Christmas Gifts

I downloaded a WONDERFUL eBook from a favorite website of mine,  http://heavenlyhomemakers.com/.  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!

  2. You can find them at health or natural food stores. Or you can order online...amazon.com, or this is a good site: http://www.mountainroseherbs.com/aroma/ess.html

  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! :)

  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.
