The wind is blowing, the snow is snowing and your little nose is just so cold and irritated. Don’t fret! We have the perfect solution to help keep your ‘Rudolph nose’ from making an unsightly appearance. The soothing qualities of calendula, oat, and aloe will help alleviate and gently moisturize any chapped skin you may have. Plus, it makes a great addition to those care-packages you may be sending out this holiday season.
What You’ll Need:
0.7 oz White Beeswax
0.7 oz Shea Butter
1 oz Calendula Infused Sweet Almond Oil
2 drops Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil
2 drops Egyptian Geranium Essential Oil
10 drops Carrot Extract
10 drops Oat Extract
5 drops Aloe Extract
5 Slidey Lip Tins
**If you are not local, you can get all of this and more at Bramble Berry! They will ship directly to you!**
In a jar, add 1 oz dried calendula herb and completely submerge with sweet almond oil. Place it in a crockpot full of water. Be sure the water doesn’t spill into the jar.
Place on low for 8 hours. This creates a hot infusion of calendula into the oil.
After the hot infusion is done, pour the oil in a different container straining it so you don’t get any calendula herb in it. Then, weigh out the beeswax and 1 oz calendula infused sweet almond oil and heat in the microwave on 30 second bursts until the wax is completely melted.
*You will have sweet almond oil left over, pour into a container and use for another project!*
Once the wax is melted, add in the shea butter. Microwave again on 15 second bursts until the butter is melted.
Now you will add in the extracts and the essential oils. Once added, stir until completely incorporated.
Pour into the slidey lip tins and let fully solidify.
With this cold weather we’ve been having, your nose might feel a little bit chapped. Rub some of this ointment on it for amazing healing and soothing properties!
For the month of December, take 15% off all bases!
