The good people of SFetsy let me share a tutorial on making a moisturizing skin soother, which I use for everything. It’s made of such pure and awesome base materials that I tend to use it for cuticle cream, lip balm, hand salve, and even massage oil. Jump on over to their blog to get the full recipe and directions. Why might you want to make your own bath products? Here’s more info on commercial body products and how they affect us and here’s my little spiel on plastics. DIY home and body products will substantially cut down on use of poorly regulated and super dangerous and/or wasteful/toxic substances and disposable packaging, and will also be a fantastic first step in taking back our independence from mega monopolies.
