If you’ve ever suffered from eczema then you understand how awful it can be. Finding relief from over-the-counter topical eczema treatments, however, can be a challenge. Often times, I’ve found, these products make my eczema worse. This natural eczema treatment is different.

Natural Eczema Treatment for Real Relief from Eczema & Dry Skin. This natural eczema treatment knocks over-the-counter eczema creams out of the water. Formulated using only natural ingredients that offer relief of inflammation, itching and dryness, my natural eczema relief balm recipe offers real relief for your eczema or dry skin - with or without essential oils. Learn how to make an eczema repair balm recipe now an eczema remedy that really works! #eczema

Formulated using only natural ingredients known for their ability to help relieve inflammation, itching and dryness, my natural eczema relief balm offers real relief for your eczema or dry skin – with or without essential oils.

The struggle to find a natural eczema treatment that works.

You may remember my anti-aging serum recipe I shared two weeks ago. The carrier oils used in that serum are also incorporated into my natural eczema treatment. So if you’re looking for more ways to use those ingredients, this natural eczema relief balm is the perfect recipe!

While I’ve been lucky and haven’t struggled with eczema since eliminating most dairy products from my diet, not all of us are able to escape our eczema through diet alone. In fact, my dear friend Cathy, recently had her eczema flare up so badly, she ended up with open wounds from scratching. And, like most of us, she went through an array of over-the-counter eczema treatment products. None of which actually offered any relief from her symptoms. A few of them, in fact, actually made her skin burn. While others made the itching worse.

As I had plans to meet up with Cathy for Wine & Art Wednesday, I quickly threw together a natural eczema remedy for her irritated skin. My natural eczema relief balm worked fabulously on Cathy’s eczema. While the anti-aging serum (sans the essential oils) I also created the same day, did wonders for the eczema on her face.

Crafting a natural eczema relief balm recipe.

Since making my natural eczema treatment for Cathy, I’ve revised my natural eczema relief balm recipe three more times. The recipe I’m presenting you with today, is the result of those changes. This natural eczema remedy has the consistency of a rich, creamy beauty balm. It fully absorbs into skin after about a minute or so. In addition to soothing itchy and inflamed skin, it also moisturizes and protects skin while still allowing skin to breathe.

I formulated my natural eczema treatment with essential oils. However, if fragrances or essential oils irritate your eczema, you can simply omit them from my natural eczema relief balm recipe. The remainder of my eczema repair balm is made up of other primarily plant based, natural ingredients with the exception of lanolin and beeswax. These ingredients include skin conditioning shea butter and murumuru butter as well as rosehip seed, moringa seed and borage carrier oils. 100% vitamin E oil is also added for its ability to promote healing.

About the ingredients in my natural eczema treatment.

Every ingredient used for my natural eczema relief balm was chosen with care for its ability to remedy eczema. Following are details on the skin care benefits of some of these ingredients.

Borage Oil

Borage oil is one of the key ingredients in my natural eczema relief balm much like my anti-aging serum. It offers a variety of natural skin care benefits especially for those who suffer from acne, eczema, skin reddening and rosacea. This natural oil is suitable for even the most sensitive skin and is a superior moisturizer. A common treatment for dry skin and cradle cap, borage oil helps fight skin inflammation and dryness to promote skin health. (Learn more about borage oil here.)

Moringa Seed Oil

A nutrient dense carrier oil, moringa seed oil is another prize ingredient for my natural eczema treatment. Like borage oil, it has anti-inflammatory properties when used in skin care. While naturally occurring antioxidants help promote cellular turnover for healthy looking skin. Its incredible moisturizing properties help to hydrate maturing skin as well as ease the symptoms of eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis. (Discover more ways moringa seed oil is commonly used here.)

Murumuru Butter

Murumuru butter, similar to the carrier oils used in my natural eczema treatment, is also rich in essential fatty acids. It also contain pro-vitamin A. This makes this natural butter a popular product in anti-aging skin care formulations. In addition to its moisturizing properties, murumuru butter promotes moisture retention making it an especially useful addition when used for dry skin and eczema remedies. (Learn how to make a murumuru sugar scrub recipe for eczema and dry skin here.)

