Spring is almost here, so lets Celebrate with some refreshing Organic Lemon Creme Lotion!

Here at Honey Bee Holistic’s Farm, we are anxiously awaiting the days when the ☼SUN☼ comes up at 6am and hangs around till 9pm! Each Spring the Rhubarb starts popping up near the pump house…..

And the dainty volunteer Daffodils start coming up to show us their bright faces!

It is always a very exciting time tending the garden, pruning the herbs, and making sure to take time for the sun! My hopes are high this year on the variety of herbs and veggies we will grow! We are even planning on getting some laying hens for fresh eggs! Oh, my…..Fresh eggs! SOOO excited for that! My little one is excited too as she has been learning about farm animals! She keeps talking about “feeding scratch to the chickens”! It will be great to see her face when we get them!

Being able to be a Work-at-Home-Mom and not miss those cute little moments, is exactly why I work so hard at my business keeping everything fresh & new!

So speaking of fresh and new……Does the color YELLOW make YOU feel happy?

I know I feel so cheery when I look at the color yellow! It is said that the color yellow is good for despondent and melancholy conditions. In Ancient societies, yellow was the animating color for life suggesting joy, gaiety, merriment. No wonder why my entire Kitchen is COVERED with Sunflowers!!

So when I got a call from my Mom who reported she had access to fresh ORGANIC Meyer Lemons, I JUMPED on the chance! This would allow me to make my own Organic Lemon Extracts and incorporate them into my products like my Organic Lemon Creme Lotion!

Soon after they arrived, my daughter kept smelling them all day, counting them as she pulled them out of the box & when she put them back!

After processing the lemons by washing with water only, cutting, juicing, and removing the pith, my windowsill was riddled with jars full of the cuttings!

The rind cuttings cure for 4 weeks in my farmhouse windowsill in the sun until it turns a pale yellow! It is ready to be turned into a Lemon Delight!

Today I will tell you about my Organic Lemon Creme Lotion!

It is like a Lemon Pie topped with fresh vanilla whipped cream! I have teamed up the power of the Lemon Essential Oil, and my own Handmade Organic Extract, with REAL vanilla bean to give the tartness a creamy edge!
It is great for balancing Oily skin, as well as revitalizing under-active mature skin! This revitalizing comes from the Lemon Oils abilities to exfoliate dead skin cells and improving circulation!
This circulation boost is also great for helping to eliminate wastes, such as cellulite!
Who doesn’t need the help of some good circulation and exfoliation?? I know I sure do!! Especially after the dry WINTER skin that needs to be removed for the new SPRING skin to be revealed!
Not only is it good for the body, but the hands as well! It helps keep your nails & cuticles in tip top shape by moisturizing and strengthening brittle nails!

A giveaway of my Organic Coconut Banana Lotion!

So another year has passed, as well as another wonderful year for not only my Family, but my business as well!
I have used my blog as a way to highlight others, introduce new products, and give you a little peek inside of my world! I do love to share with you what my business is all about, and I look forward to sharing more with you!

I see my business changing as time goes on. My exposure from Word-of-Mouth has proven to be my best form of advertising!
The end of 2012 brought one of my new products………Organic Coconut Banana Cream Pie Lotion!

It was a sunny but cool Autumn afternoon. I wanted to incorporate coconut with something else, but what?
Some bananas were on the counter, smelling very ripe. Sweet, but caramel-like……That’s it, BANANA!

It all started! I began experimenting with just HOW could I extract the great smell of the ripe banana.
Of course this is the part of the story where I write the recipes down in my secret book, and continue from there!

So then it finally worked! I was able to extract the awesome banana smell from an Organic Banana! YEAH!

Now the hard part was over! I combined the extract with my already buttery & smooth Organic Coconut Lotion, and OH MY GOODNESS!! It was if you could eat it!

Next step was to convey this through my photograph of the lotion! I got it in my mind that the only extra prop in the picture HAD to be an actual Organic Coconut Banana Cream Pie! Fresh Whipped cream and all!

So I spent a few hours that afternoon, making the pie completely from scratch! I heard comments from my family that it would be easier to just buy it for the picture. Well, maybe, but I find it hard to take a picture of my Organic Coconut Banana Cream Pie next to a Chemical Pie that CLAIMS to be the real thing! PLUS, then we can actually EAT it once I was done using it as a prop! GENIUS!

Oh, and by-the-way, it was DELICIOUS!! Sooooo good!

I have had it listed in my shop for a while now, and I have sold some already! Each person who tries it falls completely in LO♥E! At this time I am only selling them in 8oz sizes due to not only the time invested in it, but that is my batch size. This ensures that my lotion wouldn’t sit and go bad!
You know that is how all of my orders are, Don’t you? I make each order fresh so you have the maximum shelf life on your lotions! It hasn’t been sitting in some warehouse, like most conventional lotions, it was freshly made right before being packed & shipped off to you!

So you can order my Organic Coconut Banana Cream Pie lotion HERE
