Make & Give Home Apothecary - Easy Ideas for Making & Packaging Bath Bombs, Salts, Scrubs & More
Self-care is somewhat of an afterthought these days. With hectic schedules and not enough downtime, people become exhausted, burnt out, and even worse, sick. It is critically important to our well-being to spend some time de-stressing and taking care of our bodies and minds. Yet many times it is left too far down the “To-Do” list.
Lavender and Cocoa Butter Bath Melts
Warning: the mouthwatering scent of these luxurious bath melts may make you want to eat them.
Don’t get me wrong, the ingredients are so natural and wholesome that you absolutely could eat
them, but you’ll enjoy them much more in the bath. The calming fragrance of lavender will relax
your mind, while the cocoa butter and coconut oil will melt and absorb into your skin, leaving
it soft, smooth, and deeply hydrated. Just pop them into the hot water and soak for at least 20
minutes. These melts are a simple way to make any bath feel like a mini spa retreat—perfect for
those days when you need a little extra self-care without any extra effort!
Herbal Foot Soak
Our feet work so hard for us—taking us on adventures, being squeezed into gorgeous shoes, and
keeping us grounded. And yet they often don’t get the care they deserve. Soaking them in warm
water with salts and botanicals is a quick and easy way to pamper your hardworking feet and give
your whole body a bit of rest and relaxation. A foot soak can relieve muscle aches and stiffness,
reduce inflammation, and improve circulation. It can also soften dry skin and deodorize your feet.
But, more than anything else, it feels fantastic!
Double Chocolate Mint Lip Balm
If you like chocolate as a dessert, you will love it in your lip balm! This lip balm has both cocoa
butter and cocoa powder in it, giving it double the chocolaty skin benefits. Cocoa butter is ultra
moisturizing and it is readily absorbed into the skin because it melts at body temperature. Cocoa
powder is rich in skin anti-oxidants and gives the lip balm a hint of color. The mint essential oil
adds a cooling tingle to this luxurious lip balm and pairs perfectly with the chocolate.
Roller bottles are popular in aromatherapy as a way to apply an individual dose of herbal benefits
for a variety of different moods and ailments. Roller bottles can also make beautiful perfume
bottles. By replacing lab-created fragrances with naturally occurring essential oils, you’ll not only
smell good, you’ll feel pretty good too.

1. It includes very approachable projects that are simple and pretty quick to make.
2. It walks you though every step of the process, right down to adorable packaging ideas.
I recently made the calendula lotion bars and they came out so great. I had mentally prepared myself for a Pinterest-style fail, but they look amazing (see picture). Better yet, I gained a lot of confidence that I can actually make these things.
The book itself would be an excellent gift, but I think I'll keep it for myself and make lots of other gifts from it. The nice thing is that the recipes seem to make enough to give some away and keep some for myself.
I don't have kids, but I would imagine that these would be great projects to do with children too. So glad I took the plunge and gave one of these recipes a try.
