Peppermint Sugar Scrub - Homemade Scented Gifts #5

Friday, December 5, 2014

Happy Friday, Everyone! So, the end of this week marks the end of my Scented Homemade Christmas Gift ideas Week. I made it – 5 videos in 5 days! I am so excited about reaching my goal! It was a tough one and a lot of work. From waking up to going to bed I did nothing but film, edit, and post these videos and blog posts for about a full 7 days. But, I’m still smiling at the end of it, so I guess that’s a good sign! ;) Hope you’ve enjoyed!

So, today, for the 5th and final post in this series, I have another really, really easy tutorial for you – Homemade Peppermint Sugar Scrub. And, this is a great mate for the Body Butter from Idea #4.


Peppermint Body Butter - Homemade Scented Gifts #4

Thursday, December 4, 2014

Hey, Friends! How have you been enjoying my Scented Homemade Christmas Gift Idea series? Well, yes, today is day 4 and I do have another gift idea tutorial for ya! And, yep, it is peppermint scented! It’s Homemade Peppermint Body Butter!

I really love this one and I really liked making it, too! Again, so easy! It’s great to use year round but is perfect for the dry winter month! You can use it to nourish and moisturize rough knees and elbows, hands, legs and it’s great for shaving your legs, too! It’s got some great ingredients in it that will make your skin feel amazing! And, although the peppermint essential oil that’s in it isn’t technically for internal consumption, everything else is edible. Below you’ll find that list of ingredients along with what makes them so great for using in a body butter!

Wednesday, December 3, 2014

Hey, Everyone! So, I made it to Day 3 of my Homemade Scented Christmas Gift Ideas! Yay! So, for this installment of this series I’ve got another pretty simple tutorial for you all – DIY Peppermint Bath Bomb Fizzies!

I just feel like a kid when it comes to bath bombs because they are so fun to throw in the bath and see them fizz… I’d like to throw a whole bunch in just to see how crazy that would be!

So, these ones aren’t too complicated and takes little ingredients. You could add many more things to make these more nourishing like different types of oils (just a small bit), but these are perfectly great with this recipe and so quick to make! And, once again, don’t forget that can use this tutorial for year round gifting by using different essential oils and colors! Experiment! ;) Let’s look at the ingredients!

So, as with the other tutorials in this series, you can use this tutorial all year round, not just first Christmas, by substituting the peppermint essential oils for your favorite essential oil. If you’re into peppermint, then just go with it! Who says Peppermint is just for Christmas anyway! ;) It’s a great scent for relaxation! You can also choose a different color soap colorant, or none at all, since it is purely for aesthetics! Here is the list of things you’ll need:
