Sweet Orange & Calendula Lip Balm

Lip balm is great.  Here is a recipe from The Natural Beauty Workshop called Sweet Orange & Calendula. This recipe has the soothing benefit of calendula and the cheerful scent of sweet orange which comes together in this buttery soft lip balm recipe.  After seeing the picture of the finished product, I really like the lip balm container.  When I make another batch of lip balm, I plan to purchase some.

Easy Bath Bombs (Bath Fizzies) Using a Moon Cake Mold Press

When I saw the picture, they reminded me of cookie presses.
