Last month I went to a class all about bath soaks,scrubs and cremes and it only fed my obsession with making things myself that are easily purchased. Now I can't stop making body care products. I scrub my hands with olive oil-sea salt-citrus scrub and soak in lavender-clove Epsom salts. I've mixed up homemade mouthwash, lip balm and deodorant. And now I've made my own potion.
By potion, I mean lotion. That's just what my family calls it. This isn't just any potion, though. It's Rosemary-Mint Body Butter. It's filled with fair trade shea butter, cocoa butter, organic coconut oil and evening primrose oil. And it's all whipped up in a blender until it looks like the most amazing butter cream frosting you've ever seen. I almost want to eat it (Hannah Dog DID eat some).
The sad thing is that I can't share the recipe because I didn't write it and it belongs to the teacher of the class...But if I tweak it next time and make the recipe my own, then I'll share! If you want to take the class, though, she's teaching at Linden Hills Co-op tomorrow and next week- Here's the schedule.
For now, I'm set with enough potion to last me a while, even in this horribly dry, cold weather.
