Homemade Christmas Gifts for Friends and Family
Have you ever used Essential Oils? I mean a really good essential oil that smells amazing and actually helps you? There are so many out there that smell ok but when you find a good one, you know it because it really helps. I was introduced to Young Living oils a few weeks ago and I was shocked with how they actually helped me. I was having a lot of back pain when I went to the class, after applying one of the oils, my pain was gone within minutes. Seriously! I know that everything will work differently for different people, but that was awesome for me and I came home with oils to use!
Today I wanted to share a simple little DIY Homemade Christmas Gift for friends and family. I love relaxing in a hot bath and try to get one in every single night after my kids are in bed, it’s my time to unwind from the day. I have a simple Peppermint Bath Salts project for you to make and give on their own or to put in a fun Spa Gift Basket.
How to Make Peppermint Bath Salts
- 20 drops peppermint essential oil
- 1/2 cup Epsom salt
- 1/2 cup sea salt
Step 1: In a glass or metal bowl, add Peppermint essential oil. Add the Epsom salt and sea salt and mix thoroughly.
Step 2: Scoop into a 8 ounce container.
You can print out the FREE Tags for yourself too and add them to your jars!
To use: Pour or scoop a fourth of the mixture under warn running water. Allow the tub to fill before sinking into the soothing waters. Enjoy!
That’s it! They are so simple to make and smell heavenly in the hot tub! The peppermint even helps a little if you have a cold or are feeling yucky! I made some Shower Vapor Discs earlier this year when I had a nasty head cold that helped a lot and this peppermint bath salt was similar to that.
Do you know the benefits of Peppermint Essential Oil? Here is a list of a few things it helps.
Here are a few more Christmas Projects that we have been working on this year, I seem to be slightly addicted to Peppermint!
