My life is a nonstop medley of Measure, Melt, Mix, Pour, Wipe Down, Label, Seal, Repeat! Here’s a little behind the scenes look at how RachelMade Products are crafted.

 

My beautiful little organic beeswax pastilles getting measured so they can become lip balm. (Ok ok, usually I use a measuring cup but this looked so much cooler for the picture!)

You would never guess how much fun measuring can be!

The measurement must be exact!

May I offer you some beeswax pastilles?!

Measuring out my organic coconut oil!

Checking on my balm… it must be perfectly melted!

It is looking and smelling wonderful!

I have to carefully wipe down the double boiler before I pour. Even one drop of water will ruin the batch!

Pouring carefully…

But what’s a batch of lip balms without a little spill on the counter? The balm is perfect even though the pouring may not be!

Getting every last drop!

Now I leave those to set while I start mixing up some Decadent Dead Sea Salt Soaks!

A little more measuring, a little more pouring…

Adding organic essential oil to my organic sunflower oil, drop by drop for perfection!

And now we pour…

Mix, mix, mix…

Measure it out perfectly into each container and weigh it out… 10oz ON THE DOT

Look at those Decadent Salts, waiting for you to soak in their goodness!

And now onto mixing up some Sumptuous Sugar Scrubs!

You get the idea… measuring and mixing galore!

May I offer your some Sumptuous Sugar Scrub?

This little impromptu photo turned out to be my favorite from the whole bunch!

And now, time to CLEAN that mixing bowl!

While I was mixing my scrubs and salts, I was melting down this Basic Balm, which is now ready to pour!

And then they all get capped, labeled, and sealed!
