New & Improved Lip Balm

lipbalmAfter finding another recipe for lip balm, I decided to try it out and make two batches, one using lavender essential oil and the other using peppermint essential oil. I also bought some lip balm tubes for easier application and am just ecstatic with the results!

I love this lip balm! With the added ingredients of cocoa butter and vitamin E oil it is very moisturizing and leaves my lips feeling luxuriously soft. Both the peppermint and lavender smell equally wonderful. I use the lavender at night before bed and the peppermint during the day for a little pick-me-up.

Ingredients: sunflower oil, cocoa butter, beeswax, peppermint or lavender essential oil, vitamin E oil.

Lavender Flower Soap

Lavender soap, bars and a ball

This was my very first batch of soap and features one of my favorite flowers and scents, Lavender. The flower buds dispersed throughout serve as a lovely and calming exfoliant. My whole bedroom smelled like Lavender as these bars sat out curing. It was wonderful!

Ingredients: olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil, lavender flower buds, lavender essential oil.
