After finishing the floor adventure The Mister and I decided to take a few days off before we tackle the molding and the rest of the finishing work. I thought I would make use of my time off by cooking up some lotion bars and a small tub of body butter. It's been so dry that like Pup, I've been an itchy mess.
It all started well enough. I had what I needed to make some mild, unscented potions.
I always tell beginners to start here. All you have to do is melt some things and pour it into a mold.
It wasn't so easy yesterday because when I went to remove the hot jars that I use for melting from the old crockpot I dropped one of them back into the water and the concoction went everywhere.
It was not only a mess in the crockpot and on the table, it was a mess on the jars that I had just cleaned and sterilized. Getting wax off of anything is no fun at all. I've got a lot of melting to do.
I did salvage enough for four lotion bars-which hopefully is enough to cure my itch.
