Put WHAT on my lips?

OK - you all know that I'm a soap girl. Nothing pleases me more than making soap. The other "stuff" that I make, although I like making them, they don't make my heart leap. That said, lip balms has to be one of the most uninteresting things to make (in my opinion) - but maybe that has something to do with my disinterest in making them in pretty colors or my inability to make pretty labels.
Soooo, a few months back I decided that if I was going to continue making lip balms, I would at LEAST make some interesting flavors.

I came up with Turkish delight - which is a combo of roses and chocolate. If you've even been to Europe or Australia you'll know exactly what a Turkish Delight candy bar tastes like. There was a time that I had to have 1 bar every day otherwise I didn't feel complete!

I also made Parma Violet - yes it sounds strange but I have to tell you, violets have the most delicate perfumey taste that's just so lovely. When I wear this one I feel like a victorian lady sipping tea in my parlor. Where's my lace hanky?

Plum Preserves was next - yep, just like that. Tastes like an old fashioned jar of home made plum preserves. Juicy, ripe and delicious!

I have more coming up soon so watch this space, or you could just watch my shop......
