Make Your Own Healing Gifts

Christmas Body Scrub

I like to make gifts for people during the holidays, for birthdays, or other special occasions.

When you make something you can be sure it will be infused with your love, creativity, and will be healing and nourishing.

This is a simple recipe that can make up to twelve Healing Body Scrubs. Anyone can make these and then you can be creative by adding some decorations to them as well.

First you will need to get your materials to make these Healing Body Scrubs.

* Epsom Salt (two bags or boxes)

* Bottle of Almond Oil

* Bottle of Grape Seed Oil

* Raffia Ribbon for decoration (craft store)

1. Mix together Sea Salt and Epsom salt in equal parts in a large bowl. You want to make sure your salt is evenly mixed so you have the same amount of both salts. In this bowl I mixed four cups of Epsom salt and four cups of Sea Salt. I will mix together more if needed later. Just remember these are in equal parts so if you only need a little more to fill a couple of jars later you will know do half and half.

2. Fill up your jars 3/4 of the way full. Leave some room at the top so you can fill the jars with oil. If you need to mix up more salt then do so now.

3. Fill each jar with 1/4 cup of Almond Oil and 1/4 cup Grapeseed Oil.

4. Put in 7 drops of Lavender, Lemon, and Clary Sage essential oils, into each jar. You can add a few more drops of the essential oils if you would like. Be creative and add your own oil blend.

5. Stir well with a spoon or Popsicle stick. Put the lid on your jars.

6. Now make your labels so that the person receiving your gift will know all the wonderful ingredients in your gift! Place this on the back of the jar. Also make another label for the top that says: Healing Body Scrub, so they know what it is.

7. Now you can really get creative and decorate your gifts! Place the Raffia or ribbon around the jar and add other floral or bead decorations. You can also add a gift tag saying who it is for.
