Great gifts: Homemade Lotion Bars and Lip Balm: made with only coconut oil, olive oil, beeswax & essential oil. (Blogger's original recipe was crisco and veggie oil BUT in the comments, she says she made it with CO and OO and it turned out beautifully. So, use same recipe but sub in CO & OO.) None of the yucky chemicals, parabens, formaldehyde, petroleum, etc. that you'll find in store-bought lotions and absorbs into the skin wonderfully.
