In The Begining...

Day one in the blogging world!! I'm a married, SAHM to two wonderful boys ages 3 1/2 & 2. They keep me busy! I love photography & digital editing. I'm a lover of crafts and art and food and more. I love babies and weddings! These are my rants & raves! Enjoy!

Today I invited my new friend Jennifer over to to make some lotions. Ordered all my supplies from Saffireblue. Its a Canadian company in London Ontario. Last year I first tried them for a fun christmas gift idea and fell in love! They feel sooo great on your skin! And i find it very cool to pour the water in the oil and 'voila!' LOTION!

Whipped Body Butter

100g coconut oil
80g Macadamia nut oil
30g Sweet almond oil
50g Shea Butter
110g Emusifying wax
20g steric acid
800g distilled water, warmed

Heat all but the water in a double boiler until melted & blended. Beat with an electric mixer & SLOWLY add warm water. Let cool for 15 minutes in the fridge. Add essencial oils if you like, and your preservitive. Whip to blend and trasfer to jars.
