Thyme & Witch Hazel Facial Bar DIY
Photo by Jan Berry
Here is a really intriguing facial bar recipe that appears on The Soap Queen's website. It is called Thyme & Witch Hazel Facial Bar and it is written by Jan Berry. What is interesting about this recipe is that the distilled water is infused with thyme and that witch hazel and honey are combined and added at the time of trace. According to The Soap Queen she was told to avoid adding witch hazel to cold process soap. Her thought was that the alcohol content in the witch hazel would react poorly. So it may work after all.
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.
