These also make great teacher gifts.
And, making homemade gifts can save you a ton of money.
One of my favorite homemade Christmas gifts is BATH SALTS:
NORTHERN LIGHTS BATH SALTS
1 cup kosher salt
1 cup baking soda
3 drops Pine balsam essential/fragrance oil
2 drops cinnamon essential/fragrance oil
2 drops cassis essential/fragrance oil
2 tablespoons of liquid glycerin (skin moisturizer) (optional)
Mix ingredients together blending well. Break up any clumps.
Note: Liquid glycerin used as a skin moisturizer, is a by-product of soap making. Glycerin can be found at health food stores, some drug stores, or major department stores depending on where you live. Its also readily available on the internet as well.
