Homemade After Sun Relief Lotion

Lately I have been a lotion makin' fool!  If you haven't caught the bug already, once you get the hang of it, you will probably be one too!  It's just so rewarding to create a rich, creamy moisturizer that your skin literally drinks up!  Being aware of each and every ingredient is a rare thing in the skin care world.  Did you know that the skin care industry isn't regulated like the food industry?  There is no guarantee that what is printed on the ingredient list is actually every ingredient … [Read more...]

The EASIEST Lotion Recipe Anyone Can Make!!

Many of you have asked me if you can ditch the emulsifying wax in my other DIY cream recipes and use beeswax instead.  With quite the know-it-all stance, I quickly assured you that beeswax would not properly bind oil and water.  I had tried this method in my early days of experimenting with DIYs and created the most greasy, non-cohesive "cream".  It was super gross and I reluctantly had to throw away a lot of wasted ingredients. I don't know what got into me this morning but I decided to give … [Read more...]

DIY Baby Lotion

It's baby week at Jenni Raincloud!  My "baby" is coming frighteningly close to growing into a little girl.  Let me tell you, I'm holding onto that last ounce of baby as long as I can!  I'm not even anxious to potty train her and a big girl bed-I can't even deal.  So, before my baby days are behind me, I wanted to share a few recipes that come in handy when caring for a baby.  Baby lotion is a staple in my home.  Our winters are dry, as are our summers.  Even the healthiest baby skin can become … [Read more...]

DIY Cooling Foot Cream

Hi!  Jenni, from Jenni Raincloud here for your Beautiful Skin Friday!  Summer is going to be here before we know it!  I don't know about you, but the thought of putting sandals on right about now seems like a really bad idea!  My heels are such a problem.  So, in the spirit of getting sandal ready, I thought we should make a super thick and luxurious foot cream!  And... As an added bonus, we can add the essential oils, peppermint and tea tree for a cooling sensation and de-odorizing … [Read more...]

Dry Skin Moisturizer with Shea Butter

I've been making face cream for my mother for a while now, but my "experiments" are never moisturizing enough for her skin.  She gets dry patches on her cheeks and getting a cream that addresses that issue has not been easy.  I have made over 10 different formulations trying to get something that works for her!  I finally did it-I found a concoction that is nourishing and thick enough but not greasy!  With winter coming, we all get a little drier.  With heaters in our homes and cars skin is … [Read more...]

Olive Oil and Lavender Cleanser and Face Cream….

Olive Oil is one of my favorite oils to use in my homemade moisturizers and cleansers.  It is so healthy for the skin and hair!  It is packed full of antioxidants and vitamins.  Vitamin A is a healing and rebuilding vitamin found in olive oil.  It helps your cells to repair and renew.  It is awesome for preventing the signs of aging.  Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps fight free radicals.  It is one of many antioxidants that olive oil contains.  One of the most potent antioxidant in olive … [Read more...]
