Kukui Nut Oil Lip Balm DIY
Have you ever used the kukui nut in any of your body products? I have not tried it yet but according to The Soap Queen, it is commonly used in massage and face oil because of it is lightweight and does not leave the skin feeling greasy. The kukui or the candelnit tree is the state tree of Hawaii and the residents of our 50th state have used it for many years, In this recipe from The Soap Queen called Kukui Nut Oil Lip Balm from The Soap Queen also has another tropical ingredient - Coconut Oil.
I have a B.A. in Mass Communication and took my first melt and pour soapmaking class in 2002. Since then I got hooked making my own bath and products. I have taken various courses in Soapmaking (Melt & Pour, Cold Process, Hot Process), lotion making (lotions, creams, lotion sticks), bath products (bath salts, body scrubs), body products (lip balm, body butters, body balms, whipped butters) and more. Most of all of my classes were taught by Lori Nova of The Nova Studio in Point Richmond, Ca. I have taught courses since 2004 at various locations. I have worked as an Event Coordinator at Michaels Redwood City.
