I really like swirl design in a bar of cold process soap.  There are different ways to achieve this technique but Four Faux Funnel Swirl Design from Lovin' Soap was a small batch of soap that they try out a simple technique.  The funnel swirl technique can be done in a loaf mold, slab mold or even a cylinder mold.

Black Cherry Merlot Wickless Candle Melt

I have heard of wax melts that you can use on a ceramic piece.  But if you do not want to go that route, I found this interesting project from Wholesale Supplies Plus called Black Cherry Merlot Wickless Candle Melt. This is a great and safe way to enjoy candles without lighting a wick. You can place this 4 oz tin on a coffee or candle melter,  As the the wax slowly melts, it will fill your room with a wonderful scent of Black Cherry Merlot.

Peppermint Lip Scrub

I love the flavoring of peppermint.  What about you?  If you love it like I do, then you should check out this recipe for a lip scrub from Point Of Interest called Peppermint Lip Scrub. What is really interested about this recipe is that the author took normal white sugar and put it into a coffee grinder.  What did the coffee grinder do to the sugar?  According to the author, it turned into a very small crystal berry type sugar.  I thought that was interesting.

Neem & Lavender Oil Mask

Photo by From Nature With Love
According to The Natural Beauty Workshop, Oil Cleansers are great for deep cleaning pores and refreshing skin.  Even with the most simplified formulas, oil cleansers can help dissolve built up oils and free clogged pores, but when specialized ingredients are added, these simple recipes can provide targeted benefits for specific skin types. I would not think that oil cleansers could do that.  I guess I suspicious since I have only skin.  If you would like to try a new recipe, Neem & Lavender Oil Mask from The Natural Beauty Workshop.
