So, other then making soap, I love to make these cocoa butter/ beeswax/ shea butter/ aloe lotion bars. I have really sensitive skin that tends to dry out quickly, and these work much better for me then regular lotions.

    All I do is mix 1 pound of cocoa butter, 1/2 each of shea butter and beeswax, and two tablespoons of aloe. I melt it all over a low heat, add fragrance, then toss it into molds and then into the freezer. I usually moisturize at night after my bath, since I feel all greasy for about an hour afterwards. In the morning I wake up feeling silky and lovely, and I smell like chocolate and creamsicles. Smiley

  Every time I do these, I try to color them with MP soap colorants, and it never works. I just blot of that weird orange oil with a paper towel. No harm done. c:

Ooh very lovely! Sounds like a perfect idea just in time for winter. Smiley

Have you tried Majestic Mountain Sage's Lip Balm Colors as a way to color them? I think they look perfectly lovely natural, but if you wanted to do funky colors those might work better for you as your bar is essentially similar to lip balm. Just a thought!

I'm glad everyone likes these! I really recommend you try them out, they're  great. Cheesy My mom and sister love these. They work out nice as gifts, too.

   Nymeria, I'm going to try that, thanks! I think I did just make giant things of lip balm, lol.
