It is that time of year again…the time when we are all starting to think about getting our holiday shopping done.
I must confess that I’m not that much of a shopper. In fact, the thought of going to the mall during the holiday rush makes me break out in a sweat. For the last several years, I’ve been guilty of taking the easy way out and giving gift cards for everyone other than the kids on my list.
It is certainly an easy option, but it may not always send the message that I want. I am not a fan of getting gift cards myself, and I’m sure the adults on my list would prefer a gift that I put some thought into.
This year my big focus is on coming up thoughtful gifts. And of course, what is more thoughtful than making gifts?
For some of the ladies on my list, I am making this DIY Frankincense Body Scrub. It is so easy to make and looks great in a simple but pretty jar!
For the longest time, Frankincense has been one of my favorite scents in essential oils. I love the rich sweet citrusy scent with warm balsamic undertones. It is so invigorating and energizing. There is nothing that feels more luxurious to me than a rich sugar scrub, so why not create one with my favorite essential oil? It is perfect for in the shower or even for a quick hand scrub. I like to keep it next to the sink when I have guests over!
If you are new to essential oils and looking for a brand that is perfect for DIY projects, you may want to consider Nature’s Truth essential oils.
Nature’s Truth Essential Oils are great if you are looking for essential oils to include in projects around the home. In addition to using them for today’s DIY Scrub, they are perfect for us in massage and diffusing as well as making soaps and candles. Once I get my tree up I plan on creating scented ornaments using essential oils!
You can pick up Nature’s Truth Essential Oils in the vitamin aisle of CVS or Walgreens, and you can order it on Target.com.
There are great options to choose from regardless of what your project is! Some of my favorite oils are Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Good Nite, Lemon and Cinnamon. Nature’s Truth also make a great Almond Base Oil that is great as a carrier oil in this recipe and it can be used for massage.
