This is amazing! Thank you for sharing your secret recipe! I just started my soapmaking adventures, I do want to branch out into homemade lotions as well! You are my inspiration
Aw that’s great! You will quickly find out – it is an ADDICTIVE hobby! I find myself driving down the road, brainstorming new soap ideas all the time. I hope you have a wonderful time creating your own products and I really hope you blog about it!
First, I think you are an amazing young woman Jan. Love reading your post and all the fun you have with your nieces. A lot of them are in Junior church.
I would like to purchase this face cream, some of your soap and the healing lip balm. It would not have to be shipped as I live in Madison Heights and go to Temple. I could meet you when you were coming into town or Angie or someone could bring you the money and return the products to me. E-mail me and let me know if this is possible. Thanks!
Hi Mrs. Jennings! Thank you for the very kind words. That is definitely possible – I have a fresh jar right here from the batch I made yesterday for someone. I have a part time job, so have to dash off to work, but will email you this evening when I get home. Thank you again!
Wow! This really does look luxurious! Thanks for sharing your recipe and for linking up at Tiny Tip Tuesday! It’s not everyday someone offers for free, a product they would have otherwise sold. That’s just awesome
Hi Sarah, It’s a wonderfully rich cream and a lot of fun to make! Thanks for stopping by and letting me link up at Tiny Tip Tuesday!
Please offer this at your store!! Love that you use quality ingredients. Let me know if you decide to…with 3 young ones it’s unlikely I’ll be able to make this anytime soon…but my skin would love it!
Hi Raj, I’ve had a few people ask about this and am definitely open to the idea of a trial run of offering this in my store. It will probably be a week or so, since I am waiting on a shipment of supplies, but I will let you know!
Hi Raj! I am carrying this now but I also have a current giveaway going on where the winner gets to pick one thing they’d like from the store. You might want to check it out! http://thenerdyfarmwife.com/new-pick-your-own-giveaway-in-progress/
Would really love to make this…eventually Until I obtain the ingredients though, I am very interested in purchasing this from your store when you offer it.
I hope you do get to make it eventually; it’s so much fun personalizing a recipe! But, I definitely will try offering it in the store in a week or two. Waiting on some more goodies from Mountain Rose…
Hello Robin! I’m carrying Blue Chamomile Face Cream in the store now, but I also have a current giveaway going on where the winner gets to pick any one thing they’d like from my shop. You might want to check it out! http://thenerdyfarmwife.com/new-pick-your-own-giveaway-in-progress/
This looks so nice and soothing! Thanks so much for linking up with my Super Link Party!
Thanks for letting me link up! You have some of the cutest ideas on your blog. REALLY makes me want to learn to crochet!
I can just imagine how wonderful this must smell. I’m beginning to experiment a bit with homemade products and it is becoming addictive.
It really is addictive! I find myself randomly thinking of soap ideas all the time!
Wow this is very interesting I think it would smell wonderful. B
Yes, and you can adjust the oils for more scent. My mom likes it when I use rose water & rose essential oil in it.
HI! I’d like to make this, but not sure I want to use Borax… Have you figured out how to replace it with stearic acid? And if so, how much would you use? Thanks for sharing!
Hi Aldana! I have yet to try it with the stearic acid, but all of my family members have ran out of their supply and are starting to ask for more, so I’m going to have to very soon! When I do try it, I thought I’d add a teaspoon or two of the stearic acid (let it melt along with the beeswax,) see how everyone likes the texture, then adjust from there since that’s something of an educated guess from looking at other recipes containing stearic acid. I’d rather under-do than over-do since too much leaves a waxy feeling on the skin. I’ll be sure to update this post with the amount I use, when I do! (which will probably be sometime this week or next)
Great! Thank you!!
Hi Aldana! I updated the recipe using stearic acid with this post: http://thenerdyfarmwife.com/blue-chamomile-cream-updated-version/
