4 Valentines Day recipes for pamper days and relaxing this season
Lavender Essential Oil Wax Tablets
Wax tablets are not only great for releasing beautiful scents in the home but also double up as a decoration too! They are fabulous for freshening up drawers, closets and shelving. You can make them personalised for your loved one by choosing from a range of scents including essential oils or fragrance oils. Why not add your own decoration from dried flowers to glitter, for an extra creative pizzazz. Simply hang them up in your home, wardrobe or lay in your drawer to allow the wax tablet to gently release the relaxing scent.

Heart Floral Scented Wax Melts
Want to create something for cosy nights in? Wax melts are perfect for creating an atmospheric scent in the evenings whether it’s floral, sweet or musky. Each melt can be added to a wax melt burner to release your chosen scent into a room. Watch the added mica powder or glitter swirl while they melt. Whether you are looking for a gift for friends or family you can make the scent, colour and decoration personal to them. Once made they can be stored in little bags or boxes and wrapped for a special touch.

Exfoliating Sugar Scrub
Want to add a sweet touch to a homemade gift? Sugar scrubs help promote healthy skin by exfoliating and removing dead skin cells. Scrubs also stimulate circulation and brighten tired skin. What’s great about sugar scrub is that you only need a few key ingredients to make your own at home. Its ingredients consist of carrier oil, essential oil and sugar.
