If you wait until the last minute, it only takes but a minute to make something dope and handmade with love! For all you last-minute holiday shoppers out there (myself, included): a round-up of our favourite (and not lame-ass) natural beauty gifts to make and give. Oh, by golly, couldn't we all use some good 'ole fashioned pampering this time of the year?
This one's easy. Add 15-20 drops of rose essential oil to some filtered water. Pour into a glass spray bottle, tie on some holiday flair, and check 'Mom' off the list.
You might want to enlist the help of your crafty little sister for these. I didn't stray too far from the careful instructions laid out by the ladies from A Beautiful Mess. I added some dried lavender and essential oil for a personal touch. (Make one for yourself while you're at it-- you deserve it, you!)
I made a batch of these last year (brought to you by the Free People bloggers) and they were a crowd-pleaser. For an added perk (hah!) to aid sore and tired muscles, I added some whole coffee beans before I poured the mixture into the mold.
Since you already have most of the ingredients after making the bath bombs, you might as well make these too, you perfect gift-giver, you. I didn't have any marigold petals lying around (but you do, don't do?) so I did without.
Again, this one's easy. Add some regular Epsom salts to a jar and add in some dried lavender and essential oils. Tie on a pretty ribbon and hand off to your best friend who needs some TLC. (And she could probably some of that TLC, too.)
Happy Holidays, Loves!
