Christmas Round Up 2012: Spa Day Baskets

Ahh, these spa day baskets were very fun to put together. After reading quite a few recipes for skin scrubs and bath salts, I ordered a couple of bottles of essential oils and went to work creating my own variations(for better or for worse, I've never been good at sticking to recipes). I chose lavender and eucalyptus mint, as they smell good AND promote restful sleep, uplifting moods and stress reduction..perfect for these busy, hardworking women of mine.

Aromatherapy Spritz:
Fill bottle almost full with distilled water, add about a teaspoon of vodka and at least 10 drops of essential oil. Give it a shake.

Lavender Eucalyptus Mint Bath Salts:
Mix a cup of epsom salt, a teaspoon of baking soda, a few drops of essential oil.

Lavender Sugar Scrub:
1 cup sugar, 1/3 cup olive oil, a few drops of essential oil. (this is a good place to start, but I ended up adding more sugar little by little until I had the consistency I wanted)

Also tucked in the basket: a loofah, a scented votive and a glass candle holder.
