Ahhhhhhh….we have only 3 days til Christmas! All the parties are officially over, and it’s time to prepare for all the family coming into town. WHAT?! I haven’t even finished doing my Christmas shopping…how am I going to accomplish the task now that all the cooking is getting underway?
It was time to hunt through the cupboards and get creative for the holidays. The result was a super easy and deliciously scented natural bath scrub that I just had to share.
Firstly, I rummaged through and found some cork in the garage. Then a quick trip to the kitchen produced mason jars and kosher salt.
I decided to make a scrub with some of my favorite aromas in the kitchen, lime (I used the zest of 4 limes)…
and ginger (I grated a frozen 1 inch piece)….
Mmmmmm, the smell was so good. Know time for some oil. Previously, I used coconut oil….but I honestly love the moisturizing feeling of olive oil (I often times will splash some on my hands after cooking and washing up in the kitchen).
Mix up the salt, lime and ginger….and then add in 1/4 cup of olive oil.
It was looking gorgeous.
Now, for completing the packaging for a very merry Christmas gift!
I used the lid insert to trace onto my cork board (the kind that you can buy at a craft store or hardware store). I quickly realized that due to it’s thickness, my lid would not close. So, I remedied it by using the circle cut-out in the ring lid instead.
Time for a homey label using a sharpie.
With a little hot gluing, my lid was finished….and so was the gift! One more Christmas gift down!!! Wahoooooo!!!
I love this gift! Pairing it with a mercury glass (check out our diy here) candle makes for a gift pairing packed with ambiance! Maybe I will crochet a wool washcloth to go with them….oh, I wish time would stand still for a sec!!
Merry Christmas and happy shopping/DIYing!
