Simple Holiday Gift Recipes for Sugar Scrubs & Salt Bath

Sugar Scrubs and Salt Bath Recipes for Simple Holiday Gift Giving.

Sugar Scrub
What you will need
Sugar or brown sugar (Grocery Store)
Fractionated Coconut Oil (www.kollettechambers.com)
4oz. to 8oz. Container (www.Aromatools.com or local craft store)
Essential Oils (www.kollettechambers.com)

This recipe is for the 8 oz. container. For the 4 oz. container just half the recipe.
1/4 Cup Fractionated Coconut oil or Vegetable oil of choice
3/4 - 1 Cup Sugar
4-8 drops of Essential Oils of Choice 

Wash and Sterilize Containers, Fill Container with Sugar, then add the vegetable oil. Then add Essential Oils of choice and mix together. 
Add a ribbon and the gift is ready for giving. A wonderful Sugar Scrub.
Oil and Combination ideas
Lemon and Lavender
Rosemary and Eucalyptus
Wild Orange and Peppermint
Coriander and Lemongrass
Lemon and Wild Orange
Ginger and Lemon (great with brown sugar)
You may use salt instead of sugar, just make sure it is a fine salt. I like using the Fractionated Coconut oil as it is not greasy and does not stain clothes. 

Salt Bath Soak
What you will need
Epsom Salt (grocery store)
Fine Sea Salt (I get mine from San Francisco Salt Co.)
Gift Bags or Zip locks and have kids decorate (Craft Store/grocery store)
Ribbon (Craft Store)
Essential Oils (www.kollettechambers.com)

The Recipe 
1/2 Cup Epsom Salt
1/2 Sea Salt
1 Tablespoon Fractionated Coconut Oil
4 -8 drops of Essential Oils

note: You can mix a bag of Epsom Salt with Sea Salt ahead of time. Just make sure you use equal amount of each.

Mix the salts together, then add the Fractionated Coconut oil and then the Essential Oils. Hold bag closed, shake it all together. Put a cute ribbon around it and it is ready for gift giving. 

The Salt Soak is a great holiday party idea for everyone to make and take home. It is a great gift for anyone. 

More Essential Oil Combinations and ideas are Wild Orange and Lavender, Peppermint and Rosemary,  Roman Chamomile and Lavender, any oils with Lavender. You can use what every you'd like and these are a lot of fun to make. Enjoy!

I enjoyed sharing the salt soak in my sons first grade class for a project I had to bring into the class and do with the kids. The kids had a blast making them and they got to go home and give mom a gift or keep for themselves.

Have a Fun and Enjoyable Holiday!
