Winter Solstice Facial Cleansing Cream

This silky, slippy, honey and rose scented Winter Solstice Cleansing Cream is a positively divine way to gently cleanse your skin at the darkest, coldest time of year (if you’re in the southern hemisphere you might prefer this summer solstice themed formulation!). This cleanser is so mild that you can also use it as a lotion once you’re done cleansing (it’s a really lovely lotion!), and it’s as easy to make as any lotion. Let’s dive in!

Almond Oat Emulsified Body Butter

We’re continuing our Almond Oat theme today with this perfect-for-autumn Almond Oat Emulsified Body Butter ❤️ Silky almond oil and rich shea butter star in the oil phase, with moisturizing and soothing oaty goodness from colloidal oatmeal and hydrolyzed oat protein. This emulsified body butter is a happy medium between lighter emulsions, like lotions and creams, and heavier anhydrous products like body butters and balms. It’s perfect for the darker, cooler days that are setting in here in Calgary. Let’s get emulsified!

Rich Mocha Hand & Body Lotion

If you adore the combination of sweet, rich cocoa and intoxicating coffee, this Rich Mocha Body Lotion will be right up your alley ☕️ It stars gorgeous unrefined cocoa butter and espresso-coloured, ultra-fragrant coffee oil—you’ll be tempted to taste it, which I don’t recommend but would definitely understand! This formulation is a Bee-Bettering of a February 2015 project, incorporating lessons and some new ingredients from the intervening 6.5 years.

Almond Oat Natural Body Lotion

Today’s formulation is for a lightweight, silky, slippy, all-natural Almond Oat Natural Body Lotion! It smells softly of almonds and oats, is hydrating and moisturizing but not at all greasy, and if you make it as written you don’t need to adjust the pH (hooray!). The ingredient list is pretty short with just nine ingredients, and you can easily make it nut-free if you want to. Let’s get started!
