Since then I married the most wonderful man in the world (the one making the ribs!), have written 571 posts (including this one, for a total of 585 so far), made litre after litre of lotions, hair care products, facial care products, and body washes, and made stacks of containers of mineral make-up products stretching from floor to ceiling. I've taught more classes than I can count (and am, in fact, planning to spend the day at Rated T for Teen playing Rock Band at the library!) and I've learned more than I could have imagined.

So we have the food, but what's a celebration without presents? Now I know my adorable Blondie dog would ask for bacon, but that's not really a bath & body kind of thing, so how about a few downloads? (She does, however, love butter, but again, not so much a bath & body kind of thing!)
Polyphenols - information about the polyphenols we find in extracts and oils!
Rosemary extract - information about the various extracts, as well as formulating ideas and recipes for hair and skin care products!

Thank you, my wonderful readers, for all your questions, feedback, and challenges. Thank you for encouraging me and encouraging each other to try new things, formulate awesome creations, and learn more about the ingredients we use and the products we make so we can become even more incredible bath & body makers. It has been a wonderful year!
