Well, that was June…

I can’t be the only one who’s gobsmacked that we’re halfway through the year? The days are already getting shorter and I’ve started thinking about Christmas specials – and all this before the summer holidays officially begin 😱

At the beginning of the month I posted some goals for June – here’s how I got on…

1. Research, and make some test batches of, lip balm  ✅ After a bit of research I came up with a few recipes that I wanted to try, and made up a first batch:

Lip balm freshly poured

Finished Lip Balm

I already love this one, but I’m only keeping one for myself – the rest are going out to testers.  I still have a couple of recipes to try.

2. Finish making the summer specials  ✅ I’m considering keeping one of them – ‘Yr Wyddfa’ – all year round as I think it’ll be pretty popular, living as we do at the foot of said mountain!

3. Create a ‘Core Range’ post for bathbombs  ✅ This link is proving so handy to send out to potential stockists!

4. Post at least nine times here on the blog – oh so close! Still, I posted 8 times, and if I’d got my backside into gear and posted this on Friday night like I should have, I would have hit my target.

Not bad going eh? Thanks for reading 😊 back soon!

  1. Which recipe did you try for the lip balm????? I love just three ingredients (cocoa butter, coconut oil and beeswax) but I have a wicked soft spot for adding jojoba or sweet almond oil… the way it feels as you put it on? Swoon! Can’t wait for you to begin playing with colourings in your lippies!!!

    1. This one was beeswax, shea butter and avocado oil – my skin tends to find coconut oil a tad drying – and it’s so nice. Need to try some other recipes for comparison though.

      1. I’m not a big fan of shea butter in my lippies as I find I get those fugly white crusties on the side of my mouth from shea in lip products.

        For me, I use coconut oil in my lippies as it melts on contact with skin so provides a wicked high shine.

        Try mango butter. Oh yeah. Mango butter.

  2. Not bad at all! Great progress!
