What haven't I made yet? I'll tell you what I have made! I've made soap, salt bars, solid shampoo and conditioner, salt scrubs, sugar scrubs, solid scrubs, liquid shampoo, liquid conditioner, solid lotion bars, solid perfumes, liquid perfumes, lip balms, bath oils, bath fizzies, bath melts, CP and HP shampoo bars, lotions, creams, shaving creams, shaving soap.....oh my gosh! I had ingredients everywhere!!!!
It feels good knowing I can make all of that, but in the end, realized I needed to scale back on the ingredients I purchased and the products I made. It's hard not to want to try everything. If I'm on a forum and see that somebody made something cool it makes me want to make it too! But now I will just appreciate what others make and concentrate on what I want to make. It also gives me a reason to start buying more products from all of the wonderful bath and body experts out there!
I will always love to make all forms of soap. That will never go away. By taking a step back, since moving here, I've been able to appreciate different soaps and their qualities....to really find out what I like in my soap. Creaminess! I crave creaminess and silkiness. Turns out I already knew that, but it was nice to move half way across the country and come to the same conclusion. Cocoa butter is now my new best friend. I will be using it in almost everything now. I go back and forth on my favorite butters....a few months ago it was mango, but right now it's cocoa butter.

I will always fight the urge to make anything and everything, but for now I will slow it down. I am going to focus on a few products and make them as yummy as I can.
I think my brain is done for now. The sun is shining and calling me outside. I am addicted to the sun. It gives me energy and makes me happy.
I hope everyone has a sunny day!
