How to Make a Natural and Pure Vegan Multipurpose Balm

How to Make a Natural and Pure Vegan Multipurpose Balm

All welcome

Balms are truly versatile and so easy to use!  A good balm can be used as a lip protector, dry skin barrier, nappy rush soother, brow tamer, frizz fixer, cuticle softener and a cracked heal rescuer! A bit of a knight in shining armour, there should be one in every handbag! 😉


Balms are also fun to make! But which recipe should we go for? If you have ever tried to follow one of the online recipes you might have been lucky or it could have been a disaster. We get asked all the time ‘Why did my balm end up with that gritty texture?’, ‘How do we make it glossier?’,  ‘And how do we make it vegan…? I’ve tried and it was very hard!’ It’s time to get it all sorted and for all the questions to be answered.


Join us for this informative hands-on half-day workshop and leave with a foolproof recipe and a handmade sample of a vegan multipurpose balm!
