have you ever realised how many of our daily beauty and hygiene products come in plastic packaging? nature provides us so many ingredients, colours and scents to make our own with meaning we can have a bit of fun and reduce our plastic consumption.

 

this was one of the first recipes I experimented with years ago and it has stood the test of time. its an amazing little self-nourish treat or great to give as a handmade gift. 


in hot climates its best to keep these in the fridge as they are coconut oil based, however if you prefer to have a wet mixture, there's no need to refrigerate or roll into the balls shown here.

try your own variation and get experimenting with different colourings and scents.

what you will need:

  • 1/4 cup frozen blueberries

  • 1/4 cup of water

  • 3/4 cup organic fair-trade sugar

  • 20 drops of lavender oil

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil

how to make it:

  • add the frozen blueberries and water to a pan

  • bring to a simmer, stirring and smushing the blueberries as you go

  • once it's a syrup like consistency, pour into a small container

  • put the container in the freezer to chill

  • now mix the oil, sugar and lavender drops together

  • once you blueberry mix has cooled, pour this into the oil mix 

  • get stirring

  • take a tablespoon sized amount in the palm of your hand and roll in to balls
