With winter just around the corner, you might be thinking not only of ways to warm up from the chill, but also of unique and creative gifts for the holiday season. These five DIY bath recipes make excellent natural, homemade gifts but can also be added to your bath to help you unwind at the end of a frigid day:
1. Cold Season Bath

Mix the epsom salts and baking soda, then add the essential oils. Mix together and store in a resealable jar, such as Aura Cacia’s Amber Glass Jars. When you’re ready to use, run a steamy bath and put a couple scoops of the white mixture into the water.

 

2. Detoxifying Green Tea & Lavender Bath Bombsshutterstock_205046710

Mix the citric acid, epsom salts, corn starch and green tea powder together. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Line a muffin tin with paper liners. Fill each liner with equal amounts of the mix, pack down with spoon. Put the bombs aside to dry overnight. Once firm, you can pop one out of its liner and into a warm bath.


3. Refreshing Citrus Bath Salts

5. Peppermint Holiday Bath Bombs
