I was apprehensive when my friends voted for an Essential Oils Make & Take Party. Never having held one and new to essential oils myself the amount of work and research was daunting. To prepare my helper and I tested and created powder laundry soap, liquid laundry soap, dish soap, multi-surface cleaning spray, cleaning wipes, bath bombs, shower bombs and soft scrub cleaning paste. Can you tell I like to be thorough? : )
Our first batch of shower bombs well bombed ; ) This is the second time I’ve made shower bombs and I just don’t know what I am doing wrong. Definitely a Pinterest fail : ( The bath bombs on the other hand were super easy and fun to make and the kids loved using them in the bath.
At the party we created bath bombs, lemon cleaning paste and filled roller ball vials. To save money I purchased smaller rollerball vials on Amazon which was a big mistake. It was so hard to close them. Next time I’ll use the ones that Lemongrass Spa offers; the quality is fantastic and at $1.50 each they are not expensive. I also think that I will focus on making only two items a night and make the event more of a social occasion versus a class.
Now I’m going to go sniff some oils and watch HGTV ; )
