How to Make Scented Personal Care Items


Many people, women in particular, love to receive skin care and beauty products as gifts. Instead of buying from stores, why not create your own products to make the gift more special? If you want to surprise your best girls, female co-workers or even the metro-sexual lot in your group, learn how to make scented gift items yourself with these simple bath and beauty recipes.

Lip Gloss – Girls can’t help but apply lip gloss regardless of the weather or their lips’ condition! Chappy lips or not, we all have a stick or a pot of lip gloss inside our bags. Making lip gloss is simple and the ingredients and materials are not hard to find either. The simplest and easiest way is to use petroleum jelly, a jar or any cute container and your desired lip gloss flavor. Melt the petroleum jelly in the microwave for half a minute. Add fruit powder if you like a fruity scent and flavor or cocoa powder for a lush chocolate taste and smell. Scoop it into the container once it is cool enough and wait until it is already firm to apply.

Now for those of you that don't like petroleum jelly and I'm one of them, you can replace it with beeswax and add a little shea butter. You would follow the same directions as above and you end up with a great lip gloss.

Bath Salts – Making bath salts is the perfect project for newbies who want to know how to make scented gift items. It is practically easy and you can play with color and scents. The basic ingredient here is Epsom salts. Combine it with food coloring and mix well. Add essential oils or perfumes and let it dry on a sheet of wax paper. Put the bath salts in a pretty jar and tie with a nice ribbon. Another packaging suggestion is to use a clear jar and paint it with the name of the recipient for a more personalized look.

Lotion – Homemade lotions with natural ingredients are not only more affordable but also healthier for your skin compared to its synthetic counterpart. Use an emulsifying product that is plant based and blend with vegetable glycerin and vegetable oil. You can try sunflower oil for its protective and moisturizing properties or avocado which is known for being high in vitamins and minerals.

These are just three of the many recipes for bath and beauty essentials. You can search the web if you want fancier recipes or packaging ideas. As you can see, head to toe pampering need not be complicated or expensive. This is also true with gift giving. Learning how to make scented gift items is not only fun, it can also be your gateway to how your prospective market would react should you decide to develop it into a business in the future.


Life Never Smelled So Sweet!
