Homemade Holiday Gifts From The Farm 2018

We are trying to make Christmas a little simpler, a little more homemade and a lot more from the heart each year. We make quite a few homemade gifts like candles, garden decor, bubble bath and diffuser ornaments as a family, but on this post I am only sharing the recipes of what we made at the annual ‘Make, Wrap and Take’ at The Farm with our oily tribe.

  • Water
  • Christmas Spirit Essential Oil

Directions:

  1. Add a squirt (teaspoon) of vodka or witch hazel to the glass spray bottle.

This could be used as an air freshener, bathroom spray or even a linen spray! Just shake and spray to enjoy! 

Candy Cane Sugar Scrub

Supplies Needed:

  • 8oz Mason Jar
  • 8oz of Organic Cane Sugar
  • 10-12 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
  • 1/4 cup of organic fractionated coconut oil – This is different from regular coconut oil, as it will always stay liquid form, which makes it perfect for the scrub. It also doesn’t have any scent. 
  • A label

Directions:

  1. Place all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl. 
  2. Mix well.
  3. Scoop it all in the jar.
  4. Screw on the lid.
  5. Label.

This scrub leaves your skin feeling so soft!

  • 1 Tablespoon of Fractionated Coconut oil
  • 2 drops Lemon Essential Oil
  • 2 drops Lavender Essential Oil
  • 2 drop CLEAR Vanilla or Stress Away Essential Oil 
  • Mason Jar

Directions:

  1. Place all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl. 
  2. Mix well.
  3. Scoop it all in the jar.
  4. Screw on the lid.
  5. Label.

Love using this at night, just before bed. 

Whipped Body Butter

Supplies Needed:

  • 1/2 cup of Organic Shea Butter 
  • 1/4 cup of Organic Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 cup of Organic Almond Oil or V6
  • Essential Oils (Tea Tree, Frankincense and Lavender)
  • Mason Jar

Directions:

  1. Let the ingredients get to room temperature. Think of butter for cookies.
  2. Add the Coconut Oil, Shea Butter and Almond Oil to a stand mixer or a bowl.
  3. Mix on medium-high for about 5-7 minutes until it looks like a whipped cream.
  4. Add the essential oils. About 5-8 drops each. 
  5. Whip a little more until the essential oils are blended.
  6. Use a spoon and fill your mason jar. It fills one 10 ounce jar when whipped.

This is best applied after a shower or bath to lock in moisture. I love the way it keeps my skin feeling soft during the Michigan winters. 

I am sure next year I will change it up a little, but some of the favorites will remain the same. I love this time of year! 

Merry Christmas!