Manuka Essential oil

Manuka essential oil, like manuka honey, comes from the leaves of the popular New Zealand plant by the same name. This essential oil is non-toxic, non-irritating and non-sensitizing, making it suitable for all skin types. This also means it won’t irritate eczema prone skin. Like the other ingredients in my natural eczema relief balm recipe, this essential oil is also anti-inflammatory. It is commonly used to offer relief for itchy skin and dandruff, rashes and common skin diseases. (Learn more about manuka essential oil, and how to make a natural manuka deodorant recipe, here.)

Now that you know a little more about the natural ingredients that went into my natural eczema treatment, let’s get started making it!

Ingredients:

3 oz. unrefined shea butter
1 oz. emulsifying wax
1.5 oz. murumuru butter
.75 oz. cosmetic beeswax
.5 oz. rosehip seed oil
.5 oz. borage oil
.5 oz. pharmaceutical grade lanolin
.25 oz. moringa seed oil
.05 oz. vitamin E oil
20 drops manuka essential oil
20 drops patchouli essential oil
10 drops lavender essential oil

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients for this natural eczema treatment.

Begin by weighing out the shea butter, emulsifying wax, murumuru butter, lanolin and beeswax. Combine the ingredients in a double boiler and heat over medium low heat until all the ingredients have melted.

Turn off the heat. Then weigh out the rosehip seed oil, borage oil and moringa seed oil. Stir into the melted butters, waxes and lanolin. Now remove the ingredients from heat.

I used a combination of 2 oz. glass amber jars and 1 oz. white polypropylene thick wall plastic jars.

Allow your natural eczema relief balm to cool completely. Once it has solidified, screw the caps onto your containers.

Usage:

To use your natural eczema treatment, simply massage onto affected area as desired. Allow the balm to sink in. (This may take a minute or two.) Then reapply as needed throughout the day.

Wet wrap therapy for moderate to severe eczema.

For really bad eczema, I also recommend using this natural eczema relief balm in conjunction with wet wrap therapy. Wet wrap therapy is another natural eczema treatment for moderate to severe eczema.

Eczema wet wrap therapy creates a physical moist barrier for your skin. When used in conjunction with an eczema relief balm or cream, it helps the moisturizer penetrate skin more deeply. This natural eczema treatment can significantly improve your skin’s condition in as few as two days. Learn more about wet wrap therapy for your eczema, along with instructions, here.

When I was a little girl I used to pick the leaves from weeds to make play salads for my parents. What I didn’t realize then was that those leaves I picked were actually edible! It wasn’t until many years later, long after I stopped making dirt pots and grass dolls, that I discovered that the weed I was so fond of, was actually an herb. That herb was plantain.

Plantain is a common broad-leaf herb commonly mistaken for a weed. This healthy, hardy plant can be found in backyards across North America and is nutritionally similar to dandelion leaves. Used medicinally by cultures around the world, plantain is a common herbal home remedy for both nutritional and topical skin care applications.

What is Plantain?

Plantain is a common broad-leaf herb commonly mistaken for a weed. This healthy, hardy plant can be found in backyards across North America and is nutritionally similar to dandelion leaves. Used medicinally by cultures around the world, plantain is a common herbal home remedy for both nutritional and topical skin care applications.

Nutritional Benefits of Plantain

Plantain leaves are best consumed while still young and tender. They have a nutty asparagus like taste that is delicious when pan fried or when added to salads. A naturally healthy herb, plantain leaves offer the following nutritional support (source):

  • Maintains healthy cholesterol levels
  • Can offer relief from irritable bowel syndrome
  • Calms irritation from constipation or diarrhea
  • Offers relief from hemorrhoids
  • Helps with indigestion and ulcers
  • Supports healthy kidneys and bladder function

You don’t have to eat plantain leaves to enjoy their nutritional benefits, however. You can also get herbal support through tinctures for cleansing & detox. Or enjoy a natural herbal tea made using organic dried plantain leaves.

Plantain Infused Olive Oil! Plantains have anti-inflammatory,analgesic and anti-microbial properties. Because of this the plant is well suited at soothing insect bites and superficial wounds in addition to promoting healing. It also contains allantoin which is used to help with skin regeneration making it an excellent component in formulations created to help reduce the appearance of scars.

Skin Care Benefits of Plantain

In addition to nutritional support, plantain leaves are also lovely when infused in a carrier oil for topical skin care applications. There are a number of natural skin care products that would benefit from the inclusion of plantain herbal oil. These products include after sun moisturizers, burn relief balms, creams or lotions for eczema or dry skin, and anti-itch salves for insect and spider bites.

