My new MRH order arrived today and I am so excited! I can’t wait to get my hands (moisturized) dirty! My mother is visiting this weekend and I plan to take advantage of her presence in the house. As she and the hubby try to keep up with the very active Yipiyuk, I will be in the kitchen experimenting with ingredients. I will post the new recipes as soon as I have them all figured out.
Are you wondering what goodies I ordered? The goodies include:
- hemp seed oil
- evening primrose oil
- organic jojoba oil
- camelina oil (similar to flax but doesn’t go rancid as quickly)
- illipe butter
- kokum butter
- neem leaf powder (great for hair)
- and honeysuckle flower (to make tincture)
I will be combining some of these things with my shea butter, coconut oil, and aloe vera juice to make the conditioner and a new hair cream. I’m really excited. I will have to trial combining borax and carnauba wax to make an emulsifier for the conditioner. I plan to order lye from Essential Depot to make a shampoo bar. I update more when I receive the lye.
Update: I may not be using carnauba wax. It doesn’t seem to like me.
