Home Made Gifts

For Christmas I made sugar scrub and put in little jars for all the ladies.  I haven't heard yet how they are enjoying it.

I also made lotion bars from bees wax, shea butter, coconut oil, olive oil, and grapeseed oil.  They are divine!  You can use them on your cuticles that get dry this time of year, hands, elbows, legs and knees, and feet too.  I did not add any oils for their scent alone.  Everything I used had value as a skin nourishment.  There are dozens of recipes out there, just find one that suits your needs and go for it.  Side note: a double broiler works best to melt the ingredients. (Thanks Mom!)
