DIY Holiday Gifts

If you have been wondering about the perfect Gift for your loved ones for this Holiday Season you might find this post helpful. I am going to post 3 Holiday Gift Ideas with Recipes. Handmade Gift is fun to make and your loved ones will love them.

Our first recipe is for Aromatherapy Soy Tart. Don’t panic, its extremely easy to make and you don’t need to be an expert in candle making because we are not gonna be using wicks, tabs or other materials here. Its just a melt and pour tart.

You will need:

1 Pound (450gms) Soy Wax

1/2 oz (15ml) Orange Essential Oil

1/2 oz(15ml)  Cinnamon Essential Oil

Tart Mold ( you can use Muffin, Chocolate or Candy Mold if you don’t have a Candle Mold)

Steel Jug or pyrex Glass to melt the Wax

Pour 2 Glasses of Water in a Saucepan. Take 1 pound Soy Wax and put it into the wax melting jug. Place this Jug inside the saucepan and let the wax melt in a very low heat. DO NOT leave the wax unattended and do not let the water boil. If you have a Candle making or Chocolate/ Candy Making Thermometer dip it into the wax pot to check the temperature. I use Ecosoya Pillar Blend Wax and its melting point is 130° F. Check with your wax supplier for the melting point of the wax.

Once it reaches its melting point turn off the heat. Add your Essential Oils. You can substitute Orange and Cinnamon with Pine, Clove or any scent that you like.

Stir it with a wooden stick and pour it into the mold. Let it sit for a few hours and umold it. Your Aromatherapy Soy Tarts are ready. Use your creativity to wrap and decorate this Gift 🙂

Note: I don’t use Dyes or Fragrance Oil in my Candle Making Project because I prefer 100% Natural Candles/Wax Melts. You can use it if you are fine with it.

Velvety Soft Lip Balm Recipe

Our second Holiday gift idea is Rose Geranium Lip Balm.

Geranium is one of my favorite essential oils and it works amazing in Lip Balms and Body Oil recipes. Geranium Essential Oil is also known as a hormone balancing oil and is an excellent oil to deal with PMS Mood Swings and other hormonal issues.

For this recipe you will need:

1 oz (30gms) Beeswax(Use Candellila Wax if you  want a Vegan alternative)

2 oz (60 gms) Coconut Oil or Jojoba Oil

1/2 oz (15 gms) Shea Butter

6-8 Drops Rose Geranium Essential Oil

1 Vitamin E Caplet

Melt Shea Butter, Beeswax and Coconut or Jojoba Oil(whicever you are using) using the same saucepan method as mentioned in the Soy Tart recipe (saucepan and a wax melting pot).

 Once it melts wait for 5-10 minutes and add Geranium Essential Oil and Vitamin E Caplet. Stir well. Pour into Lip Balm Tubes or Pots.  You have your own heavenly smelling Velvety Soft Geranium Lip Balm, a perfect Christmas Gift.

Our 3rd Holiday Gift Idea is Silky Lotion Bar

Who wouldn’t love a nice smelling all natural Lotion Bar during this harsh winter? Lotion Bars are pretty to give as Gifts and make an excellent moisturizer.

You will need:

1 oz (30gms) Beeswax

1 oz (30ml) Virgin  Coconut Oil

1 oz  (30gms) Shea Butter

10-12 drops Lavender/Ylang Ylang or your favorite essential oil

2 vitamin E Gel Caplets

Melt the Butter, Wax and Oil using the Saucepan method. Remove from heat, add essential oil and Vitamin E Gel( you need to pierce the caplet and squeeze the content into the container).

Pour the content into any Muffin Mold, candy or Chocolate Mold or a Candle Mold. You can try using Christmas Tree and Holiday themed Molds.

Remove from the mold after a few hours, wrap it and decorate it.

Please feel free to increase the quantity if you are making them in bulk.

Happy Holidays 🙂
