I gave out bags of bathroom goodies this year for christmas so I thought I'd share (I'll put the soaps in an extra topic). Also blogged about: http://tidytipsy.wordpress.com/2009/12/28/christmas-goodies/
Citrus and Lavender Bath Bombs with lots of yummy cocoa butter and almond oil:


I did the lavender first and found out my colors (it was supposed to be purple) don't dissolve in oil. So for the citrus one I dissolved the color in a little water first before adding it. Other than that it was really easy and everyone loved them  Grin. Definitely a fast and fun gift!

Chocolate lip balm, with real milk chocolate and lots of almond oil, cocoa butter, jojoba oil, honey, beeswax etc.:

Turned out a little soft, the butter and honey really melt the instant it touches the lips. If I do a summer version I'll try taking more beeswax and less oils.

I used recipes from a german site but if anyone is interested I could try to translate the ingredients.
Thanks for looking Smiley

Thank you  Smiley

Here's the link to the lipbalm:http://beautyjunkies.inbeauty.de/index.php?ind=rezepte&op=entry_view&iden=152

I did translate it for someone else already though, so here's my translation as well:
Chocolate Lipbalm
   10ml almond oil
   8g beeswax
   7g chocolate (a little piece)
   5ml olive oil
   5g shea butter (I took cocoa butter)
   10ml jojoba oil
   a small teaspoon of honey
Put everything except the honey  in a small heatproof glass or bowl and heat up, stirring until everything dissolves (the beeswax can take quite some time to melt). Stir in the honey and pour into little containers or tubes.
Notes from me: I heated mine using a hot water bath for the bowl and put it in the fridge after pouring it in the tubes to make it harden more quickly.

Thanks for sharing the recipe!  What modifications would you make (you mentioned it was a little soft)?  I've never made lip balm before.
