Chocolate Lip Butter

Out of all the things I’ve made that I have to frequently remind myself not to eat, this Chocolate Lip Butter is pretty high up that list. It smells downright delicious, and leaves my lips oh-so wonderfully soft and hydrated. And did I mention that it smells exactly like high end chocolate and is pretty much irresistible? This stuff is great.

Spice Infused Body Butter

Every Christmas my mum fills her slow cooker with cranberry juice, orange slices, a few fistfuls of whole spices, and some magic to create a wonderful warm Christmas punch. This spice infused body butter is inspired by that wonderful punch, and by how it made the house smell as it simmered away.

Creamy Cocoa Body Truffles

These adorable little body truffles make fantastic gifts, though I would definitely advise informing recipients of their non-edible nature sooner rather than later. A core of creamy peppermint-spiked shea butter is encased in silky smooth cocoa butter, making for a rather lovely treat for the skin.

Everyday French Green Clay Bar

Last September Margo, a reader and fellow clay aficionado, commented to tell me about this clay bar she used to buy at Sephora. It was just straight clay, in bar form, and it was nearly $50. Yipes! Margo quickly figured out that she could make her own for a lot less, and I loved that idea. It’s taken me a while to get to it, but here we are. This French green clay bar is spiked with some of my favourite face mask goodies, and I think you’ll like it.
