  1. I have read all the blogs and substitutes but I’m not seeing anything to sub out the colloidal oatmeal. I can’t use it because I have celiacs disease. Any tips?

  2. When you add the ingredients after each other, to you press the tare button to take out the grams of the previous ingredients or you just take out your calculator and do the minus

  3. Take a look at 8000kicks, the first waterproof cannabis sneaker.
    Absolutely amazing shoes, I really love them. 🍁🔥
    I tried coupon code „8000“ and got 10% discount. 😍

  4. I’m sorry but I have to unsubscribe. I can’t afford all these different ingredients you have in each video. I remember in the beginning of your channel the ingredient list was simple and easy to find. I started this natural diy skincare journey to put less chemicals in my body.

  5. Yay making this tonight! I made two lotions recently and ended up being allergic to them both so I need to try again. Ugh. Have autoimmune issues and I’m suddenly allergic to things I used for years with no previous problems (I think I’ve narrowed it down to Tamanu oil and Squalane). This one looks quite healing and calming so 🤞🏻

  6. Why are you adding the allantoin in the cool down phase (doesn't give it a grainy feeling?) I've personally never had it crystalize on me but it could be because I don't live in a cold area.
