Lately i have been mixing lotions and shampoo/conditioner. At first i was trying to make them from scratch, i wasnt very good at it. Then i grabbed some premixed “organic” bottles of each and began adding what i wanted, MUCH easier.
One of the shampoo’s i mixed is Tea Tree Oil, Menthol and Elderberry. It isnt the best smelling but it works well on dandruff and freezes your entire skull, i use it 3X/week. The conditioner is pretty well set as it is so i added some Mint, Cedar and Vanilla. The cedar i made from soaking some dried cedar chips in a small amount of PG and the vanilla is random vanilla flavorings i dont use anymore.
The lotions i have been making are mostly Copaiba Oil and CBD. The CBD i use is both a full spectrum product suspended in hemp oil and CBD isolate which i mix into the oil to increase its effectiveness. The lotion i buy is a bit on the thin side which i personally like. Both the CBD and Copaiba Oil are great anti inflammatory. I mix these in small 10ml bottles and add different things to them from time to time.
I also make a make a splash on cooling agent for shaving, menthol, witch hazel and ground alum block. I shave old school style and getting used to a new shaving soap can take a bit of time, this stuff ill fixes me right up…
I dont really have any recipes for this stuff and as with mixing its all personal preference. I get the bases/oils from bulkapothecary. I dont know if it is cheaper doing it this way but it is exactly what i want. The lotions dont smell like grandma and are thin enough to rub in quickly.
Cant imagine that i would have tried doing any of this if it werent for getting in making my own liquids.
