BALM BASE

Arriving mid December. A lovely rich balm (similar to the RESTORE balm) perfect for feeding dry or summer skin. It provides a lovely nourishing layer that will last on your skin, locking moisture in. Perfect if your skin is a little on the dry side like mine. A soft to the touch Balm that’s best kept in a cool location, like the bathroom. For firmer balms add a touch of wax to firm up.

Unscented & ready for you to add your own signature oils to your liking, like sweet citrus oils for an everyday moisturizer, peppermint for an invigorating lip balm or citronella to ward off the summertime bugs!

USE

This Balm is good for all the things! Use is as a basic moisturiser, lip balm, foot treatment, hair treatment or hand saver. A small amount goes a long way with this balm which will leave a soft slight sheen to your skin & lock in moisture.

INGREDIENTS
Organic Unrefined Shea Butter, Organic Coconut oil, Virgin Hemp oil, Candelilla wax - ready to add your own essential oils if you wish!

ADDING OILS GUIDE

Essential oils are very powerful & less is more.  The below is a guide only & specific needs & concerns must be taken into consideration.

Adults

1% dilution per 10gms of balm = 2 drops - Use on face

2.5% dilution per 10gms of balm = 5 drops - General body use

** Use a 1% dilution on children age 2-10, facial applications, the elderly or sensitive skin - always stay on the conservative side when using oils. 

Please check the oils are ok for the application before using ie some oils are photosensitive & cannot be used on areas that would be exposed to sunlight.

Testimonials

I recently purchased a baking mat and soap bag and are very happy with both items, especially the soap bag, such a great alternative to using body wash especially for the environment. My order arrived with a lovely note, which was a kind personal touch. Highly recommend One Small Step to anyone wishing to buy quality products from a friendly business!

Nicole

These baking mats are so amazing. You can use them for cakes to roast veggies! The best part is that when you are finished they are so easy to wash. I already need to buy more! I really loved that my order had plastic free packaging and compostable parcel satchel.
