06 Nov Eco-Friendly DIY Gifts to Show Appreciation
Thanksgiving season is here! Which means many of us are looking for meangingful ways to say “thank you” to the helpful people in our lives. Whether it’s family, friends, a significant other, or a colleague, these are our top eco-friendly DIY gifts to show appreciation this season.
Oats are a multi-tasking powerhouse when it comes to skin. Their high lipid (or fat) content nourishes, protects, and moisturizes. They are also highly absorbent, helping to clear dirt and oil from pores. Plus, their antibiotic properties help to soothe irritated or red complexions. Combine the ingredients of this make-at-home moisturizing mask, then gift it in a lovely Mason jar as a way of saying “thanks.”
There’s nothing quite as soothing as a hot bath in the middle of winter. And bath bombs are the perfect way to add skin-boosting benefits to your soak. Make this aromatherapeutic gift really sparkle with a few drops of natural food coloring and essential oil.
Know someone who loves to bake? This three-ingredient homemade vanilla extract is the perfect choice! First, we start with real, all-natural vanilla beans. Then, add vodka (or your choice of alcohol) and pour into a pretty, repurposed jar or bottle for an instant win.
Love the idea of knitting but not ready to pick up a set of needles? Now, in 45 minutes of watching your favorite show, you can piece together a giant, chunky blanket using just your arms!
