Homemade Beauty

Last spring my friend had a make-your-own-lip-balm party. It was loads of fun and inspired this year’s gifts for my friends.

Coffee bags from a craft store decorated with rubber stamps, tags from Staples

Jars and labels also from a craft store

I tried out various recipes and ended up with a few favorites:

Mocha Spice Sugar Scrub

Moisturizing Shea Butter Body Scrub

Lavender Vanilla Body Oil

Lavender Mint Foot Scrub

Most of these recipes can be made with items from the health food store and your kitchen. Lip balm is another story. I ordered the ingredients from Mountain Rose Herbs. This recipe for minty chocolate lip balm from Crunchy Betty is amazing (I skipped the honey). Yummy!

 A one for me, one for you gift

It’s incredibly easy to make your own scrubs and they smell so heavenly.

Have you made any beauty products at home? What are your favorites? Have you ever given or received homemade gifts? What were they?
