I love handmade gifts. It's amazing how much cheaper it can be to make a batch of something for several different people rather than spending $20-$30 on one person..depending on what you're making of course. When you haven't got the money to spare, and/or you're saving,
(like us) this makes a lovely gift for the lovely ladies in your life.
I found this recipe here on her website.
Supplies you will need:
2.5 cups of sugar (bag of sugar-$3.00 Walmart)
1 cup EV Olive oil. (liter-$7.00 Walmart)
4 Tablespoons of lemon juice. (pre-squeezed and packaged-$2.50 Walmart)
Glass jars with sealed lids. (Kerr 12 pk. 8 oz. $9.00 Walmart)
Pretty Ribbon (3 spools-$6.00 Michaels)
Metal spoons. (2 4 pk.-$2.00 Walmart)
About $30.00 total..gifts for at least 8 people.
I bought all my supplies at Walmart and Michaels.
The recipe is for 12 oz. jars, but you can use any size jar you'd like.
Mix 2 1/2 Cups of Sugar with 1 Cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Add in 4 Tablespoons of Lemon Juice.
You can use scented essential oils if you'd like instead or along with.
Mix well until a gritty paste forms and spoon into a glass container with a lid that seals.
The Sugar may settle once it sits for a while, so be sure to stir before using.
Pair your glass jar with a little metal spoon tied with some lovely lovely ribbon!
This scrub is great to use after any craft projects that leave your hands sticky or gummy...including paint!
Perfect in time for Christmas!
Will post photos of my own creations soon.
