Soap and lip balm recipes

Whenever I see soaps at the markets I am always drawn to them. They smell so delicious with different benefits and make such good gifts. Whenever I have nice soap I always find them too good to use but can only have so many undies drawer soaps. I have seen some great recipes on the net but have never given them a try. I would love to make some as gifts even if it's just using the melt and pour glycerin.

I really want to give these pantry soaps a go. Made from everyday pantry items they seem easy but still so effective.
"Honey-ginger (for each cup of glycerin, add 1 teaspoon honey and 2 pinches ginger);cinnamon-clove (2 pinches cinnamon, 2 pinches ground clove): Oatmeal-honey (use only clear glycerin in this soap; add 1 teaspoon honey, 2 pinches ginger, 2 teaspoons oatmeal); Honey-ginger; and chamomile (1/4 teaspoon chamomile tea)."