Dr. Christopher’s Stings and Bites, for example, is a top selling plantain ointment. It’s crafted with natural herb constituents like plantain leaf, extra virgin olive oil and beeswax to reduce and relieve the pain, swelling and itching caused by insect stings and bites.

Due to plantain’s herbal skin care properties, it’s often used as a key ingredient for the following topical skin care applications to promote skin health:

  • Minor burns and sunburns
  • Minor cuts, scratches and lesions
  • Rashes and skin inflammation
  • Psoriasis and eczema
  • Dry or chapped skin or lips

Formulating An Herbal Plantain Salve Recipe

Mountain Rose Herbs has a new roasted cocoa butter available that I really wanted to try. So I was really pleased when it arrived at my doorstep last week. This stuff smells amazing. I love that it’s suited for both food and cosmetic use.

As it smells so wonderful, however, I really wanted to create a product that would highlight the natural scent of the roasted cocoa butter. I also knew I wanted something to create a natural skin care product that would be suitable for seasonal skin care and gift giving. Therefore, in the end, I opted for crafting a simple plantain salve recipe with a cocoa mint scent.

I love the simplicity of my natural plantain salve recipe. It’s formulated using just five simple ingredients – roasted cocoa butter, plantain herbal oil, beeswax, rosehip seed oil and peppermint essential oil. The cocoa mint scent, of course, is naturally derived from the inclusion of the organic peppermint essential oil and roasted cocoa butter.

Roasted Cocoa Butter

The roasted cocoa butter wafers from Mountain Rose Herbs aren’t deodorized. Therefore they retain their natural cocoa scent. Expeller pressed from the roasted seeds of the cocoa tree, these cocoa butter wafers are naturally rich in vitamin E. They can be combined with cocoa powder to make chocolate, but also make a nice addition to recipes for lip balms, body butters, homemade soaps and salves.

Plantain Herbal Oil

While plantain herbal oil is easy to make, you can also enjoy the convenience of buying pre-made plantain herbal oil. This is especially helpful if you’re wanting to make natural skin care products using plantain herbal oil right away. Or if plantain is out of season throughout the cold winter months.

I used plantain herbal oil from Mountain Rose Herbs for my simple plantain salve recipe. An emollient oil formulated using solar infused plantain olive oil and vitamin E, this herbal plantain oil is especially nourishing for dry hands and skin. Crafted with certified organic Plantago major leaves, this natural herbal oil is perfect for gardeners, wild harvesters, climbers – or anyone else who works with their hands frequently. I also like to use this herbal oil, as is, on my dog’s minor cuts and irritation for a simple and safe natural remedy for his skin.

Rosehip Seed Oil

As I have both maturing skin, as well as skin that tends to dry out more in the winter, I also used rosehip seed oil for my plantain salve recipe. While this may shorten the shelf life of your salve somewhat, I highly recommend this unique carrier oil for its essential fatty acids. Popular in natural anti-aging skin care recipes, rosehip seed oil offers marvelous hydration for dry skin and a quick absorption rate. It can also be used solo as a natural daily facial cleanser or hydrating oil.

Beeswax

A key ingredient in homemade salve recipes, beeswax gives this plantain salve recipe its thick, rich texture. It also acts as a natural skin protectant while still allowing skin to breathe. In addition to its skin protectant properties, beeswax is also a humectant (meaning it attracts water to hydrate skin) and helps to temporarily reduce and soothe itching.

The beeswax pastilles from Mountain Rose Herbs have a deep, golden color and aroma. Globally sourced from less-developed countries like South America and Africa, their beeswax helps sustain the local economy of these areas while using traditional (less-modern) processing techniques.

Peppermint Essential Oil

A sweet, candy-like scented peppermint, the organic peppermint oil from Mountain Rose Herbs helps bump my simple plantain salve recipe into peppermint patty like status. This naturally steam distilled, certified organic essential oil has a fresh, very minty, hot, herbaceous fragrance with a vegetative back note. Perfect for all types of recipes including cleaning sprays, perfumes, aroma mists and natural skin care, this is a truly aromatic essential oil.

Peppermint essential oils is commonly included in natural skincare recipes and homemade salves and balms for topical pain relief, its anti-itch properties and the cooling sensation. It also supports circulation and can calm acne inflammation.

