So as you guys can tell i’m on a serious essential oils kick lately. They just work wonders so I keep finding ways {essential oils post, and sleep tips post} to bring them to the blog to let you all in on their magic! I thought I would   pair an essential oil at home face scrub with a few of my favorite wellness products to create a little beauty basket for any of the ladies on your christmas list.

I had this idea when this weekend I was picking through my array of facial products to give my mom a list of stocking stuffers for christmas {you guys, so genius if you want expensive facial products but never want to buy them ask for them for christmas and if you use them sparingly they will last you the whole year🙈} and I realized I didn’t have any good face scrubs that I liked. Like actually none.

I was in the mood to be a bit crafty so I thought why not create my own? A bit of coconut oil, baking soda and essential oils later and BOOM the best scrub that left my face feeling baby soft oh and I can’t forget to mention the ingredients are all natural!

So easy and I spent $10 on it. I was so blown away by how shiny and soft my face came out to be that I mixed up a few more and added them into a little all natural beauty basket for each one of my friends for their christmas gift!

All Natural Beauty Basket

I added a little festive label on each one, some cute ribbon, moisturizers, gel nail polish, homemade mint chocolate popcorn {recipe to come}, matcha tea, a favorite holiday movie & this basket was stocked! Such an easy but thoughtful holiday gift.

Homemade gifts are always my favorite, I love seeing how creative people can be or OHH my favorite when people give delicious baked goods for holidays and with it they give you the recipe so you can recreate it at home! Wait a second that’s kinda like what I do every week for this blog! haha so consider my recipes a homemade gift to you all 😉!

I have linked all of the items in by beauty basket below and if you click you can purchase them straight through Amazon!
