With the holidays just around the corner it is time to start focusing on gift giving. Every year I have a number of people on my list that are kind of hard to shop for so I usually try to find something that will help them take care of themselves. Self care is important for everyone and I find that most of the time the people that truly need self care are the ones that never take time to relax and find a good balance of me time. Add the craze of the holidays and that balance is no where to be found!
Now, I am a person that loves to creative DIY gifts for the holidays too. Once I knew about this line of oils I started thinking about what kinds of salt scrubs I could make with the oils. One of my favorite scents is Chamomile because of the soothing, calming and nurturing scent. It is perfect for any occasion when you want to unwind and relax.
Make Your Own Chamomile Calming Salt Scrub
Glass container that seals (any size)
2 cups Epsom Salt
1 cup Course Sea Salt
2 TBSP Nature's Bounty Earthly Elements Aromatherapy Sweet Almond Skin Care Oil
1/2 cup Oil (you can use coconut, olive, peanut) I used coconut
15 drops Nature's Bounty Earthly Elements Aromatherapy Chamomile Blended Essential Oil
optional food coloring for tint
1. In a large mixing bowl combine the Epsom Salt and Sea Salt. Mix well.
2. Add in the Oils and mix well, make sure all salt is covered in oil.
3. Add the Chamomile oil and mix well.
4. Add a couple drops of food coloring to create your perfect tint of color. Mix well.
5. Carefully pour your salt scrub into your container. Enjoy!
Pretty simple right? A great way to make multiple DIY gifts for friends or family. My plan is to make a few different scents like Lavender and Peppermint and then create a gift set with the diffuser and a few oils for them as well. This gift basket will be a gift of relaxation and self care!
