Great Gift – Lemon Scrub

Last year I made a number of different things to give as little gifts.  You know, sometimes you just need a “little something” to give to co-workers, or perhaps a hostess gift, or whatever.  I started searching the web for some ideas.   They all turned out so cute, and were loved by everyone, so I thought maybe I would share the ideas/recipes/pictures with you.  Maybe you’ll get some ideas for your own gifts!!

The first posting that I’m sharing is “Lemon Scrub”.  I’m sure if you look around, you will find many different recipes on line, but this is the recipe I used and it turned out great.  I found it at this post:  http://meanmommyacademy.blogspot.com/2010/05/lemon-sugar-hand-scrub.html  (Thanks Jordan for sharing!)

1 C Sugar
1/4 C Canola Oil
2 T Lemon Juice
Lemon essential oil
(
Many of the recipes call for extra virgin olive oil, but, like Jordan, I found that the smell was a bit overwhelming.)

Mix everything together and quickly fill your jars before it separates.  They will need to mix it before using.
I went to Hobby Lobby and purchased some cute little jars, and to Crafts 2000 for the little wooden spoons…

I made some labels, and then personalized each one with the name of the person receiving the gift.  I also created a label to go on the top of the jar to explain what it was.  I printed it on card stock and then used a decorative punch to cut it out.   Finally I made a label to go on back with some directions.
Just in case you would like to make some Lemon Scrub for your friends, I’ve included the labels I made which you are free to use.  There is one label with a name (just to show you how I did it), and a few that just say “Lemon Scrub” in case you just want a generic gift.  You should be able to size these to fit your jars.  (If the resolution is not good enough just e-mail me and I will send you the higher resolution files.)

TOP LABEL
FRONT LABEL
BACK LABEL

Hope your friends enjoy this little gift as much as mine did.  Oh, and while you are making one for your friends, be sure to make one for yourself at the same time.  It’s GREAT stuff!!!!

I'm gonna go party now...

  2. This looks very tempting. Have you used it? Does it last? I might try it myself, before deciding to use it as a gift. Thanks for sharing this idea!
