Can I tell you a secret? I love making bath and body products.
Most of the time they’re insanely easy to make. We’re talking easy enough to make with your four year old and not pull out clumps of your hair easy.
Better yet, the pay off can last for weeks! The ladies in this house are suckers for things that smell amazing and make you feel all pampered. We like to make big jars full of scrubs that the girls happily glop all over themselves in the bath tub. And I’m not going to lie to you, I happily glop them all over myself too.
Since they’re so simple and relatively inexpensive to make, homemade bath and body products are perfect for making in large batches and gifting to friends and family for the holidays. I put together a list of 15 DIY skincare products that would make awesome gifts.
peppermint whipped body butter
peppermint brown sugar body scrub
lavender and lemon oatmeal mud mask
One you make one, all you have to do is put it in a pretty little package (mason jars with cool labels are perfect for this) and your friends and family will freak out. I think I might have to put together little spa baskets for my kids’ teachers this year!
