diy oat bran & coriander m & p soap

oat bran & coriander soap by Stella Crown
“Soap is love, soap is passion”, Peppy told me once. “Come on”, I replied, “you’re being exaggerate”.

Well, she is totally right! Without noticing, I do make a lot of soap lately, following mostly the m&p method. Actually, this blog was talking only for m&p soap, in order to keep safe the followers. If something has been of particular concern to me since I started writing, it is whether the reader can manage the information he receives; I used to have doubts if it’s ok to write here how to make soap from scratch. Not anymore.

diy Bug Off body mist

Bug Off body mist by Stella Crown
I can hardly describe my enthusiasm for summer. The only thing that spoil  my mood is mosquito coming by... and insects.. and bugs. I'm sure they exist in nature to serve their purpose, but I do not want them around me and I definitely do not want to bite me 😂

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.
