Creative Welcome Bag Ideas
A common complaint I hear from event hosts is that they struggle to come up with unique ideas for welcome bags for guests. Personally, I think that the mere thought of giving a welcome bag speaks volumes and the contents are secondary. However, some folks like to create the perfect gift.
By popular demand, here are...
13 Simple Ideas for the Best Welcome Bag (not in any particular order)
1. Himalayan Salt Scrub
Salt or sugar scrub feel great on your skin. I use these in the shower on my legs, arms, and even a little on my lips.
Here’s what you need:
To make a large batch of himalayan salt scrub pour about 3 cups into a large bowl. Then stir in fractionated coconut oil to create combination of salt and fractionated coconut oil making a wet sand consistency. Once you find the right consistency, I fill the glass jars with mixture then add essential oils. I add 3 drops lavender and 3 drops peppermint to each 2 oz glass jar.
2. After sun spray
The perfect spray for your skin after a long day in the sun.
You will need:
First add a little witch hazel to the 2 oz spray bottle, then add 10 drops lavender and 10 drops peppermint, vitamin e (optional), 2 tbsp of aloe vera gel, and fill the rest with water.
3. Bug Spray
In a 2 oz bottle add 10 drops of lavender, 10 drops Citronella, and 10 drops of geranium. Add a squirt of witch hazel and fill the rest with water. There are a lot of other essential oils to use such as purification, lemongrass, and peppermint if you want.
4. Room or Bathroom Spray
How about a "room spray" or a "bathroom spray"?!
Our cabin we only have one bathroom so it can be scary for guests. Hand out room sprays to use in the bathroom to help everyone feel comfortable covering up those smells.
In a 2 oz bottle, add about 10-15 drops of essential oils such as thieves, lemon, purification, then add a little witch hazel and fill the rest with water.
5. Wellness Roller
In our Wellness Roller, we use 6 drops total in 2 ml, 20 drops total of essential oil in 5 ml, 40 drops total in 10 ml. Add your desired amount of either Thieves, Lemon, Raven, and Frankincense to roller then add fractionated coconut oil. Sometimes I keep it simple and just do thieves for samples.
7. Head Tension Roller
For the head tension roller, we use 10-15 drops of peppermint in a 5 ml bottle, 30 drops of peppermint in 10 ml roller then fill the rest with fractionated coconut oil.
8. Detox / Lemon Roller
For a good old fashioned Lemon Roller (aka detox support), we add 6 drops of lemon in 2ml, 15-20 drops of lemon to 5ml, Add 30-40 drops of lemon essential oil to 10ml, and fill the rest with fractionated coconut oil.
9. Tummy Roller
Tummy Roller Time...
Add Digize and peppermint to roller bottle. In a 2 ml bottle use 3 drops peppermint and 3 drops digize. In 5 ml use 10 drops digize and 10 drops peppermint, and in 10 ml use 20 drops digize and 20 drops of peppermint then fill the rest with fractionated coconut oil.
