After inventing Shea Butter Body Meringue and sharing it with everybody, I was eager to try some variations on the theme. That is, a thick, luxurious lotion with lots of air whipped into it for a decadent, fluffy, final product. This cocoa butter body meringue is my first such variation.

This is my third clay bar, and I’m pretty excited about it. Like previous bars it’s mostly clay, but this one is held together with diluted liquid soap instead of water, giving us a bar that’s a hybrid between a bar of soap and a clay bar. It’s pretty neat.

When you want to add a bit of colour to something, there’s a lot to consider. What colour do you want? Do you want opacity along with the colour? How long do you want the colour to last? What is the end use of the product? And let’s not forget the all-important solubility. I often get questions about using one colourant instead of another in recipes, so I thought I’d write an overview on the different types of colourants I use, why I choose them, and what they’re best suited for.
This sweet, smooth lip balm is downright delightful. It’s like a trip to a local café in a vibrant new city. New York, perhaps, or London. The smell of rich coffee mingles with sweet vanilla and mouth watering cocoa. A touch of optional shimmery swirl makes for a positively enviable tube of lip balmy goodness.
This quick-to-assemble liquid soap mixes all the best parts of Egyptian Magic with a gentle liquid soap base to make for a bee-riffic honey kissed hand soap.
Egyptian Magic is made from just six ingredients—olive oil, beeswax, pollen, honey, propolis, and royal jelly. In my DIY version I make the royal jelly optional for accessibility’s sake, dropping that number to five.
