Peppermint Cocoa and Marshmallow Cupcakes

I know this will be the third melt and pour soap project that I have posted,but I could not share this Peppermint Cocoa and Marshmallow Cupcake soap project from Wholesale Supplies Plus because they look so delicious. Are you like me to eat these when you smell the delicious peppermint cocoa aroma of these soaps?  I could not and I would give these out as gifts or party favors for the upcoming holiday season.  This is a moderate level project that should take you two hours to make 12 soap cupcakes.

12 Days of Christmas: Chocolate Mint Melt and Pour Squares

I love Andes candies/mints.  It has been a long time since I had some.  But when I saw this Chocolate Mint Melt and Pour Squares Soaps project from The Soap Queen's 12 Days of Christmas series, I just wanted to run to the store and get some. These would be adorable guest soap for any powder room in the home.

Lotion Melt and Pour Cubes

The Soap Queen has been posting a lot of great ideas in her 12 Days of Christmas series.  This recent posting for Lotion Melt and Pour Cubes is a really interesting one.  The project takes melt and pour soap and incorporates a Aloe Lotion base.  But as The Soap Queen says that adding oils and butters to melt and pour bases can be tricky.  Extra oils can cause the base not to set up correctly or inhibit lather.  But guess what?  She has found a way to add Aloe Lotion Base to the Shea Melt and Pour bases to create a creamy, firm bar,  There is an very important step in the process, that I am not going to reveal. You will just have to find out by reading the instructions.  You cannot forget the step or the lotion and the base may just separate.

12 Days of Christmas: Winter Gardenia Ombre Candle

What's up? Need to bring some light into your Christmas Holidays? For those who are into candle making, here is a project that would be great for the holidays.  This Winter Gardenia Ombre Candle appears in The Soap Queen's 12 Days of Christmas series. Any level of candle maker can do this project even though it is ranked for the beginner.  It takes about 5-6 hours to make one (8) ounce candle but it would be a great gift to give.  So if you want to make a lot of these for the holidays, I would suggest you get started soon than later.

Peppermint Pucker Lip Scrub

The countdown in the Soap Queen's 12 Days of Christmas continues with this recipe for Peppermint Pucker Lip Scrub.  This easy recipe lightly exfoliates, allowing the lip balm that you apply soak in better.  So you will have more hydrated and happy lips.  It takes only 30 minutes to make this recipe and you will have enough to give out for holidays!
