  1. I’ve got the sniffles here. And I really want choolate just because I cn’t go outside and get it (and because it is so yummy!). Then I read your blog post and want chokolate even more! And i want to make those candies. But that’ll have to wait a bit, cause I’m not sure if I could just.. not eat them!

    Btw, love this post. It’s perfect. Love you!

  2. Cool! These are a lot like my cleansing bars ( http://www.lisaliseblog.com/search/label/Cleansing%20Bar ) and I got the idea from Lola Zabeth -( http://www.lolazabeth.com/category/hair-care-recipes-cleansers/ ). Just goes to show how many different ways there are to make your own variations on a theme – love the candy idea.. YUM!

    Where did you get your heart mold?  I have some plastic candy molds (I know bad..bad) but am looking for something better.  Also, when you made the ones using the foil candy cups did you put them in a mini muffin pan so they would set up?  Thanks!

    These look amazing. I think I will try chocolate and patchouli. Sounds heavenly. Thank you for sharing these recipes!

  5. Heather :) :) :)

    Wow, these look fantastic…and so good, they almost look edible :) :) Thanks for the recipes :) :) Where did you find your citric acid? That is one product I always have a hard time finding. I actually wanted to use that in a dishwasher powder recipe. Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

    Thanks for a great idea! I can’t wait to make some!

    Could I replace the jojoba oil with something different like almond or avocado? I’m allergic to jojoba (dumb allergy, I know. It’s like being scared of kittens!)

    They look sooooooo lovely (good enough to eat), can’t wait to make some!!!   What would you think of adding a little honey- do you think that would be messing with a good thing or making it even better? 
    You. Are. Awesome!

  8. I know I’m not the first to say this, but YUM… they totally look good enough to eat AND make me really want chocolate right now! Maybe I could eat chocolates WHILE bathing with Bath Candies? Hello decadence!

    Am in the process of whipping some up now! (my kids call it Mommy’s witchcraft…haha) Ummm… may sound like a silly question, but how does one use these? Rub on in the shower? Drop in the tub? help!

    • Yeah, you can scrub them on while in the shower, or why not in the tub, on wet skin and then rinse off :)

      Wonderful recipe! You can also slip one in the foot of an old nylon stocking and tie the stocking over the faucet in your bath for a lovely, decedent soak…that way you won’t have the dried herbs (if you used them in your bath candy) in your bathtub, less clean-up…

  10. I LOVE this idea…what a perfect Valentines gift to make for friends. I know what I’ll be doing this weekend – thanks!!

    I. Love. This.  Thank you for sharing it!

    These are FABULOUS!!!! Made the Rosecafe and Choco-orange…. love too much. I hate to have dry skin, but hate applying lotion more. This was fast, easy, and I stepped from my shower all soft and ready for the day. Back to the kitchen!!!

  13. Someone

    I wonder if you could make a chocolate vanilla mocha “flavored” one if you made it with vanilla extract, cocoa powder, and coffee. hmm…

  14. Mrs.Ernbo

    Have been having a great time making these! Ummm…. just a comment here… tried orange and cinnamon….. smells great! Burns like fire…if you are fair skinned or sensitive, don’t try this one. I know, I know, should have thought that one through a little more. Cinnamon oil is a bit more “warming” than I would have liked… haha

  15. Funky Fairy

    Made the white chocolate rose…turned out so pretty, thanks for a wonderful idea!!
     I used some little Whilton silicone hearts made for making mini cupcakes, worked out great!!  Got them on salle, and have never used them for cupcakes.  I will be using these to use as little gifts added to a Valentine basket with vintage Valentines, pearls, dream pillow, sachet and some herbal tea. Yea!

  16. noaa

    you can do cinn/clove and add ground nutmeg for scrubbies! smells awesome!

    hmmm, these might be cool to keep at work. I drink water all day which equals frequent potty trips which equals washing my hands a lot which then equals dry hands. rub them on my hands after i wash might keep them from getting dry and irritated. hmmm the possibilities! Love all these ideas!

  18. Oh by gosh! Just made the coco orange in little silicone Christmas tree shaped ice cube trays. They smell soooo good and look like little chocolates. I can’t wait to give them away with my other hand made body care items as gifts. I used some on my hands and they are all silky smooth and lickable smelling.

    Did a peppermint-mocha that was absolutely fab! peppermint eo, coco powder and coffee grounds in the center with the citric acid and a little ground oatmeal.

  20. Morbid_pet

    A question about the citric acid. Can I use thee same as the one sold at walmart for canning tomatoes ( http://mobile.walmart.com/m/phoenix;jsessionid=A1DD6A4C50AC2624B6B85A6EE48FDDE9#home)

  21. Jennifer

    Will these melt? I’m thinking of making some for my booth at the farmer’s market… I need non-melting ideas!

  22. I delight in, cause I discovered exactly what I used to be having a look
    for. You’ve ended my four day lengthy hunt! God Bless you
    man. Have a nice day. Bye

  23. Nic

    These are great!
    I’m curious, how long do they last? I would guess each one is a single-use deal?

  24. Its intense blue color nuances are acclaimed by women and complement most complexions and eye colors.
    In fact, candies will be the the most appropriate gift item that may be made available to
    every age group. A quote by Albert Einstein about greed; “Three great forces rule the entire world: stupidity, fear and greed.

  25. If you would like to take much from this post then you have to apply such methods
    to your won web site.

  26. I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any
    interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
    Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a
    lot more useful than ever before.

  27. Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my
    blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains.
    If you know of any please share. Cheers!

  28. I’ve long known coffee to be a great morning boost for energy. I never thought that coffee can be an ingredient in preparing a relaxing bath. This is a good article to share to the beautiful women I know who takes good care of their bodies inside and out.
