A Perfect Base to make your own natural cosmetics

Anyone who has been to one of our workshops can attest to how fun and simple making this recipe is- great for rainy afternoons or an alternative to colouring/ baking with kids:

  • 1 heaped tablespoon Shea butter – mash with back of spoon until smooth
  • 2 heaped tablespoons Kitchen oil of choice ( Coconut, hemp or olive) -add in mix with spoon and then whisk until light and fluffy ( around 10 mins)
  • Add 6-9 drops of your essential oil of choice ( or 3 drops of 3 mixed together) holding at eye level to control flow. Fold in with a spoon, decant into a glass jar and leave to cure in a cool dark place for up to a week.
