This Christmas I was inspired to “create” gifts for family in an effort to give more memorable and presents. For the girls, I made spa jars. Check out these DIY Spa Jars with Printable Labels.
I shopped at a local thrift store to find unique jars for a good price. Next, I purchased general spa themed items from the Dollar Store to include nail files, nail polish, nail clippers, buffer bars and lip balm. I purchased different shaped bottles from Hobby Lobby in addition to Peppermint Oil for a holiday scent.
DIY Spa Recipes
1 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup Epson salt, 4 Peppermint Tea Bags, 5 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil. Mixed together in a bowl.
1/4 cup coconut oil (melted for 25 seconds in the microwave), 3/4 cup of sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 10 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil.
1 7.5oz jar of Vaseline (I chose the coco butter scent), 1 bottle of lotion (I chose Peppermint Scented from Bath & Body Works thanks to a free coupon), 2 4oz jars of Vitamin E cream (purchased from Wal-mart for $4/two pack). Mixed together with an electric beater and poured into the jars using a funnel.
1/2 cup Sea Salt, 1/2 cup Epson Salt, 2 tablespoons Baking Soda, 2 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil, food coloring (based on color scheme of jar).

I cut and glued the labels to the individual bottles. The jars are themed with the tagline “For Your Mistletoes”. I also filled some plastic containers purchased from the Dollar Tree with smaller portions and put circle decals on those which can be downloaded here.
