Last-minute Holiday DIY Gift – Peppermint-Lavender Foot Soak Ornament

Foot soak ornament


I love giving thoughtful gifts for the holidays. Sometimes though, time gets away from me and I need something quick and easy that I can throw together in just minutes. This peppermint-lavender foot soak can be made with inexpensive ingredients and presented in a variety of different containers for a thoughtful, handmade holiday gift.

For this example, I made ornaments for the kids’ teachers to enjoy over their holiday break. Check out how I made them and download the free printable with easy, instructional gift tags!

What you need:

  • 20171219_1303111 cup Epsom salt
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 10-14 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 10-14 drops lavender essential oil
  • Glass ornaments
  • Ribbon

How to make:

Mix together Epsom salt and baking soda in a glass bowl. (Avoid plastic as it can retain the scent of the oils.)


Add drops of essential oils and mix well.


Use a funnel or create a paper funnel to carefully fill the ornaments.


Add ribbon and tag!
