Evening friends!  Desolee for the long delay, holidaze, family in town and what not but its back to the grind, literally.  I’ve assembled the majority of ingredients for my cream.  Tomorrow, I will be purchasing a mortar and pestle, beeswax and rose petals.  I think that I will also have enough time to make my wash too, so I will be purchasing the ingredients for that.  Its crunch time, so expect a lot more posts over the coming days!

Hello people.  So some updates.  In the interest of time and quality, I’ve decided to focus on making the cream first.  If all goes well, I will follow with the wash.  I’ve also had to make some adjustments to the initial ingredients based on availability.  So far, I’ve assembled just about all of what I need to make the cream.  I’m still waiting on some stuff that I had to order.   Once everything arrives, I will do a wonderful photo shoot of all the assembled ingredients, provide descriptions for each one plus post the final recipe.  Sketches for the package design are coming soon as well!
