This Christmas I was inspired to “create” gifts for family and close friends in an effort to give more memorable and meaningful gifts. For the girls, I made spa jars. I shopped at a local thrift store to find unique jars for a good price. I then purchased general spa themed items from the Dollar Store/dollar section at Target to include nail files, nail polish in varying colors, nail clippers, buffer bars and lip balm. I purchased different shaped bottles from Hobby Lobby in addition to Peppermint Oil since I wanted everything to have
I used the following recipes:
Foot Soak: 1 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup Epson salt, 4 Peppermint Tea Bags, 5 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil. Mixed together in a bowl.
Foot Scrub: 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.
Foot Softener: 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.
Bath Salt: 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 and themed the jars accordingly 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.
