I decided to try making my own line of Aromatherapy products. I ordered some essential oils and bath/body bases. They came when I got home from school today. Very excited. After all the other things we had to do today, I opened that box and got started. I got five different oils, which I tried in various mixes until I had a few recipes I liked. Then, I got busy making stuff.
The shower gel is in my first scent, which is a fresh, earthy, invigorating blend of citrus and mint. I'm not spilling my secret recipes on here. I'm planning on selling my products as I get better at blending them. So far, so good.
The hand soap is in my second scent, which I'm calling my 'kids' scent. It's brighter, with a higher ratio of citrus to the other scents. I think it's a little mintier than I would like for hand soap, but Rebecca likes it. Next time, less mint.
The shampoo is actually a men's shampoo, with lower notes and only a tiny, tiny hint of the mint. We'll see tonight if Kevin likes it.
I dabbed on a bit of the oil mixture from the first one to see how I liked the scent, and I really love it. I think it's very promising as a perfume, but I'm not so sure about it as a soap. I'm trying it tonight, and I'll report back later.
