I am really happy to be sharing this product line with my readers right before the holiday season hits.  I think that those of us who have young girls to shop for will be especially interested these do it yourself kits.  They combine two things girls love - crafting and beauty products.

As I mention in the bullet points there are several kiss naturals kits to choose from.  There are large sized boxes which produce 8-10 pieces and mini kits which will make 5.  If your need is bigger, consider a party pack which has two full sized kits and will yield 16-20 pieces.

If you are planning a sleepover, a party, or want to make some economical stocking stuffers, let me show you a couple of these cool kits.

This is the Kiss Naturals DIY Lip Balm Kit

  • Orange and Grapefruit Essential Oils for Fragrance

  • Makes 10 - $21.95

Once I had my ingredients assembled and read the directions, I uncovered the pots and got them ready to fill.

 The next step was to slowly melt the beeswax and shea butter into the safflower oil.

I added some essential oils to create a bright citrus scent and then kept a close eye on the process until I had a clear liquid solution.

This was quickly put into the pots and allowed to harden.  (I used a medicine syringe to fill the pots and it worked very well.)

After 30 minutes the lip balms had solidified and was ready to use. It goes on fairly smooth and softens my lips right away.

I Also Made Kiss Naturals DIY Bath Fizzies

 This kit includes:
  • 3 Jars of Secret Formula (all natural items found in the kitchen)
  • 2 Bottles of Pure Essential Oil
  • Safflower Oil
  • Witch Hazel
  • An 8 Piece Fizzie Mold
  • Makes 8- $16.95

The fizzies are made by combining powders then adding the liquids in mixing until everything is moist but still powdery.  It will look like the photo below.

The next part is important.  Pack the mixture into the mold, tightly.  I used a measuring spoon and after I put in a scoop I packed it down and repeated the process until the mold was filled.  There should not be any airiness or the fizzie will not hold its shape after it dries.

When I was finished filling I cleaned the top of the mold and allowed them to harden overnight.

The website has a blog and more information including videos of kids making the products.  The kits are meant to be used with adult supervision and are best for children ages 6 or 7 and up.

These products are great teaching tools, too.  Kids can find out how bath fizzies work and get a chemistry lesson about sodium bicarbonate and citric acid.  (and of course the reaction when these combined substances are added to water!)  It is also a great opportunity to discuss the way we check the lists of ingredients on other products around the house and compare them to these all natural items.

You may have also noticed the attractive packaging.  These boxes can be re-purposed and used as shadow boxes, so it is like getting two crafts for the price of one.

I am happy to offer a giveaway for one of these kits.  I'm not sure which one, it will be at the company's discretion.  Submit your entries using the Rafflecopter form below.
