Frosted Cranberry Bath Bombs

Bath bombs are an every year “must make” for me as I have several lovely people (mostly my mom) on my giftee list that adore bath bombs. Once I settled on this year’s themes, I knew the bath bombs would have to be Frosted Cranberry themed because they could actually be made to look like frosted cranberries! Bring on the spherical mould and frosty micas!

Frosted Cranberry Butter Balm

If you find you often like the idea of body butter more than the reality of it, I think you might just love this formulation. It’s creamy and silky with a gorgeous dry-touch finish that’s surprisingly powdery (in a good way!). You (and your giftees!) will be delighted with how light yet moisturizing this Frosted Cranberry Butter Balm is. Swoon 😄

Candlelight Body Cream

A theme centred around rich, indulgent, glowy goodness definitely needs a rich body cream, and this one fits the bill beautifully. Not only does it moisturize, hydrate, and soothe, but it also contains an all-natural active to help even out skin tone and reduce dark spots and hyperpigmentation!

Candlelight Creamy Hand Wash

This silky, shimmery Candlelight Creamy Hand Wash is like a cozy hug for your hands every time you use it. As soon as I had decided on this year’s holiday themes, I knew I needed to include a Candlelight themed creamy, shimmery, gentle hand wash as I positively power through handwash and cooler days always send me towards creamier, richer formulations. I had a lot of fun developing this formulation, honing the method and getting the surfactant blend just right. The finished formulation is all kinds of silky, shimmery, and sudsy—and it makes a great body wash, too!

Almond Oat Emulsified Body Butter

We’re continuing our Almond Oat theme today with this perfect-for-autumn Almond Oat Emulsified Body Butter ❤️ Silky almond oil and rich shea butter star in the oil phase, with moisturizing and soothing oaty goodness from colloidal oatmeal and hydrolyzed oat protein. This emulsified body butter is a happy medium between lighter emulsions, like lotions and creams, and heavier anhydrous products like body butters and balms. It’s perfect for the darker, cooler days that are setting in here in Calgary. Let’s get emulsified!

Wedding Cake Bath Bombs

These sparkly, fizzy bath treats were inspired by a best friend’s wedding cake ❤️ She asked for bath bombs as part of her wedding gift, and I thought making some that “matched” her wedding cake would be fun 😄 The resulting bath bombs aren’t a perfect match (the cake definitely tastes better!), but they still smell great and transform bath water into a silky, sensuous treat. Enjoy!
