I'm working on what seems like a metric tonne of projects right now, including the decyl glucoside recipes, the comparisons of esters and silicones, a lip balm guide, and some chemistry posts. You'll see the fruits of that labour and more later this week and over the next few weeks.
I've just created what I consider to be a great and easy toner for my newly diagnosed rosacea (not a treatment, but a nice feeling product for my face!). 20% each peppermint hydrosol and aloe vera, 28% each chamomile hydrosol and witch hazel, 2% each panthenol and hydrolyzed oat protein, and 0.5% liquid Germall plus. I'm finding it feels cooling on my skin when my face goes red and it's soothing when I start feeling too warm as the temperature gets closer to 30C outside. It's very like my cooling spray, but I am enjoying the peppermint hydrosol over the essential oil on my face.
I better run so I can do some last minute revising. In the meantime, here are a few pictures for you. The first is my caffeine molecule embroidery project. We enjoyed embroidery at craft group Thursday. The second was the tiny bottles class, taught by Desiree, where we made these adorable potion bottles for jewellery! And the third is of the henna group from last week where we all learned how to decorate ourselves!
