Hiya,

Massage bars are fairly easy - you can either just use Cocoa Butter which is very solid even when warm but will still melt on skin or you can add a little of some other butters (The softer the butter the less you should use). A little Shea or Mango is nice. Also a small amount of oil and also maybe some Vitamin E which is good for the skin and can help stop the oils going rancid. Just remember that the less cocoa butter you use the more likely the bar will melt at room temperature or in hot weather.

By bath Sherbet I assume you mean that fizzy crumbly stuff which a lot of people make out of bath bombs that go wrong - you could just make a bath bomb gone wrong!

You need Sodium bicarbonate and Citric Acid and some water or oil. You can use liquid colours (you get a stronger colour sometimes) and I would suggest that you spray the Sodium Bicarbonate with your liquid colour and then let it dry out - you then mix the sodium, citric, oil and fragrance together. It it sets hard just put it in a strong plastic bag and mash it with a hammer.

Hope this helps
