DIY Natural Health Products 2021

For someone who likes holistic and natural health, you probably don’t want to buy products for them that might contain chemicals or preservatives. Making their present is a much better option since you have full control over the ingredients. Here are some different DIY natural health products you can make and give as a gift.

Fruity Sugar Scrub

Tree Hut Shea Sugar Body Scrub Coconut Lime 18 oz

The first type of natural health product you can make for someone who prefer natural items is a fruity sugar scrub. You should preferably use lemon for this scrub, but the other fruit you add to it is completely up to you. You will use granulated white sugar for the scrubbing properties, then add some melted coconut oil and lemon essential oils to the mixture. Add in any other fruit extracts as well, such as almond, strawberry, or raspberry. Combine the ingredients until it is a scrub, but not too watery.

Seasoned Almonds

Happy Belly Whole Raw Almonds

For something that is consumed as a healthy snack instead of actually used on the body, you can make a batch of seasoned almonds. You can make any type of candied nuts, but for a Christmas gift, it is generally better to mix a batch of holiday almonds. To turn this into a healthy snack, try to use raw almonds with no salt added to them. You need to coat them in something that helps the seasonings stick, which could be honey, molasses, or even coconut oil. You will then sprinkle your seasoning, such as coconut sugar and gingerbread spice mix, or your own preferred seasonings.

Heating Pad

Sunbeam Electric Heating Pad with UltraHeat Technology

Another health-related product you can make for a friend or loved one is a heating pad. This is actually easier to make than you might imagine, and it will be cheaper for you to make. For a simple heating pad, you just need cotton fabric, thread, and filling like buckwheat hulls, oatmeal, beans, or barley. You can also add some essential oils, like lemon or lavender. You simply need to add the filling inside the cotton material and sew it up. Add the oils inside to the filling. It needs to use all material that are microwave-friendly because that is how it will be heated up.

DIY projects are fun to do and always make good gifts for Christmas or other special occasions. They are also really good when you have a healthy conscious friend or relative that doesn’t like store-bought, mass produced items.