Simple Plantain Salve Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

1 oz. roasted cocoa butter
1 oz. plantain herbal oil
1 oz. beeswax
.5 oz. rosehip seed oil
20 drops peppermint essential oil

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients for my plantain salve recipe. In addition you’ll also need a one or two cup heat safe glass measuring cup (such as Pyrex) and a utensil to stir your salve. I typically use a fork. You’ll also need containers for your plantain herbal salve. I used 1 oz. metal tins with rolled edge covers.

Once you’ve gathered the ingredients and supplies you’ll need, you’re ready to begin.

Start by weighing out the roasted cocoa butter wafers and beeswax. Combine in a heat safe glass container. Then heat either on the stove top using the double boiler method or in your microwave at 30% power until halfway melted.

Next, weigh out the rosehip seed oil and the plantain herbal oil. Add these ingredients to the same container as the cocoa butter and beeswax. Continue gently heating the ingredients until all of the ingredients for the plantain salve recipe have completely melted.

Once melted, remove the plantain salve mixture from heat and stir to combine. Then stir in 20 drops of organic peppermint essential oils.

Now pour your plantain herbal salve evenly into five 1 oz. tins. Allow the salve to cool completely then pop on the lids and it’s ready to go.

To use, simply apply to affected area as desired and massage in. You can also keep my plantain salve tucked inside your purse to use a natural cocoa mint lip balm throughout the year.

If desired, you can decorate the lids of your tins. I used nature stickers from Art By Sharell to decorate the lids of my plantain salve containers. However, washi tape also makes a fun addition and makes a simple, yet pretty package decorating idea.

Should you wish to sell the products you make from my plantain salve recipe, there is important information that you need to know if you live in the United States. Not only do you need to follow all FDA guidelines for labeling your products, you’ll also need to refrain from making any medical claims in regards to said product. It can all be very confusing. However, Marie Gale has a great book, titled Soap and Cosmetic Labeling, that can help steer you in the right direction.

My dad recently made a trip to the hospital only to discover he had several clogged arteries. Two arteries were partially blocked, while a third was blocked completely. Lucky for him medicine is advancing.

The doctors were able to clear out the two partially blocked arteries at our local hospital without surgery. However, my dad is headed to UVA later this month to have the fully blocked artery handled. Roto-rooter style. Seriously. Apparently doctors are now able to clear out clogged arteries completely. So bypass surgery, for my dad at least, won’t be needed.

With my own set of health issues along with some recent weight gain, I thought it was time I scheduled a doctor visit as well. So yesterday I visited my physician to have my thyroid checked along with a panel of blood work to check my cholesterol and basically everything else.

As I’m already a few years into my forties, it seemed like a good idea regardless of the weight gain. I mean if there are changes I can make now to avoid being in my dad’s shoes when I’m 70, then I’m all for it.

Of course my doctor had questions for me. As he’d prescribed medication for anxiety the last time I’d been there, and I’d recently gone off that medication on my own, he got the mini life spiel. This included the divorce and of course my current financial struggles.

Being a single woman – especially a divorced single women – can be hard. We are often at a financial disadvantage. Men are often the breadwinners in a marriage. While this isn’t true in all cases, it was in mine.

Not only had I recently ventured into full time self-employment, but while married I racked up a bit of debt to furnish the house and so forth. So when my husband and I split I lost his share of  income. I not only had substantially more debt than I did going into the marriage, my expenses also tripled. After all, I needed a place to live.

I’m sure there are many of you who have gone through similar situations. Even if you’ve never been married, women’s wages still tend to be lower than men’s. And I can’t even imagine the staggering amount of student loan debt many of you have if nothing else.

As a DIY blogger my lack of disposable income of course becomes an issue. Gone are the days of wine induced online supply shopping. Instead I’ve been slowly using up my dwindling supply of bath and beauty ingredients.

My natural soap and skin care recipes have started to become simpler with a nod back to some of the more common ingredients used in skin care. And I’ve become more conscious that there is a need for quality, budget friendly recipes. This simple 3-ingredient matcha all over moisture stick recipe is just that.

DIY Matcha Moisturizing Stick! This budget friendly DIY for crafting your own matcha all over moisture stick recipe is a simple skin care solution that really works! Homemade with just three natural ingredients, this moisturizing stick nourishes, conditions and protects skin all over your body - lips included!

