Crafty Today: Lemony Hand Scrub
Our neighbors are delightful and very friendly. Every Christmas we receive a stockpile of delicious handmade treats from our neighbors. This year, I wanted to continue with the handmade theme, but make something that was useful and practical. I found this recipe from Gorgeously Green and then added my own creative touches to make it appropriate for Christmas giving.
Lemony Hand Scrub
- 1/3 c oil (I used grapeseed oil, but olive and almond will work too)
- 2/3 c sea salt
- Zest of 1 lemon
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 10 drops lavender essential oil
Combine the ingredients in a large bowl. If giving as gifts, separate into smaller jars.
The small jars came from World Market and cost 99 cents. I went to Stats, our local independent craft store, to purchase the pine cones. The leaf pins are from Maya Road and I purchased them online. I had the ribbon on hand and made the tags from scratch. I created the small tag in Word then punched it out with this punch. I tied the ribbon then tucked the tag underneath, added the leaf pin and hot glued the pine cone to the knot of the ribbon. Voila!
