"Shower people" don't know what they are missing with this little goodie!! A "kissing cousin" to the bath bomb, these truffles are basically melted cocoa butter mixed with other ingredients that has been solidified back into nice little shapes. These truffles were one of my biggest sellers when I had a toiletry business and are probably one of my absolute favorite "bath stuff". My customers would come back to me and say that they no longer had to use candles to scent their bathrooms, when they had these little truffles!!!! Detailed instructions are included with possible scent blends to choose from. Conversion of gram to ounce: 1 ounce = 28.4 g
I found this recipe in my local paper. The tomato acts like an astringent to tighten pores and remove excess oil, while the honey is a natural moisterizer that softens the skin. While trying to post this there was some issue with the tomato, it should be one green tomato, just incase it shows up as zero.
For babies and adults alike suffering from rash and itchies. Calms and soothes. This recipe came to me from a skin care instructor suffering from keratosis pilaris aka those tiny bumps on the upper arms you get in the cold months.
This recipe makes 12 12-ounce gift jars, plus a bonus of 3 to 4 cups extra bath salts (you could use them for stocking stuffers...but I always have to 'test' mine). You can use a large stand mixer (like a KitchenAid) to mix the salts. You could use a different essential oil/essence. One of my favorites is to make a strawberries & cream jar. Use Strawberry essence/essential oil and red dye (I still make the layers). I'll then attach a tube of facial cream to the jar lid. One year I dehydrated some thinly sliced strawberries and scattered them among the layers--that came out beautifully!
Escape into tranquillity and pamper yourself and give to friends that need to unwind. Epsom salts will soothe tired muscles, while gently softening the water for a luxurious bath experience. Glycerin a skin moisturizer can be found at health food stores, some drug stores, or major department stores depending on where you live. Its also available on the Internet. I used Epsom, salt but feel free to use Sea and or Kosher Salt. I made this for my DD's Bridal shower as favors. I upped the recipe to 20 pound of salts. Placed yellow and blue (wedding colors) salts in 50 wine glasses topping with plasic wrap which you can't see and then topped with satin trimmed toule held on with thank you ribbon.
Optional: I also placed whole vanilla pods with some salt in a coffee grinder till fine. The aroma's are heavenly!
