Vanilla Lip Gloss

Whip up this yummy lip gloss for the beauty lover in your life. It makes a great stocking stuffer. You could also make a large batch to pass out to all of your friends at an upcoming holiday get-together.

Bath Salts

Colored Bath Salts

This is another gift that is super simple to make. All you need are Epsom and kosher salts, food coloring, essential oils of your choice and attractive jars! Be sure to tell the recipient that Epsom salt has natural sedative effects on the nervous system, helping to restore the body’s feel-good chemicals and relieve stress.
