Friday's Makes, Bakes & Learns #3



Today I've made a really easy body scrub which is kind to the skin and makes a great gift.  I got the recipe from Ideal Home's Complete Guide to Christmas.  There are also some nice foodie gift recipes and lots of other Christmassy things inside.  I love Christmas magazines.

All you need is a kilner or other jar, 150g Granulated Sugar, 125ml Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Essential Oils - I used geranium and lavender (10 drops in total), some lavender buds, a ribbon and a label.

In a mixing bowl combine the sugar, oil, essential oils and lavender buds.  Mix well and spoon into the jar.  



Decorate with the ribbon and label.
