We’d all like to be able to send our loved ones and ourselves to the spa to relax. After all, the holidays are a stressful time of year. Unfortunately, the days following the holidays don’t offer much relief. Your budget is a bit hungover, your detoxing from all the delicious holiday foods, work is in full swing, and the kids are back in school and extracurriculars requiring you to run frantically from one place to the next.
For most, a spa day is out of the question thanks to the price tag; however, you can gift the next best thing…relaxing DIY gifts in a jar like this Mason jar recipe for homemade lavender body scrub.
This DIY gift in a jar is super simple to make. It only requires 5 ingredients/materials and minutes of your time. Bonus: The ingredients needed are pretty inexpensive (especially compared to a spa day).
With DIY gifts in a jar such as homemade lavender body scrub, your loved one (or yourself…hey, you deserve a gift!) can take a trip to the spa again and again. This Mason jar recipe is especially great for a bath before bed as lavender is thought to help with anxiety, insomnia, and restlessness.

Do you like to use homemade beauty products and homemade cleaners? I love the ability to make products to use in my home that are all natural and safe which is why I am a big fan of essential oils. Young Living essential oils are my favorite oils because they are some of the best essential oils on the market. I also appreciate that Young Living guarantees no pesticides or herbicides were used in the growing of their oils, and that they are the only company that has their own farms, so they can ensure the quality of their oils.
Whether you already use Young Living essential oils or are new to the company, for a limited time, you can snag an awesome deal on a Young Living Premium Starter Kit!
The Young Living Premium Starter Kit includes:
- Eleven (5 ml) therapeutic-grade essential oils
- Your choice of Dew Drop or another Home Diffuser
- Several FREEBIES including a $20 Amazon gift card (limited time offer!), a reference guide, and access to our private Facebook groups where you can learn more about essential oils (how to use them, benefits, how to make money selling them etc.)
- Plus, with this order, you automatically become a wholesale member, which means you will save 24% off all of your orders! Even if you are not interested in selling Young Living essential oils, you still get the member discount if you purchase this Premium Starter Kit, and make at least one purchase of $50 per year!
*One exciting aspect of picking up the Premium Starter Kit is that you immediately have your own business (if you want)! There are numerous perks to becoming a seller and promoter of Young Living essential oils, so if you have been wanting a way to make money at home, this could be the right solution for you. Please note: You are NOT required to sell anything, it is completely your choice, but if you are interested in selling Young Living essential oils, I’d be happy to share with you more about this, feel free to email me at the address below.

I love to save money, so I recommend this option! (You may opt out if you are not interested.)

I like the Thieves Household Cleaner because not only is it cheaper than most any cleaner you can buy in stores, but it is non-toxic too. As a mom, this matters to me.
