Home-made Christmas Gift Ideas: Organic face scrub
An organic face scrub good enough to eat!
Hands up if you have these in your cupboard..
An empty jar or container
2 cups raw sugar
1 cup of oil (coconut or olive work well)
Some pure vanilla essence or vanilla bean powder
15 - 20 drops of pure essential oil (see oil combinations below)
If you don’t have any essential oils, that’s fine. The vanilla scent will be beautiful. This scrub is beautiful, aromatic and will make your face feel smoother than a babies bum. Best yet, it costs next to nothing to make. Add a cut out piece of material (like the jam ladies do), write on a swing tag and tie it all together with some brown string.
TO MAKE THE SRUB
Grab a bowl.
Add your sugar, oil, vanilla and essential oils.
Mix well to combine.
Pour into your jars and wrap ready for when you're in need of a 'something small but still lovely' gift to give to that boss of yours, or colleague or friend.
