Spa Day Gifts #homemadechristmas

Treat your friends and neighbors to a spa treatment for this Christmas!  This whole gift was a total of $10, including the tray.  I included the oils, the carrier oils, the honey and the shampoo and conditioner in the portions that I used, not what the products in total cost me.


1.  Woodsy Mint Bath Oil

3 oz of your favorite carrier oil (almond, grapeseed, coconut or jojoba)
10 drops of peppermint essential oil
20 drops of eucalyptus oil

Measure oil into your desired container.  Shake briefly.  Shake before using.  Pour 1 tablespoon into running warm bath water.  Rinse tub after using.

All my containers were purchased at Amazon. The link is
4 Oz Plastic Cylinder Bottles with Flip Top Pour Spout, Pack of 12

2.  Passion Fruit Shaving Cream

1 c shampoo (Passion Fruit by Suave)
1 c conditioner (Passion Fruit by Suave)
5 T jojoba oil (or any carrier oil)
5 T lotion
1/2 t cream of tartar or xanathan gum

Combine ingredients.  Mix with an immersion blender, mixer or whisk.  Pour into containers.  Use about 1 tablespoon per leg.

3.  Soothing Face Mask

2 t raw honey
1 t aloe vera gel
Add the following essential oils, all or any combination, as long as you have 4 drops
1 drop patchouli
1 drop lavender
1 drop rose
1 drop bergamot

Mix together thoroughly.  This is enough for one mask.  Double the recipe if you want to have more than one mask.  Apply to face, leave on 10-15 minutes.  Remove gently with warm water. Pat dry.


This silver tray is from Dollar Tree!  It is a perfect way to organize the items.  Cover with a cellophane bag and tie on a ribbon.  Merry Christmas!!

As a gift to you, here are the labels I used.  Print on a full page of sticker paper.  Cut out.  Add to jars.  There are three complete sets of labels on one sticker sheet!  The directions can be added to cardstock and included in the package or placed on the back of the bottles.
