Good Arvo Bloggee’s and Bloggette’s! How the devil are ya?
Today I have a most wonderful lip balm recipe for you inspired by the coming of Spring (yay!). Its called Bronze Goddess Tinted Lip Balm and I think you’re going to love it! It is super moisturising and will leave a subtle bronze tint on your lips so pucker up and enjoy! 🙂
You will need:
A suitable lip balm tube or pot to put your lip balm in
2 tsp. beeswax
2 1/2 tsp. coconut oil
1/2 tsp. cocoa butter
1 tsp. mango butter
1/2 tsp. vitamin E oil
1/2 tsp. castor oil
1 tsp. sweet almond oil
1 tsp. kukui nut oil
1 tsp. aloe vera oil
1/4 tsp. amber mica powder
A few drops of an Essential Oil (try to stay away from using Citrus Oils though as most are photosensitive which means that they are sensitive to the exposure of sunlight)
Combine all butters and oils in a double boiler and melt them over gentle heat. Once all ingredients have melted remove pot from heat. Add essential oil if desired and then add the amber mica. Stir to blend well. Pour the mixture into pots or tubes. Let them cool and set.
Here’s another totally gorgeous, natural FREE skincare recipe for you to try at home! Our Rose Glow Mask Recipe is a simple but effective way of giving your skin some much needed and well deserved TLC. The Manuka honey in the recipe will leave your skin clean and silky smooth, while the combination of both the Rhassoul and Kaolin clays will absorb any impurities and give your skin lots of beneficial minerals and nutrients. This is a great recipe that leaves your skin with a lovely, healthy glow and of course it smells wonderful too which is a bonus 😉 Try it out and let me know what you think!
Ingredients 1 tbsp Manuka honey 1 tsp Milk (whole or goats milk, or you can use powered milk) 1/2 tbsp Rhassoul clay Rose Floral Water 1/2 tbsp White Kaolin clay 1 tbsp. Rose petal powder 5 drops Grapefruit pink Essential Oil 1 drop Rose Essential Oil Rose Floral Water Grapeseed Oil (optional)
Instructions Mix the dry ingredients together: The clays & rose petal powder together with the powdered milk (if using). Add the Essential oils and a few drops of Grapeseed oil if you tend to have dry skin Then mix in the honey, milk and floral water to make a paste. The honey gives the mask a nice smooth texture and keeps the clay from flaking & crumbling. You can also add a tsp of honey powder to enhance those benefits. Apply in a circular motion. Leave on for 20 min. or so, then wipe off gently with a wet, warm flannel. Follow up with a little bit of Coconut Oil to moisturise. Wonderful!
