Lately I have taken a real interest in aromatherapy. I have invested in several essential oils and have been making household, health and bath products. Its wonderful and healthy and natural and fun! I recently adventured to make my own lip balm. Not knowing if it would be a success or a total bomb that wasted a bunch of ingredients! Mr. Hubby and I were pleasantly surprised at how nice it is, it is soft but not greasy and feels really good, smells good, moisturizes and protects. If I get enough replies I might even share the recipe!!! Here is what they look like.
Of course, it made more than 5. I had 10 of these and the recipe could have filled 20 or so. So as a result I have one MEGA size lip balm because I had to find a container to put the rest of the recipe in! haha. Next time I will have actual lip balm tubes. I ordered them already, they were reallly cheap. I don't know why I didn't do that the first time! Live and learn I guess. These ones have a slight mint scent/taste but you can make it any scent/flavor you like really.
I really like some of the health remedies you can find recipes for too. I started this by looking up an illness in a health guide that we keep at home and it was recommending essential oils for certain remedies and also some home remedy teas. This perked my interest and I thought it was a great idea to know what things there are out there besides another bottle of 'crap' from the pharmacy. At least thats what it feels like at times. So, I am having fun experimenting and looking up information (there is still safety to consider).
