Information and Recipes to Create Your Own Bath and Body Products In Your Very Own Kitchen!
Monday, October 20, 2014
On Saturday I was teaching a scrubs class through Redwood City Parks and Rec and I used up most of my grapeseed oil for one project. I happened to go to Lucky's on Woodside Road and found that they sell the same brand (Pompeian) that I happened to use in the class. It was great it was on sale so I purchased a bottle for my lotions class for next month. But I was really surprised to find that they sold coconut oil in a bottle. I am so use to seeing it in a jar so I was happy to see it in the form. Since it was on sale I decided to buy it and try it in my lotions class next month. For any of those who have taken a class and wanted to try coconut oil, try your local Lucky store and see if they have it.
I have a B.A. in Mass Communication and took my first melt and pour soapmaking class in 2002. Since then I got hooked making my own bath and products. I have taken various courses in Soapmaking (Melt & Pour, Cold Process, Hot Process), lotion making (lotions, creams, lotion sticks), bath products (bath salts, body scrubs), body products (lip balm, body butters, body balms, whipped butters) and more. Most of all of my classes were taught by Lori Nova of The Nova Studio in Point Richmond, Ca. I have taught courses since 2004 at various locations. I have worked as an Event Coordinator at Michaels Redwood City.
