Gold, Frankincense & Myrrh Gift Set

*Update 12.6.13–Here is the link to the Recipes, Tutorials and Free Printables : Gifts of Christmas

Too many sugar scrub recipes lately?  I couldn’t resist making a sugar scrub AND some bath salts this Christmas season using my Frankincense and Myrrh DoTerra Essential Oils.  I actually wanted to make them last Christmas…but was right in the middle of figuring out my food allergy issues…so it just didn’t happen.

I can’t believe another year has come and gone!!  Doesn’t it seem like time is speeding up as we get older?  Anyways…I am excited to share these new recipes with you!  I am so happy with how this whole gift idea just came together!

And…they BOTH smell so good!  They have a great spicy, warm…Christmas-y scent!  I did a little research on each of the oils traditional and ancient uses and tried to come up with the best use for each.  So…I went with a Frankincense Sugar Scrub due to the amazing skin benefits Frankincense provides.  It is actually a common ingredient in some skin care products.

And for the Myrrh, I decided to make some Myrrh Bath Salts.  Myrrh was anciently used in the embalming process and has purifying, restorative, revitalizing, and uplifting qualities. So I thought it would be perfect to be used in a nice, warm, relaxing bath environment.

I also wanted to include the third gift that the Wisemen brought to the baby Jesus and decided to add some Gold Chocolate Coins in a little linen pouch.

And of course I needed to have the perfect size of wooden crate for them to all fit in.  I made this crate out of leftover wood scraps and then stained it.  I will for sure share the tutorial for this for those of you who may be interested.

Now…I realize that MOST of you are not going to have essential oils Frankincense and Myrrh laying around the house.  If you do…GREAT!!  You can make some of these today…or at least when I share the recipe!

So, I thought it would be fun to give a set of Individual Frankincense and Myrrh DoTerra Essential Oils (not this gift basket) to one of you!  I have teamed up with my DoTerra girl…Julie Crowell with Drops of Life, who is so knowledgeable about these amazing oils.

She is happy to answer any questions you may have about these oils and can sell you any that you might be interested in. You can email Julie at [email protected] or message her on her FB page which you can access by clicking on the link above with her name.  I can not tell you how much I have loved having these oils for my family and I.

    Thanks for such a great idea and a chance at winning your wonderful giveaway! I made frankinsense and myrrh hot/cold packs with rice last year for teachers that were very popular!

    I am eagerly waiting for the tutorial. My sister lives in Texas, I in Utah. She sells DoTerra and loves to make her own lotions, bath salts etc. She will be so surprised and thrilled when she opens this for her present. Can’t wait for the details so I can get started. Specifically I hope you include a printable for the labels & don’t forget to add where you got the bottles. :-)
