Our Favourite DIY Christmas Gifts for 2019

It isn't too late to plan thoughtful, customized and low waste DIY Christmas Gifts for everyone on your list!

From stocking stuffers, to culinary delights, to the perfect beard spritzer; we've got all your gift-giving bases covered.

Rose Honey Lip Balms
The perfect stocking stuffers, and the most hydrating lip balm we’ve ever used!
It’s no secret that we love honey. Honey cleansers, honey face masks, honey body scrubs - we thought we’d tried it all. Then we made a Rose Honey Balm, and the results were to die for. 

DIY Rose Honey Lip Balm
This recipe will yield approx. 12 individual lip balms
20 g Beeswax 
40 g Shea Butter
2 tbsp Natural Wildflower Honey
1 tbsp Vegetable Glycerin
2.5 tbsp Rose Hip Seed or Jojoba Oil
35 drops Jojoba Rose
5 drops Vanilla Bean Essential Oil (optional)
12 Lip Balm Tubes

  1. Over a double boiler, melt down your Beeswax and Shea Butter until they are completely fluid. 
  2. Remove from the heat and add your Honey and Glycerin. Stir vigorously to combine (you may need to place this back onto low heat while mixing, to ensure the elements come together entirely).  
  3. Add your Rose Hip or Jojoba Oil, Jojoba Rose and Vanilla, stirring to combine. 
  4. Before your mixture begins to set, you have to transfer it into your lip balm tubes. Carefully pour the balm mixture into each individual tube and secure the lid.
  5. Leave your full lip balm tubes, standing upright, to set overnight.
