Lemon Cookie Lotion 1

This lotion is as fabulous as the scent! It is super yummy smelling. It makes me so hungry. This lotion is a great way to a foodies heart. I found the when the staff got a whiff of this one, they would pounce on me and seize my jar of lotion! My cat Leo, even agrees that this one is a winner. (You know that the cat likes the scent when he rubs himself all over you and even sleeps with the jar!) Come join me in the test kitchen while we make this dreamy lotion.

About Taylor

I'm a twenty something happy, animal loving, curious experimenter. I love reaching back into history and trying old recipes for cosmetics or foods. I'm constantly asking "Why?" My curiosity has me trying new things. I love taking walks with my dog as well as staying at home to cuddle with the dog and my cats. Some of my favorite scents include Hinoki Wood, Rose Garden, Jasmine and Gladiator.

    I just made some Lemon Poppyseed soaps this year for the first time. I hadn’t thought about making a whole line of products though! These are great!
