DIY Body Care Gifts

  • Homemade bath salts are perfect for mom, sisters, teachers and neighbors. Primally Inspired tells you how to make bath salts with relaxing and detoxifying Epsom salt and essential oils. Click here to get the recipe. I made these last year for family and friends, and they were a big hit!


  • I always say “don’t apply anything to your skin that you wouldn’t eat.” This key lime pie whipped body butter from The Nourished Life is light and airy and smells divine– good enough to eat. Click here for the recipe.

  • I would also probably eat this Vanilla Bean Body butter from Primally Inspired. It contains cocoa butter, coconut oil and almond oil. Mmmmmmm. Click here for the recipe.


  • Go all out and make an entire DIY gift set. Homemade Mommy shows us how and includes lip balms, lotion bars, illness-fighting Thieves Oil, detox bath salts and sugar scrub. Awesome idea! Click here to learn how to make it.


DIY Food Gifts

  • My DIY chocolate bars are delicious and cute. You can also make them into truffles by rolling them into balls and coating with coconut or carob power or crushed nuts. Click here for recipe.
