Soothing Balm With a Purpose

Lise

I developed this balm for a couple of reasons.

  1. Creating excellence with a minimum of ingredients is my addiction

  2. I was asked to create a series of formulas for a specific purpose

  3. I love balms and cannot find a single reason not to make and use them for just about everything

Rosemary for Everything

Lise

Rosemary is such a fabulous plant I use it for numerous things. I’ve also been infusing it into numerous mediums because, well, it’s so multifunctional and it smells absolutely fabulous.

Pictured: a few stalks from a mature plant that are getting ready to become part of an oil infusion. The stalks have loads of scent and are quite suitable for oil infusion.

What can rosemary infusions be useful for? Depends on whet you infuse it in!

A rosemary glycerite is a great addition to a refreshing skin tonic

Rosemary-infused oil is a great addition to a hair and scalp oil, or an invigorating mask.

Rosemary-infused vinegar is fabulous as a hair rinse with no need of additional ingredients.

Alcohol infusion makes a rosemary tincture that can be added to scalp stimulating products or products for oily skin.

You can even infuse it into honey for an all natural cleanser. There’s a how-to right here on the main blog.

You Can Too

Want to make your own extracts and don’t know where to start? I’ve written a book that may help you decide what you want to try making first.

Lab Moments

Lise

Here’s a snapshot of a few things going on in the LisaLise lab. Infusions underway, note taking in progress, products being monitored and tested, and ingredients being catalogued. Those small (empty) glass bottles in the background are vintage apothecary and perfume bottles that were gifted to me by a dear friend. They’ve been patiently waiting in a box for me to move into this new space.

There’s loads of storage space and room enough for everything I need. To me, it’s a little slice of heaven. I considered putting labels on the ‘wall of drawers’ when I moved in, but it wasn’t more than a tick and a half before I could remember the contents of (almost) every drawer.

Thanks for stopping by!

Go Green For Real

Lise

If you’re going to go green, you might as well go all out and make it apparent in your products. Here’s a beautifully soothing non greasy balm that is free of preservatives and gets its luscious color from the natural oils it contains.

There are very few ingredients in it, and it is quite easy to make. It might even be fair to say this is a beginner friendly formula.

Curious to know more? Stick around and I’ll tell you more about it real soon.

Skincare From the Supermarket

Lise

This is a small batch of dried blackberries infusing. I’ve been working with different dried fruits (without additives) to see how they behave in different types of infusions. It’s not only interesting, but educational and inspirational work. The ‘leftovers’ even get used for different experimental uses (think exfoliants and the likes).

Most of these ingredients are sourced from my local supermarket or health food stores. This has more or less transformed my ‘normal’ grocery shopping into an ongoing expedition for new ingredients to try.

There is no such thing as just popping out to pick up something for dinner any more (much to the consternation of my husband when he accompanies me). Luckily, he enjoys the fruits of my labor (pun entirely intended).

Glycerite Season is Here

Lise

LisaLiseLAVGLYCERITE.jpg

That title is a bit misleading. In my book, glycerite season is pretty much year round, but when the warmer seasons approach, there is definitely a bigger selection of fresh materials to work with.

Pictured is a batch of lavender glycerite from last year. Just looking at this color makes me all excited about the coming lavender harvest.

Why?

Because my lovely friend who grows organic everything gifted me with a bucketful of fresh lavender last year, and she has promised me a fresh batch this year.

If you’re curious about making your own glycerites, I’ve written a book about it that you can get right here.
