I always get to this time of year and feel like Winter is over when in reality we are smack bang in the middle of it! This is a quick and easy make to help with through the rest of the season by combating chapped skin. A brilliant make for those cold weather dog walkers, gardeners and anyone who has to face the elements! You can personalise this by using your favourite scent, I have stuck to traditional Lavender but really the possibilities are endless!
- A Saucepan
- A glass or heat proof measuring jug
- Suitable jars or tins (I used these 60ml jars)
- Kitchen Scales
- Tablespoon measure
- 42g Beeswax Pellets
- 42g Cocoa Butter
- 114g Olive Oil (any grade)
- 15ml (1 TBSP) Essential Oil (I used this Lavender Oil)
How To Make:
Weigh your Cocoa Butter and Beeswax into your saucepan. Heat gently until JUST melted.
Once heated, remove from the heat and add your Olive Oil to the pan and mix thoroughly.
Add your Lavender Oil and mix thoroughly.
(Note: If the mixture starts to set you may need to apply a little more heat to melt it again.)
Whilst the liquid is still warm, pour into your jars and leave to cool fully before use!
Apply to chapped/dry areas of skin where necessary!
We hope the cold weather hasn’t gotten too much for you, and this little make helps you get through the Winter months. We always love to see images of your creations so feel free to tag them and share them with us so we can check them out!