Simple & Affordable Natural Skin Care

Inspired by the MYMATCHA All-Over Moisture Stick from cocokind, my matcha all over stick recipe contains the same three ingredients as the original – organic virgin coconut oil, organic cosmetic beeswax and organic matcha green tea powder.

Packaged in eco-friendly, biodegradable paperboard push up tubes, my matcha all over moisture stick works great as a spot treatment for dry hands, feet and elbows. It can also be used as a moisturizing lip balm, an eyeshadow primer, an under eye balm and a dark circle corrector.

If you’re allergic to coconut oil, you can still make my matcha all over moisture stick recipe. Simply substitute the coconut oil with organic babassu oil. (For more information on making substitutions in your homemade natural skin care recipes, I recommend the book, Carrier Oils: A beginner’s guide to using over 40 carrier oils in bath and beauty recipes, by Cari Dunn.)

Following you’ll find my recipe for making your own natural matcha all over moisture stick. I hope you enjoy it as a much as I do. Don’t stop there however. Keep reading after the recipe to learn where you can buy the MYMATCHA All-Over Moisture Stick from cocokind at a discounted price.

Palmarosa Lime Natural Body Balm Recipe for Dry Chapped Skin

This palmarosa lime natural body balm recipe helps to protect, soothe and replenish dry chapped skin with natural ingredients like oat butter, hemp seed oil and lanolin. Making it the perfect addition to your natural skin care routine for your dry skin or eczema. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of the natural ingredients used in my natural body balm recipe. Plus learn how to craft your own nourishing natural skin care products for your self care beauty regimen.

This palmarosa lime natural body balm recipe helps to protect, soothe and replenish dry chapped skin with natural ingredients like oat butter, hemp seed oil and lanolin.

Palmarosa essential oil’s antiseptic, antiviral and antibacterial properties combined with neem oil’s natural antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties make this soothing balm especially nice for cracked hands or feet. It also works well to help soothe skin suffering from a shingles outbreak. (I unfortunately suffered from a shingles outbreak late last year so I say this from experience.)

Oat butter and hemp seed oil soothe dry skin while lanolin helps to lock in moisture and add a layer of protection from the elements.

This palmarosa lime natural body balm recipe helps to protect, soothe and replenish dry chapped skin with natural ingredients like oat butter, hemp seed oil and lanolin.

I also used arrowroot powder in my natural body balm recipe so it wouldn’t feel greasy and would absorb more quickly.

If you don’t mind using silicones in your products, cyclomethicone will also cut down on that greasy feeling you get with natural body butters as well as help to give it a smooth, silky feeling when applied to skin. As cyclomethicone is a synthetic lab developed product, you would need to omit this ingredient from the recipe to keep it all natural. Otherwise, with the cyclomethicone, your final product will be 97% natural.

You will need to use a digital scale to weigh out all of the ingredients for my natural body balm recipe.

Begin by weighing out the waxes and oat butter. Combine in a double boiler and heat until melted. Then weigh out the lanolin and stir into the melted mixture.

Remove from heat and weigh out the hemp seed oil – or substitute with rosehip seed oil or jojoba oil – the neem oil and the cyclomethicone, if using.  (The cyclomethicone should be added at below 125°F.) Stir into the melted body balm.

Weigh out the arrowroot powder and stir it into the body balm as well. Combine thoroughly.

Finally weigh out the essential oils and mix them into your body balm.

Pour the liquid body balm into your containers of choice. My natural body balm recipe will make enough body balm to fill a 10 oz. container. (I used an 8 oz. low profile jar and a 2 oz. jar for mine. Alternately you could fill five 2 oz. jars.)

This palmarosa lime natural body balm recipe helps to protect, soothe and replenish dry chapped skin with natural ingredients like oat butter, hemp seed oil and lanolin.

Allow your body balm to cool and solidify completely then screw on your lids.

To use simply apply liberally as needed to affected areas as desired.

If you are making this natural body balm recipe for yourself or to gift a simple way to create labels is to apply washi tape around your container. Then create a text label in a Word program or Photoshop with a simple rectangle border around it, cut it out, and apply it over the washi tape! One of my favorite places to shop for washi tape is Cute Tape.

