Sure, you can buy some bath salts or sugar scrubs at the store. But when you make them yourself, you can control how strong the scent is and even make up your own combinations. I personally prefer to use essential oils. The oils are a pure way of adding scents that also have relaxation and other mental benefits.
DIY Beauty Products You Should Make
I hope you find something new to try on this list. Pamper yourself or give them as a gift to someone you appreciate. All the crafts on this list are simple enough to make that you should make a few large batches and give them away.
