I am a big believer in the DIY Christmas – gifts, decorations and treats! The reason for this is that is takes some financial pressure off of people and doesn’t involve the massive consumerism that has besieged what could be such a quaint, simple time. It makes the holiday so sweet and special and most people appreciate your time more than your money. Bonus: being creative is good for the soul:)
Here are a few simple ideas:
1 part Epsom salts
1 part sea salt
1/4 part baking soda
Mix well and put in bag or jar. Who doesn’t love a good soak?
1 part sugar/salt/cornmeal
1/2 part oil – coconut works best because it won’t leak.
Mix well and put in jar. Such a luxurious treat and costs very little to make.
Room or Body Spray
1/4 vodka (optional)
Add to spray bottle.
I left the types of essential oil and the amounts to you. Remember a little goes along way – they are extremely concentrated. Your nose will tell you when it’s a good amount. This is your opportunity to become a perfumer :)
