How to - Bath and Beauty Gifts for Christmas

On Saturday, November 10th, 2012,
Elna taught at the Pretoria branch of Soul Sisters.
The ladies made their own 
Atomisers (Spritzers),
Bath Salt Tea Bags and
Body Scrubs.

Most of these products can be "concocted" from supplies which are
available at you local pharmacy or health shop.

Here are the links for the 

For the Atomiser you need to mix:
a tablespoon of Rubbing Alcohol (or Vodka) and
7 drops of your favourite essential oil
in a mister bottle before
filling up the bottle with distilled water
(We used a 50ml (2 ounces) bottle)

Another one of my favourites is a 

Sugar Body Scrub:
 Pour 160ml (5 ounces) of sugar into a jar with a wide neck;
Add 60ml (2 ounces) of Soluble Bath Oil (Mineral oil / Technical Oil),
a teaspoon of Vitamin E Oil and
10 drops of your favourite essential oil.
Stir with a wooden stick until it forms a paste
(the sugar will remain gritty).

Apply to hands/feet, rub and rinse with warm water.


You can also make your own 

Diffuser Oils
Mix together 60ml (2 ounces) Mineral Oil (Soluble Bath Oil / Technical Oil)
a teaspoon of rubbing alcohol (or Vodka) and
10 drops of your favourite essential oil.

These recipes are ideal for making inexpensive handmade gifts
for family, friends, teachers and all the other special people in your life!!
