Get a head start on your Holiday gifts this year by making your own super-inexpensive gifts! These are as good, if not better quality than anything you would find in a beauty store or special boutique; they are 100% natural, non-toxic and just gorgeous!
The key is to get your crafty on and decorate your jar with creative labels, ribbons etc.
Spicy Sugar Holiday Scrub
1 cup organic light brown sugar
2tsp ground cloves
1tbsp dried rose petals
2 tsp grated orange zest
1cup sesame oil (from the Body section of Wholefoods or a health food store)
Simply mix ingredients in a bowl and spoon into a wide-mouthed jar with a lid.
Peppermint Foot Scrub
1 cup sea salt (Kosher is fine)
1 cup sweet almond oil
30 drops peppermint essential oil
15 drops tea tree oil
1 tbsp dried mint leaves
Mix in a bowl and add to your jar
Lavender Muscle Soak
1 cup Epsom salts
1 cup sea salt
30 drops Lavender essential oil
1 tbsp dried lavender flowers
Mix in a bowl and pour into pretty jar
Lemony Hand Scrub
This is amazing as it’s also moisturizing. Keep by your kitchen sink at all times!
1/3 cup oil (you can use any oil that you have to hand, but my favorites are sweet almond, grapeseed or olive)
2/3 cup of sea salt
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1tsp lemon zest
10 drops lavender or lemongrass essential oil
Tip: Keep in mind that you need to buy pure essential oils. Every home should keep the lavender, tea tree and peppermint essential oils because they are highly antibacterial and great to add to your First Aid kit. I recommend ordering your oils from Mountain Rose Herbs.
