Yesterday afternoon I spent several hours making a couple of batches of lotion. One of them was smaller bottles of Cranberry Bliss to include in our gift baskets. The other was Vita-Skin. Normally it doesn't take quite so long to make, but Dayna, being almost two, is extremely busy, loves to "help" and when she doesn't get to, she gets into everything else she can think of. So a lot of my time is spent going back and forth between whatever I'm working on, and getting her out of trouble.
This stuff is seriously magical. It has a nice, gentle, natural scent thanks to our essential oil blend of Palmarosa, Rosewood, and ylang-ylang. And we added vitamin E, vitamin B5, and Raspberry Seed Oil, each of which are really excellent for skin. If you want to learn more about it, just go to our website. It gets into more detail about each thing we add and what it can do for skin.
We have one customer that works at one of the shops that we have wholesale items in. She uses the Vita-Skin lotion like crazy! She says it's helped her when nothing else has. Her skin is now soft and silky smooth and she even says that it's helped with age spots on her arms. Of course, I can't prove that it does that part, but we certainly do appreciate such glowing testimonials!
One perk of making lotion is that it can get pretty messy and I get to slather it all over myself! I actually used to really hate making lotions. If you don't do everything just right, it might never get thick. And if you wait too long to pour it into the bottles, then it does get too thick and it's hard to shove it down the funnel. But with more practice, I've gotten much better with it. It's not so bad now.
