It’s December, and time to start thinking about Christmas gift ideas. Therefore, I have some DIY Christmas gift ideas I want to share with you today.
A great idea could be to make homemade skincare products, whether that be for your mom, sister, aunt or grandma. And I have a few recipes you can use for making just that.
I hope you could find some inspiration for some homemade Christmas gift ideas. And, Merry Christmas to all of you!
If there’s something I really love to do, it’s to make my own skincare products. And I’ve already created a bunch of them and shared them in here with you guys, but if you are new to this blog, then here you have some recipes for homemade skincare products!
By making your own skincare products you will know exactly what is in them, and you can customise them to fit your skintype. You can play around and try different ingredients, fx try using jojoba oil instead of almond oil. Put less of some of the “butter” in it and more of the liquid ingredients if you like a more liquid consistency in your products. You can really play around and find what fits you and your skin type. Some homemade skincare products are also the perfect idea for a present to your friends, sister or mom!

It’s Monday and time to reflect at some everyday happiness which I experienced the past week. I’ve had a lovely past week filled with DIY projects, great talks, and watching a documentary together with my parents and much more! How was your past week?
The past week I made a cleaning spray consisting of only water and white vinegar, easy peasy!
I also made some homemade lip balms, which you can find the recipe for right here
I’ve been planning and reflecting a lot. I know 2018 is going to be one amazing year!
I’ve been eating deliciousy healthy food! I watched What the Health once again this week, this time with my parents <3
I had the most delicious hot chocolate on coconut milk at Souls, together with the most lovely, passionated talk about so many different things together with Cirkeline <3
After a visit to Souls, we went straight across the street and visited the most beautiful little store called The Organic Club, which both sells brand with a sustainable focus and secondhand clothing – loved it, definitely worth a visit!
Today it’s going to be all about how you can make your very own natural and moisturising lip balm! It only consist of 4 ingredients and it is super easy to make.
If you haven’t noticed it yet, then I can tell you that I love to make homemade skincare products. This time it was time to make homemade lip balm. I can absolutely not take credit for the recipe as I’ve mainly just followed ones I’ve found on the internet, but I’ve left out any kind of essential oils and just added some vitamin E oil. That is just my preference to leave out essential oils since I often find that lip balms can get too perfumed, and I actually just prefer the smell of more discrete and natural ingredients such as coconut oil and shea butter, this just smells divine, if you ask me!
- 2 tbs of shea butter
- 1 tbs of coconut oil
- 1 tbs of beeswax
- A few drops of vitamin E oil
This amount fills 4 of these small tin containers.
How to do it
You put all the ingredients into a doubled boiler and wait for it all to melt and mix. Pour it all into small tin containers, I bought mine from Naturligolie.dk, and then put them in the fridge for about 1/2 hour. Easy peasy, now you’ve made homemade natural and moisturising lip balm!
“This is also a lovely little gift idea, which you can either give alone or you can make a little gift basket filled with homemade body butter, a body scrub and lip balm!
