Recipe: Self love in a bottle

Self love in a bottle anybody?

Honest Beauty Talks is a product from a conversation Maja & Tanja had in 2015 about the lack of self love and self care in the beauty industry. 
Suddenly Maja burst out “I wish we could put self love in a jar!” and that was the birth of Honest Beauty Talks.

This wish is still our guiding star today, and eventhough we haven’t quite mastered it to perfection yet, we still try everyday through our rituals, crystals and aromatherapeutic formulations. We hope you feel it💕

If you want a sniff of our best attemt of the scent of self love, try this perfume recipe from our book and pink face balm diy box.

  • 1 drop of helichrysum essential oil
  • 3 drops of cacao absolute
