My brain knows that I never will, but the heart wants what it wants.
With Christmas just two weeks away, the to-do list is especially long. But I finally made a batch of gifts that I know will be repeated next year.
I made three quick scrubs today, resulting in twelve small gifts.
I bought a twelve-pack of 4-ounce Ball jars, printed some free labels, and spent a little over an hour in the kitchen. Not bad!
Here's a basic recipe that you can modify, based on your preferences.
1 cup sea salt, brown sugar or white sugar
3 T coconut or grapeseed oil
6-10 drops essential oil
That's it! I used lavender (and some chopped rosemary) with sea salt, cinnamon with brown sugar (but I think I'll try orange next time) and peppermint with white sugar.
I really appreciate anything handmade, and I can't wait to try these scrubs for myself. And of course, I can't wait to give them!
