It seems like a lot of you want to learn how to formulate your own products, which is awesome! This is why we created the Beginners! Start here section of the blog, which is filled with everything you need to know to start making your own stuff, including lotions, body butters, conditioners, and so so much more!
I shared this post with loads of links earlier this month – Back to Basics: Making your first lotion – and that’s a great place to start if you want to learn how to make lotions, body butters, creams, and more!
