My daydream, homemade spa products. Thoughts?

by Wench on November 18, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

If I were independently wealthy and could wrangle up the supplies, and if I knew the first thing about business, I think what I'd love to do, more than anything, more than even photography, is make organic skin care products. I messed around with a potential business name and image today while coming up with some test recipes for my sister's Christmas gift. Cocoa oatmeal mask with honey and cream, sea salt scrub with ginger, honey and avocado oil, rice toner with eucalyptus oil. I'm way too excited to make them.

Any tips from business entrepeneurs or skin care product enthusiasts? It's just a dream for now, but I wouldn't mind it being more than that.
