Make Something Fabulous

Lise

makesomethingfab.jpg

There is a thriving community of artisan cosmetics makers who are also handcrafting and using their own extracts in both skin and haircare products. With the many possibilities botanical ingredients offer along with the range of solvents to choose from, it’s no wonder the age old practices of capturing the power of plants are seeing a renewed interest with the green beauty revolution generation.

Instagram seems to be the place to be for sharing creative ideas and products of this type – the inspiration is positively addictive! If you’re on Instagram and making extracts for your cosmetics, please feel free to tag me (@lisaliseskincare) and show me what you’re working on!

Thank you for sharing the passion!

The All Natural Deodorant Plant

Lise

J-cleavers.jpg

This is an amazing little slice of nature. Not only do these herbs grow wild around the globe, but they provide numerous other benefits. Cleavers (Galium aparine) are useful in several ways. The fruits (those round growths you see up there) can be dried, roasted and used to make a drink that is quite similar to coffee - complete with natural content of caffeine.

Among many other benefits, Cleavers is said to even offer anti-aging properties. And although the anti-aging bit has my interest, it is the all-natural deodorizing capabilities of this humble herb that has captured my full attention.

If you’re interested in learning more about cleavers (and the numerous other wonderful herbs and plants that surround us and provide health benefits), visit Medical Herbalist Vivienne Campbell at The Herbal Hub.

And if you want to try making your own all-natural and preservative-free deodorant with cleavers, there are 3 different formulas to choose from in this E-book. They are pictured below to the right of the book.

No Soap Cleansing - A Different Solution

Lise

Ever since I developed and started blogging about my no soap cleansing bars several years ago, the idea has caught on and spread around the globe. It has been a thrill to see how many people have taken to the concept of no soap facial cleansing. The many comments and emails I have received from people who have tried my formulas have not only warmed my heart, but confirmed to me that no soap cleansing works.

The idea of cleansing the face without soap may seem odd, but for many folks with sensitive, troubled, dry or mature skin, it seems to be a very effective and gentle solution.

If you want to give a single formula a try, there’s one in the shop for a very modest price.

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.

This Deodorant is 100% Botanical, Preservative Free, and You Can Make it Yourself

Lise

THIS-IS-WHAT-4.jpg

The formula for this and 2 additional botanical deodorants are in my book Make Your Own Preservative Free Cosmetics With 21 Ingredients (yes, I know it’s a long title but it was hard to explain the entire contents with fewer words).

Even though they are all preservative free, these deodorants have a shelf life of about 6 months. Pictured is the peppermint version. One of the ingredients in this peppermint deodorant is a handcrafted tincture with peppermint. Although you can use both dried and fresh plants to make the infusion, a clear liquid with a proper punch of peppermint is best achieved by using fresh peppermint leaves.

My own test team were happy with how long they worked (between 8 and 16 hours), and since the book was published, I’ve been getting feedback from folks who have started making and using these deodorants. I’m happy to say the feedback has been mostly positive. Of course I would have loved to tell you these deodorants work for every single person on the planet, but then, I don’t think any company can pride themselves in having a deodorant that fits that bill.

Meantime, I appreciate all of the feedback you have given me, and please feel free to keep it coming.

If you want to try making these deodorants, the formulas are available in this book.

Deodorant for Purists

Lise

LisaLisePURISTdeo.jpg

This is a shot of product development that took place much of last year while working on the book of Preservative Free Cosmetics.

Creating a 100% botanical deodorant that both worked all day and had a long shelf life and no preservatives was a pretty tall order, but one of the most interesting challenges I have ever set myself.

I’m happy to say i succeeded. There are 3 formulas for this deodorant for purists in the book.
