It never hurts to save a little money here and there. Making a do-it-yourself holiday present not only helps you maintain a steady shopping budget, but it also gives you the chance to make a nice, personalized gift!
Six Senses Laamu in the Maldives has shared its recipe for the resort’s luxurious body treatment Laamu Bliss, a cleansing Maldivian scrub that blends aromatic spices which warm up and detox the body. It’s the perfect DIY holiday gift for a chilly, winter day.
Here’s what’s so awesome: all the ingredients that you need to make this scrub can be found at your supermarket!
- Rice powder
Additionally, you should also purchase containers to store the scrub. I recommend snap-top glass jars that you can buy at an arts and crafts store.
Here’s what you do: combine the spice ingredients in equal parts. Next, gradually add hot water until the ingredients form into a paste-like texture. Voila! You’re done making the scrub.
Now, make some gift tags from pretty paper and use ribbon to tie them onto the containers. Add these instructions to the tags: “Apply this handmade Maldivian scrub wherever desired on the body. Leave on skin for 15 minutes or until skin begins to warm. Wash paste off.”
It’s easy; it’s good for the body, and it smells SO good. So give it a try and add this DIY holiday gift pick to your shopping list. And, hey, there’s nothing wrong with making yourself some, too!
