When making beauty products, there’s always a little bit of product leftover at the end of the process that is too hard to pour and that doesn’t dry with a smooth surface. I call this the “sludge.” Not a pretty name, and it doesn’t LOOK pretty, either, but it works just as well.
I tend to get a lot of “sludge tins” when making Sankalpa Scents because the candelilla wax hardens very quickly, and I don’t want to compromise the oils by heating them, cooling them, and heating them again. I used to give these “sludge tins” to my friends, but eventually, there are too many to give away! I’ve decided to sell these at a discounted price for those of you who’d like to try the Sankalpa Scents and don’t mind imperfection!
And speaking of imperfection, a small percentage of our tins don’t work the way they should. What does that mean? Simply that the tops are loose, and therefore, wouldn’t be appropriate to carry in your purse, where the top might fall off. The product itself is absolutely perfect – it’s only the tins that don’t work so well.
Both of these items will start appearing on the Etsy store. Sometimes, it will be for a specific item. Other times, it will be a general category (usually Sankalpa Scents), and what you receive will be a surprise.
So be sure to keep an eye out for our Loose Lid Discounts and Sludge Tin Discounts! Embrace imperfection – and its great, low price!
Have a headache? Kick it to the curb with this wonderful massage oil blend.
This blend of oils is the perfect remedy for headaches. Lavender oil is extremely relaxing. The scent alone helps people release tension and anxiety. Lavender is considered by herbalists to be a “nervine relaxant.” This means that it calms the body and is beneficial to the nervous system.
Peppermint essential oil helps clear the mind with its stimulating scent. It is also especially useful for sinus headaches. Some herbalists say that peppermint is a more potent remedy for headaches than over-the-counter painkillers.
When you have a headache, or simply need to clear your mind and relax, rub a few drops of this oil onto your hands. Apply some to your temples, the back of your neck, and, if you like, to your forehead, and chest. Place your open palms in front of your face and take a few moments to inhale the aroma.
This can be used on its own, or as a complement to allopathic remedies. If you really want to kick your headache in the gut, sit down with a cup of peppermint or skullcap tea after you have applied this oil. Take deep, long breaths while you drink, and in many cases, your headache will be gone by the time you finish your tea.
