Well, that was successful!
I made two jars of Virgin’s Milk which are cooling in the fridge and I will be testing it out this week with my friend and psychic medium, Kathy Baker.
Benzoin is also known as “Friar’s Balsam” and is an ancient antiseptic made from resin, much like Frankincense.
Benzoin also smells heavenly, and is used in a lot of perfumes as a vanilla based note in the Poudre family (my favourite!).
Rose water should be in everyone’s cabinet not just for making Lassi (a yoghurt drink from India) but also for using as a facial toner; and if you every get a tattoo or two, I swear by regular cleansing with pure rose water for 8 weeks or longer, because it hydrates the skin whilst also promoting healing.
Coco butter smells (and tastes) like chocolate of course, but I’m sure I shouldn’t be licking the spoon in this instance!
I’ve just applied the bowl dregs to my arms, legs and face, and it’s feeling good; I have very oily skin naturally, but somehow, it’s absorbed it all straight away, this bodes well!
A quick calculation shows me it costs $16 in raw ingredients to make one jar, so if you would like to place an order I will be charging $33 per jar to cover ingredients, time and postage.
Here’s to fair complexions!
