Lavender Valentines

This year I decided to make lavender goat milk soaps and lavender lip balms for the valentine exchange at work.  I melted soap base and added lavender essential oil before pouring it in heart-shaped molds.  To make lip balm, I mixed sweet almond oil, beeswax, aloe vera and vitamin E with laveder essential oil and a little bit of stevia for sweetener.  I used a fun paper to make labels for the tubes of lip balm, and then wraped them up with the soaps in a piece of tulle tied with ribbons and a heart-shaped tag.  I hope everyone at work likes them!
