DIY Easy Vegan Leather Shoe Balm

Hi all, 

I hope you are all doing well.

I recently purchased Vegan Leather boots. I had to clean them without the possibility of ruining them. Also, I didn’t want to purchase a shoe balm, so I decided to make my own since I had most of the ingredients at home. Shoe balms help to restore the colour of your shoe, to seal and protect your shoe.

Here’s my quick and simple DIY formulation!

Ingredients:
¼ cup Soy Wax
¼ cup Cocoa butter
2 tbsp Olive Oil
½ tbsp Activated Charcoal *Optional
3-5 Drops of Lavender oil (or any preservative EO)

In a double boiler, add all your ingredients. Let all the ingredients melt. Put the mixture in a jar and let it cool down.

Wipe your shoe with a humid cloth. Once in a solid-state, take a small amount with a dry clean cloth and rub it on your shoe.

And Voilà! You’ll have nice, clean and shiny shoes. 

*Always do a test patch first.
* The Activated Charcoal is Optional. Use it for black shoes or black textures shoes to avoid white residues.

I hope this recipe was helpful.

Love xoxo
