Give your hair some love
Your hair, just like the rest of your body, also needs some love and attention. When it comes to helping your hair look healthy and vivid, you always want to keep your hair products 100% natural and pure. By creating your own hair products, you are minimizing the chances of damaging your hair with chemicals no one can even pronounce, you know exactly what is going into your products, and you also have the liberty to add any natural ingredients to suit your personal needs. You can use a good amount of shea butter with 2-3 drops of a fresh-smelling essential oil in your hair once a week for a deep condition, or every-day in small doses for an all-day pop.
“ROSY KISSES” Lip Balm
- 2 tablespoons of InterBio’s cocoa butter
- 1 tablespoon of InterBio’s shea butter
- 1 tablespoon of dried rosebuds
- 3 drops of your favorite essential oil (use rose oil for a romantic vibe)
- 2 small containers to keep your lip balm in (you may need more or less depending on their size)
On very low heat, melt the shea butter in a small stainless steel bowl or pot. After the butter is liquid, add your roses and stir well. Allow to steep (on very low heat) for around 1 hour. Strain mixture into a bowl through a fine-mesh strainer. Wipe out your original heating vessel. Pour the colored butter back in, and return to your low heat. Add the cocoa butter and stir until it’s all melted. Remove it from the heat, add the essential oil and stir to mix. Transfer to a small container and let set for 3 hours (or until completely set).
