Last minute Christmas gift

I made hand scrub and body scrub today and filled some jars - extra decorated of course =) - to give away for Christmas. The hand scrub is so good, a dream for crafter's hands, even distress stains vanish, and the body scrub smells absolutely delicious. (A word of warning though, I used it in the shower this evening and the puppy went absolutely bananas when I came into the kitchen, I thought he was gonna eat me alive, haha )



The scrubs are so easy to make - and you probably have all you need in the kitchen already =)

Hand scrub:
mix 2½ cups of sugar, 1 cup of extra virgin olive oil and 4 tablespoons of lemon juice.

Body scrub:
mix 2 cups of brown sugar, 1 cup of regular sugar, 1 cup of sunflower oil and 1 tablespoon of vanilla aroma.

For noen herlige presanger Helene! For noen heldig-griser som får disse!!
Kan godt forstå at hunden prøvde å spise deg levende, vanilje er jo bare deilig :)
Tusen takk min søte venn for den herlige julekurven jeg fikk av deg, helt nydelig! MEN hver dag er en liten kamp med prinsessen for hun vil gjerne ha den på sitt tre, og jeg har den i stua hengene på en lyslykt...Nå har jeg satt den så høyt at hun ikke kan nå den! lol
Ønsker deg og din familie en fantastisk jul og et spennende nytt år
masse juleklemmer fra Jill
