Cranberry Orange Tinted Lip Balm

Deep red cranberries lend themselves beautifully to a Christmassy tinted lip balm, so it’s no surprise that this lip balm hit my to-do list as soon as I knew one of our holiday themes would be cranberry orange. Today’s silky tinted lip balm gives the lips just enough colour that you don’t have to apply it while looking in a mirror (watch the video to see it in action!), and the semi-sheer red hue is universally flattering. The making part is super easy so you can easily whip up a batch in no time—these beauties make great stocking stuffers (try tying a tube to a candy cane!) and are sure to be a fast favourite among anyone lucky enough to receive a tube 😄

White Chocolate Peppermint Body Butter Bars

Once I decided that White Chocolate Peppermint would be one of our holiday themes this year, I knew I’d have to do a White Chocolate Peppermint Body Butter Bar. Ever since my very first order of cocoa butter arrived at my dorm well before Humblebee & Me existed, I have loved rubbing cocoa butter on my skin. For these body butter bars, I’m pairing cocoa butter with some extra silky, fast-absorbing ingredients to create something special and highly giftable.

Cranberry Orange Christmas Soap

Today we’re kicking off the 2019 holiday making season with our first Christmas soap and the launching of our first 2019 Christmas theme—Cranberry Orange! This theme will be starring ingredients like juicy-smelling cranberry seed oil, cranberry seeds, orange essential oil, suitably hued micas and pigments, and possibly some of the actual foods as well. This swirly cold-processed soap features cranberry seed oil, cranberry seeds, orange essential oil, and some beautiful micas to create some lovely swoopy swirls.

Sweetgrass Gradient Swirl Soap

Today we’re continuing our sweetgrass series with a beautiful Sweetgrass Gradient Swirl Soap, featuring soft swirls that gradate from a reddy copper to pale cream, much like a sunset. The top is dolloped and swirled, with some shimmery mica whorls and a dusting of gold sparkles. I’ve left these bars unscented, choosing to channel the theme by focussing on warm, golden hues inspired by dried sweetgrass and its sunny, sweet scent.

Rosé Whipped Body Butter

I am straight-up smitten with the whippy texture and skin feel of this Rosé Whipped Body Butter. It’s fluffy and rich (like marshmallow fluff!) in the jar, but starts to melt quickly on skin contact. It glides across the skin lightly before absorbing in a flash, leaving skin soft but not greasy. It smells fabulous, is a very fun pink colour, and is generally very fun. It makes a great gift as well as a fabulous treat for yourself. Let’s get whippy!
