Pemberley Hand Lotion

I’m really excited to share this formula with you guys—this Pemberley Hand Lotion was my Formula Botanica final project, and I received a mark of 100% for it! The project was to create a product for a specific customer. I designed this gorgeous hand lotion for professional women, aged 30–40, who work in an office setting. It had to be ultra hydrating but also super fast absorbing so the user wouldn’t leave greasy fingerprints on papers or touch screens. The scent had to be soft as heavily perfumed products are frowned upon in office settings, but I also wanted it to be luxurious and pleasing to give the user a bit of a sensory break from their busy day. This is what I came up with!

Mango Mango Massage Butter

This beautiful Mango Mango Massage Butter is a combination of a few things that are on my mind these days. Thing #1: I’d really like it to be warm outside, and the smell of mangoes helps transport me to beaches and last year’s trip to Australia. Thing #2: I really like massages and was out of my coconut massage butter. Thing #3: I am so in love with this natural mango fragrance oil that I want everything to smell like mangoes all the time. Anyhow, I hope you love this hit of skin-loving mango goodness as much as I do!

Rose Aloe Body Cream

Today’s recipe is for a rich, fragrant body cream designed to soothe, soften, and hydrate dry and irritated winter skin. It is super thick and creamy (definitely not pumpable!), making it incredibly decadent to use. You’ll scoop up a silky dollop of this Rose Aloe Body Cream with your fingers and massage it into your skin. You will instantly notice the rich rose scent and the rich-but-not greasy consistency. As it absorbs it leaves your skin is soft, velvety, and super hydrated. This cream is just the thing for a bit of post-bath pampering on a cold winter night—I hope you love it as much as I do!

Soothing Foaming Hand Wash

Today we’re continuing our “soothing” series with a super-simple Soothing Foaming Hand Wash. I wanted to be sure to include a hand wash in this series because our hands take a ton of abuse in the winter. Frequent hand washing is great for preventing the spread of the cold and flu, but it’s also great for drying out hands, leaving them feeling tight and irritated (or worse—cracked and bleeding). This hand wash features a gentle blend of surfactants and some soothing ingredients to help you keep your hands clean and happy as we seem to inch towards peak winter dryness.

Mango Mango Body Butter

If you love mangoes, brace yourself—this new series will have your mouth watering and your skin feeling all kinds of mango-themed love. This creamy, dry-touch-finish body butter smells so much like mangoes (naturally!) that your mouth will start to water. The oil and butter blend comes together to create a body butter that melts easily when massaged into the skin and vanishes without even a hint of greasiness. Add in a cheery orange colour and we’re off to the races with this beautiful Mango Mango Body Butter!

Indigo Lagoon Balm

This rich blue balm is a DIY version of a very popular and very expensive shop-bought balm. This particular balm is known for its striking dark blue hue that comes from a hefty dose of expensive blue tansy essential oil. I’ve created a more budget friendly version you can make at home with some lovely butters, silky oils, and gorgeous essential oils. It smells divine, has a delightful melty consistency, and can be easily tweaked to suit what you’ve got at home.
