I would like to share a book that would be great if you are wanting to make your own soap or looking for some new ideas. The book is called Smart Soap Making
Here is a great recipe for lotion bars for the dry winter season
Orange Honey Lotion Bars
1 1/2 Tablespoons of raw honey
2 ounces jojoba wax flakes
2 ounces shea butter
2 ounces coconut oil
1 tablespoon olive oil
6 drops of orange essential oil
1. In a double boiler, melt together the beeswax, shea butter, and coconut oil until they become a smooth, uniform liquid.
2. Turn the heat off and add the olive oil, honey, and essential oil drops.
3. In a muffin tin lined with five cupcake liners (reusable silicone works great!), ladle the mixture evenly between the lined cupcake wells.
4. Allow to set (or harden) on the counter for 7 to 8 hours, or pop in the fridge to speed up the process.
(this recipe makes 5 bars)
