Gifts for the holidays, or any occasion, can get expensive, so sometimes DIYs are the most cost-effective but also the most personal. This winter trio, including a body butter, body/lip scrub, and foot soak, is a thoughtful and useful gift for your friends and family to pamper themselves this winter season.

Peppermint Body Butter

Ingredients:
– 3 oz. pure cocoa butter
– 4 oz. coconut oil
– 4 drops peppermint essential oil (or scent of your choice)
– 2 drops red food coloring (or color of your choice)
– Clean jar

Directions:

– Melt both the cocoa butter and coconut oil in a double boiler
– Place this mixture into the refrigerator for five minutes or until the mixture is cool and opaque
– Whip the mixture in a mixer until fluffy and smooth
– Add essential oil and food coloring; combine thoroughly
– Place the body butter into a clean jar

Note: If you do not have a double boiler you can substitute by placing a heat-safe bowl on top of a pot of boiling water to melt both the cocoa butter and coconut oil.

Peppermint Scrub

Ingredients:

– 1 cup sugar
– ¼ cup coconut oil
– 5-8 drops peppermint essential oil (or scent of your choice)
– 2 drops red food coloring (or color of your choice)
– 1 ½ pint jar

Directions:

– Microwave the coconut oil for approximately 20 seconds or until melted. Be sure to use a microwave-safe bowl
– Combine sugar and coconut oil in a mixer until thoroughly mixed
– Add in the food coloring and mix after each drop to achieve desired color
– Add essential oil and mix
– Place the scrub into a clean jar

Peppermint Foot Soak

Ingredients:
– 1 cup Epsom salts
– ½ cup baking soda
– ½ cup sea salt
– 5 drops peppermint essential oil (or scent of your choice)
– 2 drops red food coloring (or color of your choice)
– Fork
– Clean jar

Directions:
– Combine Epsom salt, sea salt, oil, and baking soda
– Add food coloring to the mixture
