Christmas is around the corner and gift-giving can sometimes be a challenge. Here at AEO, we are all about natural and sustainable gifts. Here are some easy ways you can create low tox gifts for friends and family this Christmas using one of our recently stocked natural ingredients - Beeswax Pellets.
Beeswax is a beautiful ingredient which can be used to create a variety of products. Aside from being an effective choice for beauty products such as lip balms, body lotions and salves it can also be used to create handy home care products like reusable beeswax covers to replace store bought cling film. Some of the many benefits of using Beeswax include its non-allergenic properties which provides wonderful skin protection from various airborne allergies. Beeswax also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities which provide a magnitude of benefits to the body.
Reusable Beeswax covers
A fantastic alternative to disposable single use cling film. To package, fold them up and secure with a gorgeous ribbon or even use them as the wrapping paper for a two in one gift.
Lotion Bars are a great simple gift which can easily be customised to a Christmas theme by using Christmas shaped moulds. Tailor the bars to your personal needs using the perfect combination of essential oils, shea butter and beeswax. Lotion bars help to soothe skin, lock in moisture, and even have natural anti-wrinkle properties.
Beeswax lip balms are soothing, nourishing and can also provide a little shine. Create unique Christmas gifts by adding essential oils or natural colourant such as beetroot powder or cocoa powder.
Unlike candles made from other types of wax 100% beeswax candles burn brighter and cleaner as they emit negative ions that are known to help purify the air. Without any added scents the candles smell naturally aromatic from the honey and flower nectar that’s found in the honeycomb.
