Do-it-yourself beauty recipes are both great for the soul and for the environment. Our selfcare recipes aim to inspire a moment of calm at the end of a busy day; combining plastic-free, natural ingredients and investing some time in yourself to leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvinated. These recipes focus on wellbeing, easing stress and ensuring calm.

Bath Salts for Glowing Skin

There's nothing quite as relaxing as a bath, with the natural magnesium in the salts perfect for soothing muscles. Rose, geranium and chamomile essential oils help to calm irritated skin and leave you with a glowing complexion. Simply combine the carrier oil with the essential oils and mix through the salts and dried flowers. Add half a cup of the mixture loose into your bath and soak. If you'd rather not sit in amongst the flowers, fill a cotton bag with your mix and leave it to infuse as you relax.

Lavender Calm Balm

If you find yourself rushed of your feet at the moment, mix yourself up this simple calming balm. Apply to pressure points and take a minute to yourself to breathe and reset. This also works great if you're struggling to get to sleep, or if you've got particularly bad menstrual cramps - just rub on your lower abdomen to soothe muscles.
