I make body scrubs, lotions, lip gloss, face wash, bath salts and treat boxes (cookies, fudge, choc covered goodies and such). It means more coming from the heart and a lot cheaper on the pocket book also. Homemade beauty products are a lot healthier for you then the expensive name brand store bought ones anyhow!! Happy holidays ladies Merry Christmas

How do you do lotions? This is my first year making the scrubs and such and I think I may keep it up and make my own throughout the year but never found any lotions!

I went all out for the many kids in the family but for the adults I am making refridgerator magnets with pics of my kids. I'm not very good at dealing out pics of them so i thought this would be a creative way to do it and they are display ready!!

I did several projects with the kids this year. they are 4 and 2 so not too much to do with both but I  did my best and they had fun. we made a chain countdown for Christmas (hoping to stop the "is it Christmas yet?" question but it hasn't lol. we are gonna make cookies for Santa on Xmas eve. and we made some snowmen and trees out of felt paper. The kids had fun and they love seeing their artwork around the livingroom with the store bought decorations.

So far I have made two outfits for Bianca's AG dolls. I am probably going to make a few more.

Home made lotion: 1/2 cup almond or olive oil (can infuse first w herbs if desired)
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup beeswax
Optional 1 tsp vitamin e oil
Optional 2 tbs Shea butter or cocoa butter
Optional essential oils, vanilla extract or other natural extract to suit your preference
Note: all ingredients and many essential oils are available at health store

Directions:
1. Combine all ingredients in a pint sized or larger glass jar. You can even reuse pickle or olive jar.
2. Fill in a medium saucepan with couple inches of water place over medium heat.
3. Put lid on jar loosely and place in the pan w water.
4. As the water heats, the ingredients in the jar will start to melt. Shake or stir occ. to incorporate. When all ingredients are complete melted pour into whatever jar or tin for storage... It will not pump well in lotion pump.
5. Use as you would regular lotion. This has a longer shelf life use within 6 months for best moisturizing benefits.
