How to Make a Green Living Kit for the Bathroom
During the holiday season, choosing the right gift can be difficult. For someone who is new to green living, an introduction to the lifestyle through a certain product may be a good choice. When it is holiday gift giving time you may want to choose to offer a green living kit for the bathroom as a way to introduce the green lifestyle to a friend who enjoys a spa day or needs some relaxation at the end of a hard week. Here are the steps to creating a green living gift kit for the bathroom.

Items You Will Need:

' Mason Jars with Lids ' Decorative Labels ' Epsom Salts ' Essential Oil of Choice ' Baking Soda ' Citric Acid ' Corn Starch ' Brown Sugar ' Olive Oil ' Oatmeal

Creating a Green Living Brown Sugar Scrub

The first part of the green living gift kit for the bathroom would be the brown sugar scrub. This is a standard scrub that works great and smells great. You should put the directions on the gift tag or decorative label. The scrub should be put on damp skin before the bath since you will need to rinse it off. The sugar scrub should be created by mixing brown sugar and olive oil together in a 3 to 1 part mixture. Add more oil if you want a looser scrub and less for a stiffer scrub. Place in a mason jar for gift giving.

Creating Green Living Bath Bombs

A wonderful follow up to an all over brown sugar body scrub is a hot soak bath. The addition of bath bomb creates a bubble spa experience with a light scent and body rejuvenating experience. The bath bombs are created with oatmeal, baking soda, citric acid and corn startch. Essential oils can be added to the mix to create a distinct scent. Menthol based oils can be added for cold and flu season or sore muscles.

Creating a Green Living Bath Salt Soak

Some people may enjoy the bath bombs on occasion, but more often may enjoy a bath salt soak. Epsom salts are a great base for green living bath salt soaks. They help tired and sore muscles and dissolve easily in warm and hot water. To create a bath soak simply take the Epsom salt and mix with essential oils. The essential oil can be lavender for calm baths, menthol based oils for cold or flu and citrus oils for rejuvenation.
