I feel super-bad about not being very present with my beloved Veggiewitch Blog. I’ve been tied-up with: moving my Mama into her suite (which is awesome, by the way, and she is settling-in nicely); looking for a bigger house for us all to live comfortably (which we have also found, and, barring any unforeseen circumstances, we will likely move into in January 2013); Homeschooling my Elflings (grades 3 and 9 FTW!); trying to honour my daily posting challenge on Mouldylocks (365 Days of Awesome is harder than I thought!); and I’ve also managed a little bit of crafting for my “witchy” little business (diversification with a kinder, gentler, vegan-friendly edge). The following are a few spoilers for things I’ll add to my shop on Etsy, Veggiewitch Designs.
I was getting frustrated with the number of lovely lip balm options that I just didn’t want because of beeswax in them, so this is my interpretation. Pretty simple, really, but it has no beeswax at all, and hasn’t been tested on any animals… other than myself and my Elflings. ♥
I got some really great feedback on my cream deodorant. Thank you to everyone who participated in the trials. As a result, I have perfected and finalized the formula, which is now totally stable and completely minimizes the amount of waste (no more stirring!) in the prototype. As well, I have a roll-on version, which many prefer for it’s ease and mess-free application.
This body butter is something I’ve been playing around with for a bit. Our skin gets so dried-out here, especially in the Winter (super-cold, forced-air furnace, dry climate…), and I wanted something that would work and last. This is it! A little goes a lo-ooooo-ong way.