If you are making this natural body balm recipe to sell, be sure to label your containers appropriately to meet state and federal laws. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

Unicorn Body Butter Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

1.5 oz. sweet almond oil
1 oz. fractionated coconut oil
1 oz. emulsifying wax
1 oz. sal butter
.15 oz. skin safe fragrance oil of choice
1 teaspoon arrowroot powder
1/4 teaspoon each of three mica colors of choice
3/8th of a teaspoon flashing pearl, shimmer pearl or silvery white pearl mica

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to make my unicorn body butter recipe. A regular kitchen or postal scale will work for this particular project, however I specifically use a Baker’s Math Scale. (I recommend this scale if you are making soap or plan on doing a lot of bath and body projects in the future.)

Begin by weighing out the sal butter and emulsifying wax. Combine in a large glass Pyrex measuring cup, then melt in the microwave at 50% power. (Alternately you may also use a double boiler.)

If you don’t have sal butter or prefer to use another butter, you can also use refined shea butter or mango butter in place of the sal butter. (Sal butter is a great substitute for shea butter for anyone who is sensitive to shea butter or has a latex allergy. Sal butter is a superb moisturizer and is believed to help with various skin disorders such as acne, eczema and psoriasis. It can also help to reduce skin inflammation. In addition, its chemical composition makes it especially suited for hard lotions.)

Using a measuring spoon, measure out one level teaspoon of arrowroot powder. Stir or whisk into the melted sal butter and emulsifying wax until the arrowroot powder has dissolved and there are no clumps.

Next, weigh out the sweet almond oil and fractionated coconut oil. Stir or whisk into your DIY unicorn body butter mixture.

You can substitute the sweet almond oil with another carrier oil if desired such as grapeseed oil. Just be sure it is liquid at room temperature. If you are substituting the fractionated coconut oil, choose another liquid at room temperature dry oil for best results. Other dry oils I like are rosehip seed oil and hemp seed oil.

If you using a fragrance oil, weigh out and stir in the fragrance. (You can also use an essential oil or essential oil blend of your choice. In this case, use .05 oz. of essential oil.)

Now divide the DIY unicorn body butter base into three containers.

Using a measuring spoon, add 1/4 teaspoon of your first mica color to one container of the unicorn body butter. Stir well to combine. Repeat with a 1/4 teaspoon of the next mica color in the second container, and then add 1/4 teaspoon of your third mica color to the last and final container, mixing after each addition. (Please note you do not want to use lake dyes for this project.)

Now add 1/8 teaspoon of your flashing pearl, shimmer pearl or silvery white pearl mica to each of the three colors. This will give skin a very subtle shimmer. For more obvious shimmer, increase the amount used to suit. Stir each container well to ensure all of the mica is thoroughly combined in each container.

Once the individually colored unicorn body butters start to solidify from a liquid state, stir again. Then scoop one of the colors into your container(s) so it fills 1/3rd of the container(s) you are using.

Now use a mini spatula or the flat side of a knife or a spoon to swirl the top layer of the DIY unicorn body butter . Finally, dust the top of your unicorn body butter with the Diamond Dust, white or pearl mica.  Allow the unicorn body butter to completely set up, then gently smooth the tops with the back of a spoon. Screw on the lids to your containers. Your completed unicorn body butter recipe will have the consistency of a cream or thick lotion.

You’ve now made your own DIY unicorn body butter! Yay! For this project I used a 100 mL wide-mouth cosmetic style screw top jar from Infinity Jars. These jars are really cool, not only because of the awesome color – they are made from a deep violet glass that looks black – they also offer an airtight seal, filter out UV light and are scent proof. I had enough of the unicorn balm left over to also fill three 10 gram/mL lip balm pots.

If you’d like to label your DIY unicorn body butter, you can easily create your own DIY stickers or labels using clipart and a word program. I am personally crushing on this watercolor chubby unicorn clipart from Antler and Twine. (Don’t forget to purchase a commercial license if you plan to sell these using clipart you’ve purchased.)

My friend, Bambi, helped me make this awesomely fun project. She was also my “hand” model! In addition to helping me with my own projects from time to time, Bambi also makes and sells her own beaded jewelry in her Etsy shop, Happy Tree Frog Studios. I hope you’ll check it out! (Psst. She also modeled my DIY Anti-Puff Eye Roller for tired, puffy eyes and under eye bags. You can find that recipe here.)
