Christmas'y' Doing's Pt.2

Handmade gifts are often times the most meaningful and typically the most economical as well.
In striving to cut down Christmas expenses this year we opted to find a few fun items to make for gifts. Gifts for those we want to know we care.
First up: Vanilla Sugar Scrub! 
 Ohhhh so easy. 3 cups Sugar, 1 c. Almond Oil and Essential oil to scent. I happened to use Vanilla. Though I did see an awesome peppermint scent or even Lavendar would be really nice.
 The Hannah enjoyed stirring. While sucking on a Peppermint stick.
 And the Nathan enjoyed licking the mixing spoon. Honestly. Eating hand scrub? Yep. Sugar and oil. Yum. ha!
 I used the very small jelly jars and a 1/4 c. measurer and scooped it into the jars.
 I simply used the little labels in the jar box.
 And tied some ribbon I found at Dollar General around the lid. Voila! A lovely little gift.
Perfect for Piano teachers, Sabbath School teachers, friends and family alike! :)
Mmm..... it feels nice. Incidentally I made a jar or two using brown sugar and loved the results! Try it sometime!
