Did you know you can make your own natural shoe polish, this is how you make it:
You will need:
– 2 tablespoons beeswax
– 1 cup of linseed oil, olive oil or flax seed oil
Combine the olive oil and beeswax in a microwave-safe cup or bowl.
Microwave the cup for 30 seconds, then give it a stir and microwave for another 30 seconds. Repeat until the beeswax has melted completely and is well incorporated.
You can also use a double boiler to heat the mixture, simply use a large pan filled with water and a small pan where you add the oil and wax. It’s important to use the double boiler techniques to prevent the wax and oil from overheating.
Mix well, then pour the liquid into your tin, jar, or whatever you’ll be storing you polish in. Allow the liquid to cool and solidify, which should take about an hour or so.
This polish is suitable for leather only (not suede)
Goldrick curates earth-friendly and functional goods from independent makers, including ourselves. Our main collection is our zero waste line of products, which aims to replace single use plastics in the everyday household. Goldrick inspires people to see the beauty and purpose in nature.
Our planet needs our help – we have to use less and move away from single-use plastic and celebrate natural alternatives. It is estimated that we are producing over 300 million tons of plastic every year, 50% of which will only be used once. More than 8 million tons of plastic is dumped into our oceans every year. By choosing natural and reusable products you are reducing landfill waste and you are making a difference to our planet.
With your choice you are taking a stand against the devastating effects of a throw away culture.
I started the Goldrick company in 2018 with the ambition of creating natural living environments, making a life alongside nature to support our wonderful planet.
I am inspired by the beautiful organised chaos of nature, all the flawless rhythms woven into the messiness of our lives. I am inspired by the little moments that make up our stories, the the touch of the sun and the sound of the rain.
