Last week, we hosted an online workshop with essential oil expert, Jill Batiste, to teach you and your residents how to make some simple spa gifts to share during the holidays.

Cute, isn’t it? If you missed the workshop, or if you just want to set up another time for your residents to get in on the fun, we have the video!

Below are the materials you will need to make all 3 of the gifts found in the video. I would definitely suggest grabbing all of the materials beforehand so you can just press play and follow along.


General Supplies You Will Need:

  • Containers for mixing – You can use plastic disposable cups to mix the ingredients or, if you have a crowd, you can mix a big batch in a large mixing bowl.
  • Spoons for stirring – popsicle sticks are a good alternative, too, if you have some on your craft cart.
  • Containers for your finished product – For the bath salts and sugar scrubs, you can use any small jars that you might have on hand. For the cuticle oil, a roller ball container or a glass dropper bottle works really well.
  • Carrier oils – These include coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil, and jojoba oil. Now not to worry if you don’t have all of these oils – you can grab one or two, or just use what you have on hand!
  • Essential oils Each recipe will use specific oils with certain benefits. Look for them in a natural food store or click here to order the set of 3 Jill uses in the video.
Ingredients for Lavender Bath Salts:
  • Epsom salts
  • Coconut oil
  • Lavender essential oil promotes relaxation, plus has antifungal properties.
Ingredients for Soft & Silky Cuticle Oil:
  • Olive oil
  • Avocado oil
  • Jojoba oil
  • Lemon essential oil promotes nails growth.
Ingredients for Candy Cane Sugar Scrub:
  • Granulated white sugar
  • Coconut oil
  • Peppermint essential oil can help relieve muscle tension.

Now that you’ve gathered all your supplies, it is time to follow along as Jill shows us how to use these ingredients to make some luxurious little gifts!

Great satisfaction comes from sharing with others! I hope your residents enjoy sharing their gifts as much as Jill and I enjoyed sharing this workshop with you all!
