So, I decided to open my own Etsy shop! I’ve only posted one item for sale for now, as I need to prep other products before adding them to my shop. This is my first attempt to sell on Etsy, and although I don’t expect to sell loads of stuff, I do hope I will have a little success selling things I make. My favourite homemade products are natural skin care products. My background in massage therapy is helpful, as I’ve relied on my own skills for making my own professional products to use in my massage practice, and I continue to make my own hand and body creams.
The cream I have currently listed on my shop is a healing basalm for soothing and healing severely dry, chapped skin and conditions like eczema or other skin blemishes. It’s not so ideal as a normal moisturising hand cream, due to the honey, which makes it slightly sticky.
I made some for the children because their hands were so raw from excessive handwashing, the result of this panic over the Corona virus. It has helped so much, and their hands healed in just a few days! The honey might be sticky, but it is the magic ingredient!
I didn’t add any fragrance to this basalm, because the honey and natural beeswax already smells so wonderful, that personally, I think it is perfect just as it is!
That’s all for now. I hope everyone has a wonderful afternoon!
