Beard Oil

  • 0.6 g tea tree oil
  • 0.16 g Fragrance oil

Formulating your own wedding favour recipe

You don’t have to use every single ingredient I used in mine. These were just down to personal preference and inspiration from my favourite crafter

Lipbalm

Lip balm is simply a mixture of 3 parts oil and one part wax. If you choose to use a butter-like Shea butter, for instance, you can make a really great lip balm by mixing one part butter, with one part oil and one part wax.

Happy formulating!

Beard oil

Most beard oil ingredients have a carrier oil and a rich essential oil. Your recipe should have:

  1. A carrier oil like sweet almond oil (gotten from vegetarian sources with neutral smells)
  2. a good moisturising oil like coconut oil (I used Jojoba)
  3. Any oil with exceptional properties (I used tea tree oil)  Tea tree oil is an excellent hair treatment known for unclogging pores. This will be great for men who have razor bumps.

Candle

You can create any fragrance and colour of your choice by mixing and matching. For instance, you can make mango candle by mixing soy wax with mango fragrance oil and colour it yellow.

One of the cheaper ways to colour a candle is to use crayons. Peel off the paper and add as much as you wish.

I favour soy wax candles over paraffin wax for many reasons; longer burning time and more natural being some of the reasons but soy wax is difficult to find in certain countries.

Extra tip

You can easily make label stickers with your home printer by creating an easy design on Canvas and printing on label stickers

Which of these wedding favours will you be making?
