Hello gorgeous people!
After opening my eyes about the bad ingredients the “beauty industry”was using in our daily products, I started to make my own. I am a fervent user of lipbalms, I was so crazy about them that I started to bring one back from every country I was traveling to ahah! Until I started to make my own and stopped the crazy addiction!
Honestly, since I’ve been using natural homemade lipbalms, my lips are better. I don’t need to put on lipbalm all the time anymore, the natural and good ingredients help my lips being moist and healthy. They regulate themselves better and don’t dry out because of bad ingredients. Yes, It’s a vicious circle, apply bad lipbalm will feel good for a little bit until your lips need more because they don’t get feed well enough to be healthier. You get my point, I stop my rant and get to the recipe!

Hello Natural Friends!
I haven’t talked about solid shampoos in english yet. I’m gonna make it right with you because solid shampoos are amazing !
What is a Solid Shampoo or Shampoo Bar?
A Solid Shampoo is exactly almost like your usual organic shampoo except it’s solid (like a soap) and it’s more practical and more economic. Practical because it’s easy to carry it with you and travel with it. It’s small and doesn’t leak ;) More economic because it takes a long long time to finish one and it doesn’t cost a lot to make (or buy).

Blanc vs vert: le vert contient de l’huile d’olive.
