Rosemary Spa Kit

 

The best way to treat yourself (or the one you love) after a long day is with an at-home spa experience. This DIY spa kit can serve as a last-minute night to yourself, or as a gift for your hard-working loved one.

Typically, DIY skincare can get a little messy. If you’re interested in making this kit a gift, or are simply pleased by pretty presentation, grab a couple of mason jars from your local grocery store and store these products in them with some twine and fresh cut rosemary. This is a simple and cost effective way to class up the kit.

Regardless, this rosemary-based kit is sure to create a relaxing and elegant spa night.

SCRUB

A sugar and sea-salt based scrub. Coconut oil keeps it hydrating, which makes it perfect to use before shaving.

1 cup sea salt
½ cup coconut oil
2-4 drops rosemary essential oil

SOAK

This oatmeal and milk bath soak can cure even the driest skin. Just add a bit of powder to your warm bath!

½ cup oats (partially ground)
1 cup dried milk
¼ cup baking soda
2-4 drops rosemary essential oil

FOOT SCRUB

Similar to the body scrub, this concoction is meant for your longest days. It’s got a bit of minty scent with rosemary accents, but that’s only so your scrub will leave your feet fresh & tingly.

½ cup epsom salt
½ cup granulated sugar
¼ cup coconut or olive oil
2 drops rosemary essential oil

HAIR MASK

This mask restores the moisture and shine back into your hair and softens it. Just apply it all over your hair and let it sit for 15-20 minutes before washing it out.

2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons honey
1 drop rosemary essential oil (optional)

LIP SCRUB

During the winter, your lips are fighting the ultimate battle against dehydration. If your lips are screaming, just use this scrub and apply your favorite chapstick.

1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon honey
1 drop rosemary essential oil (optional)

TIPS & TRICKS

An easy way to dress up the kit is by adding homemade tags to each item. Just take some cardstock paper and print or write the name of the product, hole punch the tag and loop it through your twine.

If you don’t have a lid for all your jars, take a bit of tan wax paper and secure it with a rubber band. Then, cover the band with twine.

If you’re giving it as a gift, I suggest finding a basket to place the jars in to make it easier for you to carry, and more appealing to the person receiving the gift.

If you melt your coconut oil before adding it to these recipes, it can make it easier to work with.
