Easy and Natural DIY Beauty Products You Can Make This Holiday Season
Christmas time is in the air and we’re feeling festive over here at The Innate Life. You know our products are 100% natural, plant-based and non-toxic, so when we get the chance to make new natural goodies we’re all over it! We gathered a little inspiration from Pinterest and a whole lot of Christmas spirit to create 5 Holiday DIYS you can gift this season (or keep for yourself…we won’t tell). These beauty and bath products are made with natural ingredients and are sure to be a homemade hit among friends and family. Let’s get crafting!
Our first recipe makes for an excellent stocking stuffer and is a winter essential anyone will appreciate. Give the gift of soft lips with our homemade Peppermint Lip Balm. This recipe only contains 3 ingredients and the scent of peppermint is sure to trigger thoughts of Christmas. You can even add some red or green food colouring if you’re feeling extra festive. This small gift pairs perfect with our 10 mL Rose Hair Elixir for the ultimate stocking stuffer duo.
We’re sticking to the peppermint theme with our next recipe: Peppermint Bath Bombs. These bath bombs make an excellent addition to a ‘spa night’ gift bundle, including an aromatherapy candle, a face mask, and our Scalp Treatment. Any busy body on your list will love to unwind with these goodies! Make sure to keep these bath bombs refrigerated until time of use or they will melt (we learned this the hard way).
There’s something so luxurious about a body scrub. We especially love using them in the winter when skin is a little more flaky than usual. There’s no need to splurge on one this year because they are so easy to make! This Brown Sugar Scrub made with brown sugar, almond oil and vanilla smells so divine you’ll want to eat it. A great gift for your closest girlfriends – and make sure to save some for yourself!
Nothing says Christmas like gingerbread. This scent is a familiar favourite to many, but if you’re not doing any baking this year, there are other ways to get your fix! This Gingerbread Body Butter is super moisturizing and smells like gingerbread cookies straight out of the oven. Don’t be surprised if you’re tempted to eat it. This whipped body butter makes a perfect gift for that cookie-fanatic in the family or anyone who would love an indulgent treat for their skin.
The holidays can leave us all feeling a little frazzled, and that’s why it’s important to make time for self-care. Whip up our Relaxing Bath Salts recipe and gift to anyone who needs a gentle reminder to slow down. The soothing scent of Lavender is sure to help unwind and distress. This is an easy recipe to double or triple, making it an excellent gift for extended family or co-workers.
