Dollops should be creamy and decadent and this one does not disappoint. Picture it….You….In your kitchen. You open a massive 16 oz. jar of fluffy, triple whipped creamy goodness featuring extra virgin olive oil, odorless cocoa butter, light rice bran oil, nurturing avocado oil, honeyquat, and green tea and aloe vera leaf extracts. All the while, you’re wondering will you ever use all of this big ole’ jar of gloppity goop. There’s an awful lot of cream in that jar. You scoop out an ounce or two into a glass bowl, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil or synergy blend or perhaps a good quality fragrance oil. You stir it in to the cream to saturate every decadence smear of cream. The aroma wafts to your nose. Ahhh! You dip your finger in and take out a small dollop and rub it on your shoulder. Then a little on your dry, rough elbow. Oh Emm Goodness! You sigh with a deep ecstatic release then deeply breathe in the aroma of your creation. Wow! That rough patch of skin is hardly noticeable! And your shoulder feels so good and free! You sink into a calm relaxed mindset that’s happy…joyful even. As you put your personally customized aromatherapy cream into a small jar and place your fun and colorful label on it so you can remember what’s in this little jar of delight, you wonder how you ever lived without this product for so long. Your mind turns to Aunt Martha, Uncle Buck, Granny, your sister, your BFF. You start planning the perfect little gift for each of them made with your own hands and the help of this amazing dollop of decadence. You realize this seemingly massive jar may not be enough for all the things you want to make and people you want to share with. And you thank the good Lord above, Neos Skin Care™ and the head belle for awesomesauce and convenience you never want to be without again.
OK, so maybe it doesn’t go exactly like that but it’ll be close to it. You just have to try it to see why the Neos Skin Care testing team fell in love with this cream base designed for DIY’ing with and called it “decadent”. In fact, they helped name it.
Fun Fact: Did you know emulsified cream bases formulated for additives make great foundation for a number of do-it-yourself projects? It’s true. As part of the DIY Collection experience from Neos Skin Care™, you’ll get a project idea sheet with a few fun and fabulous projects to try out. I don’t give “recipes” exactly. Instead, I inspire ideas and encourage you to step out of the usual box and into the open where possibilities await. Any questions if your idea is suitable for the base, just give me a shout. I’ll walk you through it so you can feel confident it’s doable and safe.
