Quick and Easy Homemade Christmas Gift

A great way to go green this holiday season is to make some or all of your gifts; one of the easiest gifts you can make is bath salts.


All you need is a glass jar (you can easily save one and upcycle it, just make sure it’s clean), Epsom salt, baking soda (optional), and peppermint essential oils.

Fill your jar a little more than half way with Epsom salt and fill the rest of the way with baking soda if using it (if not fill with Epsom salt). After you fill your jar put a few drops of your essential oils in the jar. It will depend on the size of your jar how much you should add, just keep smelling it. After you do all of that just put the lid on and shake. Add a cute tag and or ribbon and you’re done!

You can also use other essential oils or even crush up some candy canes and mix those in with your bath salts to make them pretty.

    Thank you for sharing! I found this awesome scrub recipe while searching for homemade Christmas gift ideas this year, but I was wondering if you know how long the scrub will last? I want to get an early start on making it, but without starting so soon that it goes bad before Christmas! 🙂
