Gifts from the heart made with our own hands represent the true meaning of the holiday season. During October, we will be presenting easy to make gift ideas you can give to your family, friends, and coworkers. The last week of the month, we will show you some cute packaging ideas for all the gifts we made during the month.
Next week we will be giving you recipes for easy scrubs and soaks. Scrubs are a great pampering gift for any time of year. In the Fall and Winter, they are great for exfoliating dry skin. In the Spring and Summer, they are perfect for getting feet ready for sandal season. Our pink Himalayan salt soaks will be great for a relaxing spa bath or a foot soak for unwinding after the hustle and bustle of the holidays.
On the 16th, we will be giving you some stock blends. Stock blends make a nice gift by themselves for adding to a diffuser or steam. You can also use the stock blends to make an inhaler, lotion, body butter or massage oil. We will be discussing the proper ways to dilute your oils in your creations.
On the 23rd, we will be making lip balms based on the simple recipe in our lip balm kit. These are a fun, simple project to make using a few basic kitchen items. We will also be discussing the concerns with using essential oils on the lips so you know your recipe will be safe for use.
Beautiful packaging brings a special touch to all your gift giving and we have some great ideas for you. On the 30th, we will be demonstrating some simple gift wrapping ideas using the gifts we made during the month. Many of our ideas come from items you already have around your home, saving you time and money.
We hope you enjoy all these great recipes to make your holiday gift giving easy and truly your own.
