I became inspired this weekend while visiting a new friend. She makes her own face creams using recipes from the book Organic Body Care Recipes, and supplies from Mountain Rose Herbs. So I've ordered the book and am putting together my shopping cart - can't wait to start concocting! Hey, it involves cooking, good smells, and will save me tons of money. I've already started with a cleanser and exfoliator that's just ground almonds (almond meal) and a dab of yogurt. Things I always have on hand and it works great. Next, on to a cocoa butter lotion with sweet orange oil. Really need the moisture in this cold climate!
