There are two things I can't stand during summertime (well three, but I can't do anything to help the humidity) and they are mosquitoes and sunburn, I decided to make two very special WiTS Lotions for Summer 2018.
This listings is for "Bug Off" Body Lotion. It contains a blend of essential oils including citronella, lemongrass, orange, eucalyptus, and litsea cubeba to effectively discourage those pesky flies and mosquitoes from bugging you all summer long.
Available in a 2 oz. jar, a 4 oz. jar, and a 4 oz. squeeze bottle.
WiTS ("What is This Sorcery?") Lotion is packed full of skin-loving, nourishing natural ingredients that absorb quickly and leave your skin ultra moisturized.
***CONTAINS OILS DERIVED FROM SEEDS/NUTS***
WITS Lotion creamy body lotion contains avocado oil, sweet almond oil, rice bran oil, babassu oil, jojoba oil, oat extract oil, buckthorn extract, kukui nut oil, chia seed oil, vitamin E, vegetable glycerin, BTMS-50 (emulsifying wax), stearic acid, shea butter, aloe vera, distilled water, and Optiphen (preservative). Scented options contain skin-safe fragrance oil. Please store WITS Lotion in a cool place and use within 8-12 months as the natural ingredients do have a shelf life.

I always use the highest quality cosmetic-grade ingredients from reputable suppliers for my polishes. Each and every polish is hand-mixed by me personally in a clean and sanitary environment. Almost every polish is made to order. I usually only mix large batches of polish a day or two prior to new collection releases.
Indie polishes are quite different from mainstream polishes. They are made and bottled with love! You'll find there is many more beautiful options when it comes to types of indie polishes. There are also some helpful hints that apply to indie polishes. First, you should always let your bottles of polish reach room temperature before opening them (especially in cold weather months). Next, please ALWAYS use 2 or more coats of a quality basecoat before applying polishes. ***DUE TO THE HIGH PIGMENTATION OF SOME POLISH COLORS, NAIL STAINING MAY OCCUR*** (This is why using a quality basecoat is so important). Also, you may find it helpful to set your bottle of polish upside down for about 10 minutes before use, then roll it around in your hands. ***SOME OF THE HEAVIER GLITTERS MAY SETTLE TO THE BOTTTOM OF THE BOTTLE*** This is why the upside-down trick is helpful...it will reduce the amount of fishing for glitters, especially the heavy glitters. A quality topcoat is also recommended to help deter wear to your polish and smooth out large glitters. Finally, please feel free to offer feedback to me. As an indie maker, I love to hear what my customers love, don't like, would like more/less of!!
