DIY Love: The Beauty of Pampering Others

People desperately need pampering. Our crazy schedules necessitate time to slow down, breathe, and care for ourselves. So what better gift to give your loved ones this holiday season than a gift that will allow them to do just that?

As I’ve developed Norabloom Botanicals, it has been with an eye towards making each product incredibly versatile, so here are three easy, effective DIY Beauty ideas for gifts you can make and give with love.


Detox baths are one of the best ways to eliminate toxins and inflammation from our system, increase depleted magnesium levels for better mood and sleep, and just unwind. The key is to stay in the bath for at least 40 minutes—the first 20 to detoxify, and the last 20 to absorb magnesium. 

Detox Herbal Bath Soak

Mix ingredients in a large bowl, then place in a small mason jar. Tie with twine and create a cute, handmade label. Add a few sprigs of dried lavender. 


Healthy nail care is just as important as healthy skin. You can tell so much by someone’s overall health by the look of their nails. If you struggle with peeling, brittle nails, you will love this Vitamin Cuticle Treatment. There are so many lovely non-toxic nail polishes on the market that would make a great addition to this homemade cuticle treatment. 

Vitamin Cuticle Treatment

  • 2 T Norabloom Organic Rosehip Seed Oil {contains a blend of highly nutritious oils}
  • 5 drops therapeutic-grade Lemon Essential Oil
  • 3 drops therapeutic-grade Lavender Essential Oil
  • Massage into cuticle at bedtime.

Mix ingredients in a glass vial or rollerball. Tie with twine and create a cute, handmade label. Add a few sprigs of dried lavender.


Full body exfoliation not only feels great, it's actually healthy for the body. As we age, the process of cell regeneration slows down. This means that the body is slower to shed skin cells and generate new ones. When old skin cells start to accumulate on the surface of the skin, it can leave skin looking dull, rough, and dry. Furthermore, the build-up of dead skin cells can result in excess oil and clogged pores, leading to blemishes and acne.

Proper exfoliation removes the barrier of dead skin cells clogging the skin and uncovers fresh new cells below. This opens the way for moisturizing products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, which makes them more effective. In short, a regular exfoliating routine will leave your skin looking fresh and healthy.

All Over Body Scrub

  • 1 Cup Organic Raw Sugar
  • 1 Cup Organic Coconut Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Norabloom Detox + Restore Tea
  • 2 Tbsp Jojoba
  • 15-20 drops Therapeutic-grade Essential Oils (optional)

Mix sugar and coconut oil with a mixer until it becomes a sand-like texture, then stir in tea, jojoba, and essential oils. Place in glass jars. Tie with twine and create a cute, handmade label. Add a few sprigs of dried lavender.
