Christmas Gifts

I downloaded a WONDERFUL eBook from a favorite website of mine,  The book is called Gifts in a Jar and has a ton of great ideas.  Here is the link, it is a free download.  

So, today I made up the recipe for Peppermint Sugar Body Scrub.  It took literally 2 minutes to make.  Here's the recipe:
1/2 c sugar (side note...what a great thing to do with refined white sugar without eating it!)
1/4 c olive oil
10 drops peppermint oil
1 drop eucalyptus oil

Mix well and put in a jar.  

I gave one of these to my daughter's teacher and am giving them out to some friends and I am searching for more jars because it was just so fun to make!

  1. Sounds like a great idea. Where can I get the oils?

  2. You can find them at health or natural food stores. Or you can order, or this is a good site:

  3. thank you so much for this Jamie, I'm in a live simply mode & this factors right in, I'm tried of giving people "stuff", so can't wait to try this out!!

  4. Ooooh, you are going to love it, Meg. I have really enjoyed it and it was SO easy to make. I also love knowing what I am putting on my skin. It just makes me feel good when I know what is going in or on my body. Simple is the way to go! :)

  5. How long does this last in the jar before giving it as a gift?

  6. They gave me a bunch of details & storage options, and offered to help more if I called back. If only other Companies had such service, I would never leave them.
