A few thoughts for the first day of November
So what are you making for Christmas? I have quite a list going, but I know I'll have to pare it down to actually get half of it done. Share your thoughts and links because we're always up for great ideas!
Please don't try something you've never made a week before you want to give it. When it comes to bath and body products, giving things time is essential. And make sure you find good recipes that work well. Read comments and reviews before trying them!
Another aside...Just because something works for you, it doesn't mean it will work for other people. I'm thinking about both product creation and product usage.
This is why we follow the good manufacturing processes - look for the basic lotion making process in the list of ingredients or the FAQ. This ensures we all get good results from a recipe. We all have different hands - I might measure on the low side while you tend to go a bit high - but we can get basically similar results if we follow the same procedure. (Almost every product fail I am sent is due to a failure to heat and hold!)
For product usage, I'm thinking about recent comments I've seen about using baking soda as a cleanser and conditioner washing. If these methods work for you, that's great. But they will not work for everyone.
As an aside to the aside...I appreciate your passion for this topic, but I am growing weary of the rudeness. For the record, calling my blog "misguided ramblings", accusing me of "spreading misinformation", and calling me ignorant is rude. If I said these things about you, you wouldn't like it, so why do you think I might? Calling me defensive doesn't change your inconsiderate behaviour.
Things will be less busy around the Point of Interest household next week, and I have a ton of topics in mind as well as many many half finished posts. Enough from me...Have a great November 1st!
A quick update: I really hope this post didn't come across as fishing for compliments! I really appreciate your very very kind words. I'm a bit overwhelmed by your wonderful comments! Thank you!
