surprised, okay?)
