About Homemaid Expressions:
My soap making adventure began two years ago when our fridge was overflowing with milk from our 2 Nubian dairy goats, Annabell & Josephine. I thought it would be fun to try making soap so I began by reading anything I could find on the subject of goat milk soap. There was so-o much to learn! Where is the best place to purchase ingredients? What should I use for molds? How should I cut and wrap my soap? How long does it need to cure? Should I try to market my soap, make it just for fun-or both? :-) Once my curiosity was satisfied, I set out to purchase the ingredients and a few basic tools like a digital scales, stick blender, large stainless steel bowl, spoons, molds and a small, basic soap cutter. And so began my soap making adventure! I have since expanded into making other natural skin care products to include Lotion Candles and Lip Balm. I am learning the value of using therapeutic grade essential oils and organic carrier oils and hope to include more of them in my products in the near future.
Homemaid Expressions' candles have two different uses: as a candle or as a lotion/moisturizer. The candle is a soy candle. There are different scents to choose from. I ended trying the Lavender Lotion Candle. This one smells really good and just like lavender. The scent carried throughout the upstairs of our house. It was nice being able to smell it in all the bedrooms.
The candle is made with soy wax, sweet almond oil, shea butter, coco butter, lavender essential oils. These ingredients are perfect for moisturizing your skin. The soy wax melts at nearly skin temperature. So when the wax had meted a bit and warmed up, I blew the candle out and poured some on my skin. I was scared to pour it at first, but when it touched my skin it was just very warm. The soy wax felt good. It rubbed right in and made my skin feel nice and soft. Pus I love the smell of the candle so I liked having the scent on my skin.
Homemaid Expressions sells natural products to moisturize your skin with. I am always amazed how people can create their own soaps and candles. It looks so difficult to me. The two products I tried worked very well, smelled yummy, and I would completely recommend. I did not try the lip balms, but I bet they work very well too. I see why goat milk soap is so popular. It makes your skin feel so soft and smell good. Homemaid Expressions does a very good job at making goat milk soap and lotion candles!
