I made my first batch of whipped shea butter today and to be honest, I was gratified.
That single act meant one thing to me;
Natural Product Line.
The possibility of a natural product line.
I mentioned this to the girls and I can’t exactly say how thrilled they were, all I knew was that they were pleased with the idea. So I kept on rambling and ranting with the hope that they’d understand how serious I was.
But first it was an idea.
An idea of a business.
An idea of an all-natural homemade product line.
Then I kept on rambling. I didn’t care if they were tweeting away not paying attention to me. By now, they had probably heard enough especially since I currently didn’t have the means to implement this idea.
It all came like a rush of wind.
One day. Someday.
I have faith.
Today I kept on whipping and mixing. I didn’t have a hand mixer so I just used the manual one.
Mixing in different directions.
Whipping in faith.
A new beginning(tautology?).
I had to write. There has to be a record.
I began thinking of the different possibilities, options, ingredients.
I went to the store.
The huge bottle of Safflower oil kept calling to me.
In fact, all of the bottles under the cooking oil section sudden became product-worthy.
”I could add this and that to my whipped shea butter” The convos in my head kept going on and on.
Finally, I settled for what I had.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Sweet Almond Oil.
That would do just fine for now.
When I was done, after application it felt rather greasy so I added water and mixed and whipped until it disappeared. I remembered some of the products I have. I checked the ingredients list. I knew water was always the first. I started making corrections.
Trial and error.
My next batch is so gonna be better.
Yes. I’m over the moon.
Yes, my dreams are valid.
