This coming weekend I will be traveling to West Virginia, where the Kirkwood Winery will be hosting their annual Wine Festival. I just completed some lotion bars and a new lip balm to take, but I still have to design labels (the fried computer is still holding all my files hostage! lol) and of course I also have packing to complete. I think I will stay bust the next few days, don't you?
I made three different types of lotion bars. When I say different types, I mean that there are three different recipes. I made a Silky Lotion Bar in Spiced Lavender, Embrace and Sugared Chestnuts. The Silky bar has jojoba and avocado oils, along with shea butter and other ingredients. Then I made Embrace and Exotic Orange in my Luxury Lotion Bar recipe, which truly lives up to its name. Among other ingredients, it is comprised of jojoba and hemp oils, along with shea and cocoa butters. Then, the final lotion bar was made from Monoi de Tahiti, a rather exquisite (and quite expensive) specialty oil from Tahiti. [To read about this oil, please see this past post]. While some were made into actual bars, I also poured some into twist up containers (a la deodorant type tubes). My entire house smells so wonderful right now, it was quite pleasurable to leave and walk back in! Lol
As for the newest lip balm, it is made with coffee butter and really has a pungent coffee scent. Although Miss, "you aren't supposed to lick your lips" hates to admit it, it really does have a strong coffee flavor as well. In addition to these newly created products, I have also been stocking up on foot and bath soaks, along with all the other regular items.
Speaking of regular items, as I was making a list of labels that needed to be printed, I realized that I have quite a large variety of soap scents. Probably too many..... but here is what I will be taking to the Wine Festival.
