Section 1: Introduction to making your cosmetics

Welcome to the course. I hope you find many useful ideas to get you started.


Learn to make a simple linen or body spray.

Section 2: For the Bath

Learn to make your own bath salts (the kind you add to your bath to relieve aches and pains). Bath salts are easy to make and this video can give you some ideas on what you can add to personalize your product. You can add your favorite perfume, essential oils and learn how to keep a lasting scent.


Bath fizzies can be quite expensive to buy in stores such as Lush, but luckily you can quite easily make your own using a few common ingredients. To make them smell nice you can add perfumes or essential oil and to make them pretty you can add flowers.


Tub truffles are bath fizzies with an added twist. For extra moisture we add cocoa butter that melts in the tub to condition your skin and hair.

Section 3: For The Body

Sea salt scrubs can be pretty expensive in stores. You can make your own with sugar or sea salt and customize it to suit your tastes from different textures to scents.


Thinking about making your own lip balm? This video is for you. We go through making lip balm for our vegan friends using a natural wax rather than paraffin. The result is a smooth, lovely product.


Massage oil is quite simple to make, but choosing the right oils for skin can be a bit challenging. This video guides you through that process.

Section 4: Just for Baby

Want a super soft baby powder? The combination of powders absorb moisture readily and with the right combination of essential oils keep bacteria and yeast at bay.


Baby bum sprays are for those parents who don't want to use baby wipes for diaper changes. Washing with aloe vera juice conditions the skin and you don't worry if accidentally gets into their mouths.

Section 5: The End

You did it! Making your own creations has never been so easy

Instructor Biography

I have been making cosmetics since 2005 to help my sister and me deal with the dry Alberta climate. Since then I have sold some of my creations in my business called Lotions and Potions. My university degree in chemistry, which helps a lot when I try to formulate new products. My live classes have been covered in the Edmonton Journal and on local tv.
