and had a strong idea to do something?

I woke up this morning, and my first thought was to start a skin care line. I knew exactly what to put in it, and how to make it...completely out of nowhere.

I have always made my own natural stuff for myself (I dont like all the alcohol in store products). But never packaged it and sold it.

What do you think...should I follow it? Its wierd because it was so out of nowhere, like it was sent to me. And the urge is so strong.

******Update
Well, I went and got some jars, and the ingredients. I made the face/body scrub and it turned out
AWESOME!!!!! Better then bath and body works IMO. I got glass jars, so it looks nice too.
Dave tried it out and his face was smooth/soft as a babys booty. I just made the face mask. I used calcuim bentonite glay. He is using testing it out now on the couch. I also used essential oils and olive oil in both.

I used top of the line ingredients in it...no cheap clay or oils.

Oh and on a cool note, I stopped by a beauty spa to ask where they get their dead sea salts, cause im having a hard time finding it. And we got to talking about me making my skin stuff for a few min and she told me to bring in a sample. She will show her son (her kids own it with her) and if they like it they will sell it there!! She said they would like to help out a local small business. So fingers crossed!!! I am going to make them a jar tonight and bring it over tomarrow.

Go for it! You'll never know unless you try. And if you don't try, you'll always wonder.

Super great news!! How much are you selling it for? You ought to make at least a little spending money on this, especially if the local salon will sell it for you!

This is so cool! I am really into the natural stuff too. If you ever get to where you want to sell your product online and you want to send me a few samples I will write a review on my blog! PM me for more info if you'd like!

I actually do want to sell it online. Everything I make is so natural you could actually eat it if you order it w/o essential oils lol. No Alcohol, Patroleum, or water fillers. I made a 3 step system. A sugar scrub, then bentonite clay mask, then a oatmeal skin soak/wash.
I am currently sending out samples, so I could sent you some. Prolly not for a week or so though, as I need to go out and buy more jars and set up my website.

Send me your info on PM if you are ok with doing so.
