      Ingredients

      Scale
      • ⅔ cup unrefined coconut oil
      • ⅔ cup pure shea butter

      6. Add the essential oil and whip again until fully blended and fluffy

      Notes

      You may be expecting a big lather. This homemade shaving cream does not lather. It’s more like a cream or lotion-like texture and should be applied as a thin layer.

      Body Butter

      Coconut oil is one of my most favourite ingredients, and it so happens to be the star in this homemade body butter. Combine with beautifying essential oils and shea butter, and you have a silky, smooth cream that will give your skin some much-needed softness, particularly during this winter season.

      This recipe makes a reasonable amount, which is why I like to pour it into three little tins, so that I can stash one in my purse as well as a having a few extras in the bathroom cabinet.

      Beeswax Wraps

      Beeswax Wraps
      These beeswax food wraps are an easy-to-make, environmentally friendly alternative to plastic cling film (gladwrap)  They are so easy to fold and seal around food or a bowl to keep food fresh and protect from pests.

      Wraps can be washed in cool, soapy water and re-used, however, as they can't be washed in hot water, don't use them to cover fish or raw meat.
