How to Make Homemade Spa Gifts

Is anyone else having trouble believing Christmas is almost here? If you’re like me and haven’t even started your holiday shopping yet then you’re in luck! 

In this segment, I’m joined by Tammy Henry from Opryland who has brought some spa secrets with her to teach us how to make homemade spa gifts like the ones they sell in the famous Relache Spa.

If you’re looking for hostess gifts or something for when you don’t exchange gifts with friends or family but want to give them something small and meaningful, these gifts are perfect. Tammy taught us two spa recipes: a Gingerbread Sugar Scrub & an Aromatherapy Shower Spray.

Gingerbread Sugar Scrub Recipe

This Gingerbread Scrub recipe is perfect as a gift or to place in your guest washroom during holidays.

  1.  Place all dry ingredients in mixing bowl: white sugar, brown sugar and spice mix (Cinnamon, Allspice, Ginger)
  2. Add vanilla
  3. Add slightly melted coconut oil until evenly mixed. (pre-melted in bowl or bought in liquid form)
  4. Transfer mixture into a container, such as small mason jar or repurpose candle jars or cookie dough containers

Aromatherapy Shower Mist or Room Spray

This Aromatherapy Shower Mist or Room Spray transforms your shower into a refreshing steam sauna.

  1. Fill a glass spray bottle halfway with water.
  2. Fill remaining half with witch hazel.
  3. Add about 20 drops of oil.
  4. Place shower mist bottle in pretty gift bag or wrap in clear or colored cellophane wrap and tie with ribbon and a pretty gift tag.

You can use a variety of essential oils depending on the effect and aroma you want. Here are a few combinations to consider:

  • straight eucalyptus to open up your sinuses and clear your mind in the morning shower
  • eucalyptus and peppermint to soothe a cold or headache
  • eucalyptus and lemongrass for an energizing  effect
  • eucalyptus and lavender for a calming bedtime mood
