If I’m not creating, I’m not living.
It’s no secret that I suffer with chronic health issues that can sometimes severely impact my daily life and my ability to get as much done as I would like to. Instead of just feeling sorry for myself and not doing anything with my time when I am having a bad day, I discovered that one of the things that truly helps to not only make me feel happier mentally and emotionally but also helps to get my mind off of the pain is to create and be to be inspired.
Particularly at night I create and concoct. It is my time to delve into my inspirations and play around with different ideas. I am very excited about working on my upcoming Etsy shop which I plan to open hopefully within the next year, though I will start selling some products or sending samples in the mean time if requested. I will be offering a very small collection of homemade organic skincare, hair and body care, and tea blends on Etsy, as well as some random hair accessories and jewelry.
Before I begin anything I have to get my recipes perfect. I have been spending my nights in the kitchen creating all different types of concoctions. I have almost mastered my Organic Rose Lavender Clay Face Mask and I have also come up with a super hydrating Lip Balm, a few wonderful Tea blends and a luscious body oil. If there is anything you’d like to see me create, please feel free to leave suggestions as I am open to sharing my own creations with all of you.
Onto the creations…
I recently did a post on my homemade Organic Rose Lavender Clay Face Mask and Scrub. I had a giveaway and picked five winners. I sent out the products in Mason Jars and decorated the tops with individual artistic collages wax-sealed with the letter “B” (for Britanie or Beauty or Beauty By Britanie). I am still working on the packaging for this Face Mask. I recently got in a huge shipment of different types of recycable jars and tins and am playing around with different ideas.
I made this tea using a mixture of Organic herbs and flowers like Rooibos, Dandelion, Lavender, some shredded Organic Coconut and Cacao nibs. It is so good. I am calling it my “Delicious Dessert Tea”. You can indulge in this tea without feeling guilty as it’s extremely detoxing and sooo good.
Organic Lemon Cookie Lip Sugar Scrub. This scrub is good enough to eat and so clean that you could eat it if you wanted to!
This is my all over body butter wash. It contains a blend of Raw Honey, Rosewater, Organic Coconut oil and a blend of Organic Flowers and Vitamin E. After you rinse this mixture off, your skin will be left feeling so soft and supple and will smell of Roses, Chamomile and Honey.
My DIY Calming Face Mask for Eczema, Sensitive and/or Acne Prone Skin was a huge success and I have since added a few more ingredients and am considering selling it in my future Etsy shop. It is a combination of only a few ingredients but has helped my eczema flare so much. It’s also super hydrating and makes my skin feel amazing. This mask is also great for spot-treating.
My homemade face masks all ready to ship off to the giveaway winners!
I have three extra Face Masks for some friends. These are wrapped in micro-fiber cloths.
I made Vanilla and Lemon Lip balms using only Organic oils, waxes and Shea and Cocoa Butters. These are delicious and super hydrating. I plan on making more and using different essential oils to create all different scents. I am also working on making some tinted lipbalms as well.
Creating is the essence of life.
I am off to create some more!
