La-Di-Da

Ugh – I have been wickedly depressed for the last few days. Not sure what’s up with that. I’ve been taking my happy pills like a good girl, etc. Oh well – the best combatant for the ugly moods is to hit the soap studio and get to creatin’. So that’s what I’ve been doing.

Helena and I ordered some cyclomethicone to experiment with in creams and lotions, and I’ve discovered you can use it to make super-cool body sprays too. Cyclomethicone is a silicone, a slippery, oily-like substance, but sprayed on your skin it feels dry and smooth, like you’ve sprayed yourself with a powder. You can spray your hair with it and it will make your hair shiny and silky without being greasy.

It’s used in lotions to impart a silky, glide-y feel without being greasy. I just finished re-tweaking my body butter formula with it, and it’s really fabulous. I scented it with a fragrance called Amber Dawn – it’s a vanilla-y, chocolate-y, musky kind of scent that mixes well with the cocoa butter in the lotion.

So, when all else fails and I feel bad, I formulate. Currently, there is a body scrub in the making… I haven’t decided how I’m going to scent it, since it’s just for me to throw in the shower and try.
