Coral Lip Balm

This pretty coral lip balm brings a pretty pop of colour and a hint of shimmer to an already awesome tube of lip balm. It’s fun to make and easily tweaked to your preferred shade of coral and level of colour and shimmer—I like it a lot.

Über Anti-Acne Soap

After years of DIYing, I’ve got a pretty good cache of acne-fighting ingredients. From clays to herbs to essential oils, my basement cupboards are a veritable arsenal of zit-busting weaponry, and these bars of soap have it all. They’re designed to clobber zits and stop acne before it starts. They’re also pretty groovy looking.

Candy Cane Body Lotion

This thick and luxurious candy cane body lotion makes a lovely Christmas gift. It leaves the skin soft and slightly peppermint scented, and if you’re looking for a bit of an extra festive hint, you can add a touch of mica for some holiday shimmer.

Liquid Peppermint Hand Soap

After finally getting around to publishing a basic overview on liquid soap, I thought I’d kick off my new litany of liquid soap inspired recipes with a simple peppermint hand soap. This is the type of soap you can pop in a pump-top bottle and use to wash your hands, or use in the shower as a body wash or shampoo. It’s pretty darn all-purpose, and I think that’s awesome.

Red Tiger Balm Pocket Roller

This fantastic little roller has all the punch of Tiger Balm, but without the greasy carrier oils or the smelly, tingling post-application hands. It’s easy to apply at your desk at work (depending on where on your body you need it, I suppose…), and since it has an alcohol base, it dries very quickly on the skin, leaving behind the essential oils to light a fire in your sore muscles and soothe any aches and pains.
