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.

Summer Strawberries For the Nose

Lise

In the dead of winter it is often a real mood lifter to recreate a bit of summer in the lab. Right now I’m working on a few infusions and this one popped right up on my to do list when I came across organic slow-dried strawberries.

To make it a real challenge, these were popped into a jar of vinegar. Stay tuned to the main blog (LisaLiseBlog.com) to see the outcome.

Afterburn Lip Balm

When I tested this lip balm with my own handcrafted chili-infused oil for the first time, I expected to feel like my lips were on fire, but there was no immediate heat.

Instead, it crept up quite slowly and increased in strength until there was no question in my mind: this lip balm was destined to be named Afterburn.

This lip balm is 100% plant-based - even the color - which is the result of a combination of oils infused with Turkish Paprika and Chili Peppers.

Are you signed up for my newsletter? Cool, cuz then you can look forward to an adaptable balm formula with chili-infused oil. Want to sign up? Excellent! Visit this page to join the upcoming chili-balm fun!

Coffee Scrub Ingredients

Lise

Coffee beans can quickly become a great addition to an exfoliating scrub by simply grinding the roasted (unused) beans and adding them to your body scrub.

Pair the grounds with salt, sugar or another dissolving exfoliating ingredient to keep staining at a minimum.

Pictured here: a paste of coffee grounds and sweet almond oil. This is the remains of an infusion I made to make a decadently scented coffee and brown sugar exfoliating body scrub as an extra little gift for a steady client.

Preservative Free Aqueous Lip Stain

Lise

Here’s a fun little exercise in Hurdle Technology that has turned out quite successfully in the first few batches: a plant-based aqueous lip stain with adequate color that is preservative free.

If you can recognize the dried plants at the top, are, you’ll know what one of the components are.

Testing is still ongoing, but I will reveal this: not only does this lip stain moisturize well, it even tastes good.
