Thick and Luscious Cream........

I have just made a batch of my Goats Milk & Oatmeal Cream....and remembered to take pictures this time, yay!  I love making lotions and creams.  It is quite magical to watch them thicken and become something smooth and creamy or thick and luscious ~

Here are my melted oils, butters and emulsifing wax:

Once combined with the water-based ingredients everything turns milky white:

After time and cooling, the mixture becomes gorgeously thick!

Here is some in a jar, almost ready to be labelled:

This gorgeous, thick cream spreads well and sinks in fast with a lovely velvety after-feel. Made with a generous amount of soothing aloe vera juice; teamed with skin-loving oils and butters chosen for their anti-oxidant properties; and including colloidal oatmeal - for its soothing relief of dry, itchy or sensitive skin; and powdered goats milk - for its soothing, smoothing and moisturising properties.  This is best used unscented if you have a sensitive skin or certain skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis.  If you would like to try some you can find it on my Facebook page and also in my Ethikl store.

Have a wonderful day!

A Few New Creations....

It seems like simply ages since I have posted here....and I have been catching up on photographing my most recently added soapy creations, so I'd like to share them with you *smile*

Copacabana soap ~ scented with a refreshing spa fragrance to transport you all the way to sunny Brazil! Teamed with gentle olive oil, silk and with shea butter added for extra creaminess. 

Oat Milk & Linseed soap ~ scented with a refreshing essential oil blend; teamed with oat milk and silk to soothe and soften; made with added linseed (flaxseed) oil which is high in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and a generous amount of castor oil. This soap may also be used as a gentle shampoo bar.

Heavenly Silk soap ~ scented with may chang and lavender essential oils to uplift and sooth you.  This soap has Australian pink clay swirled through to gently tone your skin, teamed with aloe vera juice and silk to soothe and soften; with a generous amount of mild, gentle olive oil and rich, nourishing cocoa butter for added creaminess.

Puppy Wash Bar ~ dogs skin has a pH averaging around 7.4 - similar to human babies and higher than a human adult - so they need a very mild and gently cleansing soap. I have used oils with higher linoleic and linolenic acid profiles to develop my Puppy Wash Bar specifically for our canine friends.
Lightly scented with essential oils to discourage ticks and fleas; teamed with neem oil for its insect repellent and skincare properties, oatmilk, silk and with a generous amount of castor oil added for shine.

You can find these and more on my TITANIA'S DREAMY DELIGHTS  Facebook page and they will soon to added to my ETHIKL online store.

Have a wonderful day!
