Valentine's is fast approaching this week. This is why Sunday's crafternoon was a Valentine's themed one. I'd prepared a couple for lovely little projects that could be handmade (with love!) and given to someone special this Valentine's.
So first off, the crafternooners had to select a heart cross stitch pattern which I had drawn out on graph paper with a felt tip pen.
100g cocoa butter
50g shea butter
50ml almond oil
2-4 drops of essential oil (we used lavender, lemon and bergamot)
Small paper cases
Decorations (we used dried lavender, lemon zest, rosemary and earl grey loose leaf tea)
In a plastic jug melt the cocoa butter in the microwave. Then add the shea butter and melt it too. Remove form microwave and allow to cool a little. Add the almond oil and your essential oils.
Pour the mixture into your paper cases. When the mixture goes cloudy (20 mins or longer if mixture is still hot from microwave) you can add your decorations such as lavender or lemon zest.
