The Garden Apothecary - Herb Nerd Hacks
Chamomile & Jasmine Skin Cream
What does a herb nerd use to keep his skin healthy? Chamomile!
Chamomile flower may sound more familiar as a humble herbal tea, but it boasts a little something called bisabolol that is soluble in oil and has gentle anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant properties.
In this video I show you how to extract it, plus a whole heap of other active compounds, into an infused sweet almond oil that can be used to create a thick, moisturising skin cream for daily use.
Cinnamon Sting Lip Balm
Fuller lips done naturally? Cinnamon is the herb to do it, with its circulatory stimulant properties helping to increase blood flow to the area and plump things up a little — plus provide a tasty little tingle along the way!
See how you can make your own "Cinnamon Sting" lip balm from only a few simple, natural ingredients. And if you want to know more, 'The Garden Apothecary' is coming in July 2017! Click here to find out more.
