DIY Everything Balm to Soothe, Heal & Moisturise

Our DIY everything balm combines soothing calendula, nourishing cocoa and shea butters, and moisturising coconut and apricot kernel oils to soothe, heal, moisturise and protect skin and hair. This handy allrounder can be used in a range of ways. You might like to use it to soothe dry skin on heels, elbows or knees, as a conditioning lip balm, to soften, smooth and tame flyaways, and to groom your beard. It is quick and easy to make, multipurpose and will last a long time, saving you money and waste. We love a multipurpose product here at Biome. In fact we created a whole line of multipurpose skin care products because we love the concept that much. You can see that range here > Find the recipe to make your own multipurpose everything balm below. DIY Everything Balm to Soothe, Moisturise, Protect | Biome Naked Beauty Bar | DIY Skin Care

DIY Everything Balm



  1. Place the apricot kernel oil into a small glass mason jar and add the calendula petals. Ensue the petals are fully submerged. Put a lid on the jar, shake and leave to infuse overnight. The next day, strain well. You should be left with a pretty yellow coloured oil. Leave aside.
  2. Place another glass jar in a saucepan with about 6cm of water in it. To the jar, add the coconut oil, beeswax beads, cocoa and shea butter. Turn heat to medium and stir until melted.
  3. Once melted, remove from heat and stir in the calendula infused apricot kernel oil, lavender and frankincense essential oils.
  4. Carefully pour into your chosen containers. We have used this tin. Allow to cool completely before closing the lid or sealing.

How to Use

This DIY everything balm is a handy all rounder. Apply this balm to cuticles, to help shape eyebrows, as a lip balm, or smooth a little in the tips of your hair to tame frizz or add gloss. This balm is great for dry heels, elbows, knees and the backs of hands. You can also use it to tame beards and moustaches. Store in a cool dry area out of direct sunlight. This recipe makes enough to fill approximately two 130ml tins.


As with all our DIY recipes, you can experiment to suit your preferences. Many factors can change the end result, including temperature, humidity, light, ingredient quality. Some DIYs can be amended by remelting or adding ingredients, but some cannot. Please read the whole recipe before beginning and remember to have fun!

Biome cannot issue a refund if the DIY skin care product, DIY hair care product or DIY body care product you make using our raw DIY ingredients do not perform as you'd hoped. We will, however, offer a refund if the raw DIY ingredient packaging is broken or leaking, or the ingredient itself appears to be ‘off'.

Before using any raw DIY ingredient for the first time, please first research that ingredient's potential benefits as well as safety precautions and possible side effects. Check with your medical professional if you have any concerns.

If you have severe acne, very sensitive skin, or another skin concern or health condition, we recommend seeking medical advice before using any new product on your skin, whether that be a raw ingredient, a DIY product you've made yourself, or commercially formulated product.

Please exercise caution when using essential oils. If you are pregnant or have any kind of health or skin condition, we recommend you speak to your doctor before use. Essential oils are highly concentrated liquids, so use in moderation. Pure essential oils should never be used directly on the skin and should never be ingested. When using an essential oil for the first time, do a skin patch test. Each essential oil is unique and may not be suited to everyone. Please research potential benefits as well as safety precautions before using any essential oil. Some essential oils may interfere with medication. Check with your medical professional if you have any concerns.
