GREEN UP YOUR LIFE

Hayfever Nose Rub

29th June 2018

 Words by Jessica Peace

WHAT’S THE RUB?

You can rub this balm on your hooter and catch the pollen before it gets up your nose!

CHOOSE YOUR SCENT

We like lavender, chamomile, lemon, peppermint, tea tree and eucalyptus; choose one or mash up a few - they are all cooling, soothing and hay fever bashing.

GOING BALMY

Stuff you’ll need:

1 Tablespoon Beeswax (you can buy it grated or in pellets from health food shops)

Half a Mug of Organic Coconut Oil

Your Essential Oil (you’ll need between 20 - 40 drops - we like it strong)

Containers (a little jar or pot you can shove in your pocket or bag)

The Kitchen (we’re gonna put it all in the melting pot)

So…

Melt your coconut and beeswax in a pan

Mix it up and let it cool

Add your essential oil

Mix, mix, mix

Pour into your tubs and let it set
