Are you interested in learning how to make your own body products with natural ingredients? Maybe with the honey and wax from the beehive in your own backyard? Learning how to make our own body products gives us feelings of satisfaction and comfort. By making your own body products you become aware of what ingredients are being used, you support the local economy by purchasing ingredients from local stores, you often reuse containers, and it is even easier tailor the product to best suit your needs.
