lait après soleil | after sun body milk for face & body

after sun body milk by Stella Crown
Though we all love summer, sea and sun along with them we have also sunburns and denydrated flaky skin. Which means that we obviously need an anaplastic, regenerative and delicate lotion that will be absorbed directly.
So I made a simple but effective formula, where I intentionally used only beeswax for emulsification because I needed a texture rich and fatty enough; just what dehydrated skin needed. Furthermore, it heals and softens the skin, stimulates elasticity while forms a thin protective film that prevents the loss of moisture from the skin.

diy vanilla & orange bath bombs

vanilla & orange bath bombs by Stella Crown
Bath bombs are amazing and can be spectacular, while rejuvenating us. However, are they really suitable for our skin? Not necessarily. Unfortunately most that are on the on the market, contain loads of dangerous dyes or inappropriate ingredients such as toxic fake fragrances, glitter, etc. which can cause serious skin issues (this is the best scenario).
The good news is that we can easily make bath bombs at home using certain ingredients according to our own needs.

diy vanilla & orange sugar scrub

vanilla & orange sugar scrub by Stella Crown
Lately, I am often absent and when I’m back, blogging seems a kind of a luxury. Obligations are accumulating and their classification causes me horror; what if I am a librarian and know exactly how to get the job done? listening the “obligation” word is enough to spoil everyone’s psychology. And somewhere here, while I was passing in front of the grocery, trying to find a solution to fix things and situations, a crate full of oranges whispered in my ear “USE US”. That was it! It was time to throw out of my life toxins and toxic people, I grabbed my suitcase and came back to what I love. I started with a body scrub (watch the symbolism coming), the only way to get rid of dead cells, pollutants and toxins.

chocolate vegan lip balm

choco lip balm by Stella Crown
My friend N. asked me to make for her a chocolate lip balm and it is a very nice choice because chocolate is one of the most nutritious natural products, especially the bitter one. So I made a lip balm based on cocoa butter, famous for its moisturizing properties, which smells slightly chocolate while I added coconut oil as it fills the cracks of the lips and makes them soft and flexible.

gardener's hand cream with alkanna extract & urea

gardener's hand cream by Stella Crown
So far I've only given one hand cream recipe for the beekeeper's hands but now I think, it's time to make a formula for the gardener's hands too! A nourishing and protective cream, suitable for the wearied hands of the gardeners and not only, but also chefs, builders and other hand-working jobs. What if the cream is a little bit… pink??😱😜
