Have you been looking for a way to bring a more natural touch to your skincare routine? With the right ingredients from N-Essentials, you can recreate your favourite products with a few simple steps.

For centuries, we relied on natural resources, concocting recipes long before modern medicine and cosmetic industries took over. While convenience has its place, it often comes at the cost of synthetic chemicals and mystery ingredients — things we would rather not have on our skin.

Whether you’re looking for a homemade skincare recipe that will give you a fresher appearance or simply to treat yourself over the weekend, these are for you. N-Essentials is the home of oils and natural ingredients that can elevate your skincare and hair care routines.

Soothing Honey Balancing Skin Balm

Our Soothing Honey Balancing Skin Balm is the natural touch your daily routine craves. Unveil the magic and let your skin experience unparalleled tranquillity, one application at a time.

This indulgent balm, brimming with the lushness of honey, brings you the perfect sensory experience. Its smooth texture effortlessly melts into your skin, while its sweet aroma subtly wafts around you. This recipe makes enough material for two to three uses.



  • In a small double boiler, melt cocoa butter until clarified.
  • Remove from heat and pour into a small glass dish.
  • Add honey and stir well.
  • In a separate glass dish, combine essential oils with jojoba oil.
  • Combine ingredients and stir well.


  • Apply to the face and neck and leave on the skin.
  • Remove after 30 minutes using tepid or cool water.
  • Use your moisturiser as usual.
  • Discard any remaining amount.

Rosemary Honey Hair Mask

  • Pour into a clean plastic bottle with a tight-fitting stopper or lid.


  • Apply a small amount at a time to slightly dampened hair.

  • Discard any remaining amount.

Rose Oil And Honey Facial Mask

As you apply the smooth, rich texture onto your skin, let the fragrance of roses transport you to a blooming garden. The sweet, earthy undertone of honey adds depth, making your skincare routine an experience of indulgence. Crafted from nature's finest, our DIY Rose Oil and Honey Facial Mask promises a refreshing journey towards a glowing complexion.



  • Mix honey, sweet almond oil, vitamin E oil, and the rose geranium essential oil in a bowl.
  • Let it sit for a few minutes and then apply as much as you need to your skin.

  • Rinse mint leaves and place on a paper towel to dry.
  • Grind mint using a coffee grinder (or by hand using mortar and pestle). Set aside.
  • Melt beeswax using a small double boiler.
