Easy Homemade Holiday Gifts for Friends and Family
Following you’ll find four great bath and body recipes for easy homemade holiday gifts. And, because I know not everyone owns a kitchen scale, I’ve shared both the measurement and the weight for each of the ingredients called for in these recipes.
Lavender Bath Salts Recipe
1/2 Cup (4.35 oz.) Epsom salt
1/2 Cup (4.85 oz.) Himalayan pink salt
1/2 Cup (3.9 oz.) Dead Sea salt
1 1/2 teaspoons (.3 oz.) vegetable glycerin
3/4 teaspoon (.15 oz.) lavender essential oil
2 Tablespoons dried lavender or cornflowers, optional
Measure or weigh out the salts and combine in a large glass bowl. Mix well to combine, then stir in the vegetable glycerin and lavender essential oil.
Once the salts are evenly coated, stir in the dried flowers then package in a 16 oz. mason jar.
Now simply apply your custom 2.75″ sticker to the lid of the mason jar and it’s all set for gifting!
Ginger Orange Salt Scrub Recipe
1 1/4 Cup (8.24 oz.) Dead Sea salt
1 Tablespoon (.4 oz.) refined shea butter
5 cocoa butter wafers (.35 oz.)
3 Tablespoons (1.15 oz.) sweet almond oil
1/2 teaspoon (.1 oz.) fresh ginger essential oil
3/4 teaspoon (.15 oz.) 5-fold orange essential oil
Measure or weigh out the shea butter, cocoa butter and sweet almond oil. Combine in a double boiler and heat until melted.
Now measure out the essential oils and stir into the liquid ingredients. Set aside.
In a separate container, measure or weigh out the Dead Sea salt. Then pour the Dead Sea salt into the liquid ingredients.
Mix well to combine then package in a 9 oz. jar with a metal lug cap. Finish with a personalized 2.75″ label on the lid and a colorful ribbon tied around the neck of the jar.
Foaming Peppermint Sugar Scrub Recipe
3/4 Cup (5.6 oz.) white granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons (.8 oz.) refined shea butter
1 Tablespoon (.4 oz.) Castile liquid soap paste
2 Tablespoons (.9 oz.) safflower oil
1/2 teaspoon green jojoba beads, optional
1/2 teaspoon (.1 oz.) peppermint essential oil
Measure or weigh out the shea butter, Castile liquid soap paste and safflower oil. Combine in a double boiler and heat until melted.
Now measure out the peppermint essential oil and stir into the liquid ingredients. Set aside.
In a separate container, measure or weigh out the sugar. Combine with the green jojoba beads and mix thoroughly until the beads are incorporated evenly throughout the sugar.
Pour the sugar into the liquid sugar scrub base and stir or whisk with a fork until the wet and dry ingredients are thoroughly combined.
Then spoon the the sugar scrub into an 8 oz. PET heavy wall plastic jar with a black lid. Finish with your customized 2.75″ sticker on the lid.
Peppermint Foaming Hand Soap Recipe
Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint Liquid Castile Soap
Fill an empty 250 mL plastic PET bottle (with a white foamer pump) about two thirds of the way full with water. Then fill the remainder of the bottle three fourths of the way full (so there’s room for the foamer pump) with peppermint liquid Castile soap.
Screw on the foamer pump, then gently turn the bottle to mix the soap and water.
Finish with a 2.75″ round label on the front of your foaming hand soap bottle.
