Step 4: Experimentation Time!

Picture of Experimentation Time!

Now that you have mastered the basics, try adding essential oils, or use coconut oil (Melting point 76°F/24°C) instead of/in addition to the almond oil, hide a present in the middle or whatever else you can think of.

Orange Peppermint
10 drops orange extract
5 drops peppermint extract

Chocolate Coconut
2 Tbs coconut oil (do not use almond oil and reduce cocoa butter by 1 Tbs)
10 drops chocolate extract

10 drops lavender extract
3 drops peppermint extract

Note: If any of your additions are heavier than the melted cocoa butter, allow it to sit out at room temperature until it is about the same viscosity, then stir well.  Otherwise, the other ingredient(s) will settle at the bottom.

Hmm...I feel like I should re-imagine this Instructable with some CGI...
