It is the season of gift giving and if your anything like me you love to give and get homemade gifts. I am sharing a simple homemade Christmas gift that your friends and family will love.
If you are anything like me, you love giving and receiving homemade gifts.
This simple homemade Christmas gift idea is sure to be a hit with whom ever you decide to make it for.
I have always enjoyed making simple and thoughtful gifts for friends and family.
The purpose of homemade gifts is to give something that is personal, creating a meaningful gift.
To me receiving a homemade gift is something I really treasure.
With the busy season having an easy recipe that doesn’t require much time makes this gift a popular one to make.
Supplies needed for homemade gift
- Orange essential oil
- Pure honey
- Liquid Castile soap (unscented or citrus orange)
- Liquid Vitamin E
- Jojoba oil or fractionated coconut oil
In the photo I used castor oil because that is what I had on hand, but you can use the jojoba oil, or fractionated coconut oil.
Body wash Recipe:
- 30 drops orange essential oil
- 1/4 c. pure honey
- 1/2 c. liquid Castile soap
- 2 tbsp liquid vitamin E
- 1 tbsp of jojoba oil or fractionated coconut oil
When making this that is intended for a 6 oz. bottle you should double the recipe for a 15 oz bottle with a pump.
Add all ingredients into the container of your choice.
Shake it vigorously to mix all the ingredients, and you are done.
Put a cute tag on the bottle and place it in a cute little bag or basket.
You could also make the tags used for this gift, see last years gift tags made from recycled cards here.
You can modify this recipe by switching out the orange for a mint or pine oil for your male family members.
The scent possibilities are endless with this recipe.
Create the scent based on the receivers scent preferences.
Just like that you have created a super hydrating, and wonderfully scented natural body wash.
The perfect, simple homemade Christmas gift.
Till next time
