12 Days of Christmas: Minty Layered Bath Salts

It has been awhile since I have made bath salts since I rarely use myself or know to many people who have time to soak in the tub. But if you know people who do like to soak in the tub, you may want to check out this recipe for Minty Layered Bath Salts from The Soap Queen.  This recipe is from her 12 Days of Christmas.  If you missed any of the recipes, I have been posting them religiously or go to The Soap Queen's website.

12 Days of Christmas: Whipped Champagne Shea Butter

The Soap Queen has a really great series going on called the 12 Days of Christmas.  I have posted most of them already but I wanted to share each and every project that is posted. The next project posted was a Whipped Shea Butter recipe.  According to the posting this recipe is rich and creamy that helps protects the skin from the harsh elements and restores moisture.  Shea butter is a medium hard butter that begins to melt upon contact with your skin.  When it is whipped, it becomes light and fluffy in texture which makes it easy to apply.

12 Days of Christmas: Green & Red Wax Melts

For those who are candle crafters, The Soap Queen recently posted Green and Red Wax Melts in her 12 Days of Christmas Series.  She has not forgotten about you in this posting because these wax tarts are great alternative to candles.  They are flame free and easy to make.  These wax melts will fill your home with scents in minutes. All you need to do is simply place the cube on a warmer tray to melt the cube to release the wonderful fragrance.  These wax melts would be great holiday gifts.
