Handmade presents vol. 2

I put a lot of effort into making this christmas a homemade one. Of course not all my gifts were made by hand, but a lot of them were.
In december I had a rather intense assembly-line gift-making of soap, cream, toffees, bath salt and lavender bags. Yup. The toffees were actually the hardest thing to get right.
Here’s a gritty picture displaying our finished batch of gifts:

The cream is the perfect stuff for red baby-bottoms, sore noses and cold-inflicted hands, and, well, just about everything else. I’ve even used it as shoe polish. Heh. No but seriously, I make several LITRES of this every year, and give it away generously.

The recipe is dead-simple.
3 parts olive oil
2 parts shea butter
1 part beeswax

Melt the whole lot in double boiler. Pour into a clean container.

And that’s it! You got to admit that’s easy, right?
The recipe is my adaptation of Sisse’s Olive creme, which can be found in Danish here: http://www.maisha.dk/node/88
