What’s in your cupboard? 7

I don’t know about you, but some days I look into my oil cabinet and I am utterly uninspired. And that can be a problem! I know that I want a lotion, or a soap or whatever it may be, I just don’t know how to get there without getting new oils to put in the cabinet.

I have a proposal for MMS Blog readers. If you ever have this trouble, email me. Tell me what you want to make, whether it is a lotion, soap, lip balm, massage oil, etc. Tell me what type of texture you are looking for be it light, thick, silky, velvety, or glossy.

I will do my best to create a formulation just for you!

These What’s in your cupboard series are great for inspiration, substitutions and copy-cat formulas so fire away! I am awaiting your messages eagerly!

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.

    How about a light silky, nourishing face cream for a senior citizen…..aka…..me. It’s warm here and my face cream is rather thick and heavy on my face. In fact, I put it on my face, blow dry my hair, and have to wipe half of it off my face because it feels just too heavy??? Since I’m still fairly new to making my own face cream (refuse to buy anymore) any help would be great!
    Thank You,

    Hello Taylor, I”m relatively new to MMS and thoroughly enjoy all your articles. Summer has just come to Toronto, Canada and it’s really steamy hot today – temperatures got as high at 30 celsius today.

    I’m thinking it would be nice to make either a spray lotion with some natural sunscreen protection, or perhaps a body lotion for use in a squeeze bottle, with some zinc oxide for better sun protection. In my cupboard, I do have sesame oil which I understand is a good oil for sun protection and I happen to have purchased some zinc last year for a product which I never tried.

    Thank you so much.

    Ditto what Janet said. I only dabble in lotions, but would love an unscented light, silky facial lotion that plays nice with zits. That’s not asking for the world, right?? 😛 Thanks for sharing formulation ideas – you always inspire me to experiment!

    Hi Taylor, I’m a quilter and I have lots of quilting friends. I would love a lotion that absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave my hands greasy so I can get back to quilting! None of us want to stain our fabric. I’d love any inspiration in this department! Thank you.

    I just wanted to say, take advantage of this people!!! They came up with an awesome lotion for dry, acne prone skin for my daughter. She loves it, and her roommates love it too! I had to make more, because they wanted to buy their own.
    I’m excited to see what they come up with for me!! 🙂
