It seems these days when trying to find the perfect gift for someone it is becoming harder and harder to find that perfect gift. Everyone tends to buy everything they want, when they want it. I personally like to add a personal touch to my gifts by creating my own DIY gifts for friends and family. Not only are these gifts personally made by me but it allows me to put that personal touch to a gift that you can't quite get from buying something in a store. I want to share with you a few easy gift giving ideas whether for Christmas or Birthdays or just because gifts.
Bath bombs are great because you can make them any colours you want and use a variety of essential oils to help create a mood. Some of my favorite scents to put in bath bombs are Lavender, Citrus Bliss and Wild Orange. To shape my bath bombs I bought some empty clear plastic ornaments that come apart. You can get them either off of Amazon or your local store especially around Christmas time. Or you can buy the metal moulds for bath bombs. The reason I got the clear ornaments that fit together is I always had struggled with my bath bombs staying together when I took it out of the mould. The empty ornaments allowed me to have them set longer before removing them. Actually today using the exact recipe above I only had them set them for 10 seconds and they stayed the beautiful round shape no problem. I was quite pleased with my myself. If you understood my past struggles you would be pleased with me too.
Talk about super easy to make! Honey is great for your face. It gives suppleness, firmness, reduces dry patches and pimples. Honey mixed with Frankincense can help you have an amazing complexion. Frankincense has been know to help reduce appearances of wrinkles, aging spots and helps discoloured skin tones. Honey is full of anti-oxidants.
Beeswax candles are non toxic so you don't have to worry about burning theses candles in your home. They have very low smoke release so burn clean. 100% natural product. To melt beeswax easily just fill a pot with some water then place a metal bowl on top of your pot. This will create a double broiler. Place you beeswax pellets in metal bowl and allow to melt without burning the wax. Add your essential oils then place in a container of your choice. Be sure to centre your wick. I like to use a little bit of hot glue to hot glue my wick to the bottom of the container. Let cool then trip your wick and you have yourself your own 100% natural candle in the scent you want.

Milk is better for your skin than in your belly. Milk contains fats and proteins that help your skin absorb moisture and feel softer. Using powdered milk is an easy way to gift the benefits of milk baths to a friend or family member.
